After surviving a fire, Noelle Walker is finished with undergoing unsuccessful operations to eliminate facial scars and to restore the use of her hand. Her neighbor, owing his life to Noelle's selfless rescue, finances her Valselo pilgrimage where she might experience the living presence of the Mother of God. Noelle silently prays to receive the miracle of self-acceptance so that she might live normally despite her gnawing self-consciousness about her appearance.
When she meets the handsome Shane Thompson, his avid, romantic attention makes Noelle believe that perhaps miracles do happen in the quaint Adriatic village. The renowned maxillofacial surgeon doesn't seem to care that her hand is crippled and her face is scarred-that is until he claims he can give her "her miracle."
Noelle survived the fire, but will she survive her broken heart after concluding Shane's interest is conditional on fixing her appearance?
Will Shane acknowledge that only God can perform miracles, and can he convince Noelle that he loves her regardless of her scars, and not because of them?

In Left at the Altar, Emma rejects Sam's proposal of marriage when it includes moving to a foreign country. What happens when Emma meets Sam again at his new place of living? Will love win out? I recieved this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
A solid second installment in the Gospa Journeys series. I recommend it.
