Overview

A baby is dead and Callie Stillman blames herself. Haunted by memories of a tiny coffin, Callie can’t understand how God could expect her to put her heart on the line a second time. But the evasive little girl attending her Sunday School class is so obviously in trouble that Callie finds her resolve cracking.

Iris and Samantha Evans are living on borrowed time. Deserted, orphaned, betrayed, and deceived, they need rescuing in the worst way.

Steve Evans had his life changed by God. A reformed drug addict, he’s searching for the family he abandoned ten years ago and praying for a miracle.

The road to healing is rocky. But as Callie confronts her worst fears by bringing father and daughters together in a risky bid for reconciliation, she realizes that the Evans family aren’t the only ones God wants to rescue from a tortured past.

I usually don't read middle age novels, this was free and I decided to read it. I wasn't dissapointed. It was good, kept me turning the pages far into the night. Most of all it was good clean romace and morals. Good book!

233 pages, could usr a bit of editing. Very religious, very clean. Not run of the mill. Held my interest. For ages 12 and up, but not YA. Stand alone, free. A little too cheesy and dramatic at times, but over all, a very nice read. AD

I loved this book, I could not put it down, Im anxiously waiting to start the next one. The author, Sharon Srock, definitely hooks you immediately with the story line. I can see that I will most likely read the entire series. Great Christian story.

A little less prayer with bible quotes and references to the past, over & over, with a little more plot would have helped. Great characters, just not enough meat to the storie.

Callie is the first book that started the fabulous Women of Valley View series. I have read the others of this series and it was great on how it all began. This book is full of inspiration and I have already recommended it to friends. 5 stars

This was a tear-jerker--warning, warning--lay in a stock of tissue before you read this book! Callie Stillman is overwhelmed by guilt. She had been instrumental in having baby Sawyer returned to his mother after child protective services had removed him from the abusive home. Six month later, the father beat the child to death. Sawyer's terrified cries ring in Callie's ears whenever she's asleep or even sometimes when she's awake. It's a living nightmare that haunts her. She's lost weight because she can't eat, endures the dark circles under her eyes because she doesn't get nearly enough sleep, and tries to hide that she's been crying again. And now in her Sunday school class, the overly-quiet eleven-year old Iris catches her attention. It's one of those God things. She knows God wants her to find out what's troubling this child and help her, but Callie is afraid. And Benton, her husband, says "no." He fears his wife might go the rest of the way over the edge. At which negative answer she should be relieved, but what's wrong with Iris?
