A marriage of convenience isn’t exactly what Rachel Peters had in mind. What else can she do if she wants to raise her young niece, and give her a more stable home than she and her sister grew up in? Rachel is at risk of losing custody of her last blood relative, and she needs to prove she can provide for her niece and raise her in a nurturing environment. 

Professor Brandon Barlow is invested in his college students’ lives, wanting to ensure their success. When it is clear that Rachel is struggling, he takes a personal interest in trying to help her. But can he keep his heart from getting involved in the process? 

Brandon reaches out to Rachel as he tries to break through the walls she has built up over the years. With love and patience, Brandon hopes to help Rachel realize that, even when she experiences storms in her life, she isn’t always alone.

“It was a sweet romance story that also demonstrated the love, patience, and concern of God.”

“Truly one of a kind inspirational love story about trusting in God and in others!”

Author note: All through my life, music has always inspired me and comforted me. The song, “Sometimes He Calms the Storm” on Scott Krippayne’s album Wild Imagination was a favorite. Whenever I felt overwhelmed by something, I would play this song and remember that I wasn’t going through it alone. Even when the storm seemed to be raging around me, God was holding me close and helping me survive.
