"For abandoned wife Annabelle Beachey, Promise Lodge is a refuge where she's gained confidence and self-sufficiency. But she and others are dismayed when newly-arrived Bishop Clayton King claims the community is too progressive and sets out to change its ways. Worse, her husband, Phineas, returns, expecting her to give up her faith as he has. And he won't leave Promise Lodge without her . . . But little by little, Annabelle's determination and new forthrightness make Phineas realize his mistakes--and truly hear his wife for the first time. Meanwhile, Annabelle finds herself feeling compassion--and even renewed love--for her newly humble, more caring husband. And as Bishop Clayton's attempt to control Promise Lodge threatens everything its residents have built, Phineas and Annabelle must work together with unshakeable courage to save their new home--and their opportunity for forever happiness."-- Provided by publisher.
