ABOUT THE BOOK
Abandoned as a teenager, guidance counselor Tate Malone has become surrogate and over-protective father to his sister. Life is great until Shelby Coltman wheedles his impressionable sister into sharing an apartment. Raised in wealth, the beautiful Shelby could never understand poverty or rejection, and Tate doesn't appreciate her uprooting his sister. When Shelby hands over her savings to a homeless student, will God obliterate Tate's fears and deliver all of Shelby’s dreams...when hope rises?

Over protective fathers.....did you have one? I did...my daughter certainly does....sometimes it drives her crazy! But how would you feel about your brother taking on that role? I think it would have put me over the edge!
Shelby is one of those people that you would believe to be spoiled, yet turning over her savings shows the complete opposite.
I just love it when characters are able to surprise me....
..and Tate's fears, you just wonder while reading, will he overcome them, or will they be fears that come to truth?
A great quick, summer-time read!
