Laura Graham should have been the happiest girl on the McClure College campus when Matthew, football captain and campus hero, declared his love for her. But happiness seems beyond her grasp because of a solemn promise she’d made long before. Matthew, himself, had planned to spend his life happily serving God in the ministry until an eloquent and persuasive professor causes him to doubt not just God’s love but His very existence. The situation is compounded by the disappearance of his father, who apparently absconded with thousands of dollars after a lifetime above reproach in the ministry. Then the little boy whom Matt befriends is beaten nearly to death by his abusive mother. Matthew is driven to despair, thirsting for the sweet water of God’s grace, but fearful it is forever beyond his reach. This is a thoughtful love story of loss and redemption and offers satisfying answers to humanity’s deepest heart needs.
