With her sister Abby’s encouragement, Rebecca has moved out of their overbearing father’s home. When a chance encounter with Chris ends with an invitation, Rebecca says yes. The authentic way Chris lives his life attracts Rebecca and garners her affection.
Chris loves Rebecca and her innocence, but he’s confounded by the emotional scars she bears from her parents and an attempted assault. Her father’s disdain for Chris’s faith and career only make matters worse.
With the counsel of their friend Father John, can Rebecca and Chris overcome every obstacle and bridge the deepening gulf between them and her dad? Or will a crucial lapse in judgment and its repercussion end their relationship?
“Stay with Me bursts with realistic characters, scenic background, humor, heartache and jubilee.”
“A love story but, more than that, it’s a life story.”
Author note: A variety of experiences inspired Stay With Me, including a blog post about abstinence education, visits to Shenandoah National Park, and a chance meeting in a grocery store. Mostly I hope readers will take away the message that authentic love and sexual chastity are worthwhile pursuits, and that despite our sins and weaknesses, freedom can be found in love anchored in God’s love and forgiveness.
