Take One by Karen Kingsbury

Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison left the mission field to come back to the states and created movies that reach people and changes their lives. This is their first independent movie and though they raised money it's only enough to film for 4 weeks with no set backs.

When filming starts in Indianapolis (where Keith's daughter Andi is going to school) they have many setbacks in just the first day. The next four weeks test Chase and Keith's faith. To trust that they heard God's calling and believing that He will provide for them.

As part of the story it also follows Andi Ellison (Keith's daughter) in her first year of college off the mission field. She feels like she has been segregated from the real world. Her best friend had been killed and now Andi is questioning her belief in God. Keith and his wife Lisa are excited that her dorm roommate is Bailey Flanigan (a character from Karen Kingsbury's Redemption series - which I've heard is really good!) who is a strong Christian example.

This is book one of Above The Line series. It was a good story and I'm interested to see what happens in the rest of the series with the different characters.
