“A great story about His ability to turn even the worst situation into a blessing.” —Kimberla Lawson Roby, New York Times bestselling author

How far will faith and love go when an ambitious man finds himself in the fight of his life—with a woman who knows the other side of goodness all too well…

Fifty-year-old Alabama congressman Lawrence Rudolph Simmons will do whatever it takes to get re-elected—even switch parties from Democrat to Republican. With the political tide turning, Lawrence feels it’s his best shot—along with his charisma, solid twenty-nine year marriage, and three great kids. But a buried secret from his past is about to be resurrected.…

It’s been eight years since Gabrielle Mercedes gave up her baby for adoption. But when she learns the child desperately needs a bone marrow transplant, she doesn’t hesitate to contact the congressman. Like Lawrence, Gabrielle will fight for what she wants, even if it means the truth could ruin someone else’s life and career….

“I absolutely love Vanessa’s unique writing style. She is one of a kind.” —Mary Monroe, New York Times bestselling author

“There are enough tears, hugs, and lessons learned before summer’s over to appease readers, young and adult, who like a good dose of faith with their fiction.” —Publishers Weekly on Ray of Hope
