Just months after the horrific attack that forever changed her life, Jessica Hanson decided to seek a new start in a small town in southern Illinois. On her own and no longer willing to yield to a God who seemingly abandoned her, she hopes to overcome her constant, consuming fear, not to mention the child that’s growing inside her. What she doesn’t realize is that while she might be running from God, He’s not letting her go.
Zeke Phillips, a trumpeter who’s long been trying to forget the regrets of his past, makes an escape in Illinois from the reputation that still stubbornly haunts him. Little does he know that by one chance encounter, he’ll meet a woman who brings back the past with striking reality—so much that he’s forced to return to it and finally face what’s been hidden away for the past three years.
Through an unexpected spark and both literal and figurative trials, they both learn the true meaning of peace, joy, love, and God’s will. They celebrate the very essence of rejoicing and find the heart of a resounding, awestruck hallelujah.
