Mary Bridget (Bridie) is on the run.  After leaving a tip to turn in her buddies who were cooking meth, she has hit the road, settling into a small town in Virginia.  She is tired of running and tired of looking over her shoulder all the time.  Working in a local grocery store and sharing an apartment with a co-worker, she is just starting to feel like life might be settling down.
Alasdair MacPherson, is a pastor with more trouble than he can truly bear, only he isn't quite aware of how much trouble he actually has.  He is a fairly oblivious person, living bound up by grief.  A widower for two short years, Alasdair has been left with a young daughter, entering her teen years and two babies.  How in the world can he manage his life as a pastor, especially a pastor with a target on his back.  The church is disgruntled, feeling unloved by the attention they are NOT receiving. 
Two totally different people on paths that will collide, will they be able to help each other?  Will they each survive their own troubles and trials. 
For me, this book was a bit slow, but once you got into the story it picked up.  Linda Nichols has written a story that will keep you reading.  350 pages US$14.99 4 stars
