But Ryan contends with his own set of family difficulties and circumstances that just might overwhelm their fledgling relationship.

“How do you feel about God, Collin?” 
 
“I don’t.”
 
Collin Edwards, a former parishioner at Woodland Church of Christ, has renounced God without apology, his faith drained away in the face of a tragic loss.
 
Daveny Montgomery cares deeply about her relationship with God and the community of Woodland. But lately she's been in a rut, longing for something to reignite her spiritual enthusiasm.
 
A beautification project at Woodland seems the answer for them both. Daveny spearheads the effort and Collin assists—but only with the renovations, and only because he wants to know Daveny better.
 
Despite his deepening feelings for her, even stepping into the common areas of the church stirs tension and anger.
 
Can Daveny trust in Collin’s fledgling return to faith? And can Collin ever accept the fact that while he turned his back on God, God never turned his back on him?
