Madeleine, a young widow who is determined to be independent, agrees to help her aunt restore the old family home in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. She ends up involved with two men and a mystery wrapped in fire. How could this be part of God’s plan?
She hurries off to join her aunt’s house-restoration project in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. God has set His own plans into motion. Two men enter her life, bringing both fear and joy.
The doctor, who has a fire-scarred past, is not upset by her panic attacks and knows he can help her to heal. The writer, who conceals more than one secret, admires her spirit and is certain that she needs him. God uses both men and her father’s gift of an exquisite glass paperweight to remind Madeleine of His enduring “forever love,” and as she yields to Him, she finds the courage to take a new and challenging path.
