After much prayer Brad knows what he needs to do. He has to tell his fiance that he needs to go back into his past and seek forgiveness from his first love. He had tried to move on from the past but he realizes that he cannot move on into a new chapter in his life until the last chapter is finished. He must tell her secrets that he had never spoken before.
While Brad is off with is ex-girlfriend his fiance is left to struggle with this new information from a man she is supposed to be marrying in six weeks. Can Brad and his fiance find the forgiveness that they need, will their wedding plans continue? Can God work in both their hearts to bring healing?
This is a great story. I think it's one that many teenagers need to read. It talks about choices that we make in our youth that can bring many consequences even years later. Why waiting is so important in so many ways!
I recommend this book, Karen Kingsbury really deals with so many day to day issues that we have all walked through. Her stories are honest and encouraging. I recommend any of her books!
