Emily Faith Johnson is no stranger to the dark recesses of loneliness, pain, sorrow, and despair. Her life is marked by unrelenting abuse, from the verbal onslaught of her bitter, alcoholic mother to the physical aggression perpetrated by godless men. She copes as best she knows how-existing in a fog while numbly going through the motions of life. Then, one day, four months before her twenty-first birthday, everything changes when she wakes up in the cab of a tractor trailer, faced with the fear of the unknown, the offer of a man she barely knows, and the promise of a complete stranger. Will she be able to find the courage necessary to attain a better life free from abuse? To trust a man who makes her question everything she knows to be true? To believe in a God whom she knows nothing about? To rise above her past to become the woman she was meant to be?
This second novel in the Surrendered Hearts series is a beautiful story of redeeming love.

Wow! What another powerful and excellent novel by Shauna! Though I felt a few parts were a little drawn out, the message this story delivers was very powerful. I can't say it's just one thing because there were quite a few that really spoke to my heart. Just as I did with book one, I had to set it down at times to really think about conservations or words spoken by different characters. Emily's story really touched my heart and made me want to be more involved in actively helping/ministering to others, whether it's abused women or fellow book worms. It also made want to show more appreciation to my husband as my partner in marriage for Christ. A heart-wrenching and redemptive story for any reader!
