Amy Gallagher is an aspiring writer who, after countless rejections, has settled for a career as an English professor in small-town Ohio just to pay the bills. All her dreams suddenly start to unravel as rejections pile up--both from publishers and her boyfriend.
But just as Amy fears her life is stuck in a holding pattern, she meets the mysterious, attractive, and unavailable Eli. She struggles to walk the fine line between friendship and something more with Eli, even as staying true to her faith becomes unexpectedly complicated.
When secrets, tragedy, and poor decisions cause rifts in Amy's relationships, she must come to terms with who she's become, her unrealized aspirations for her life, and the state of her faith. Can she dare to hope that she will find love and fulfillment despite it all?

Amy Gallagher is a thirty something woman who is trying to write her first novel. She is a Christian who has had firmly held convictions, but over the past few years she has questioned some of those in light of her relationships.
I am not sure where your comfort level lies in reading a book, but I personally do not like to read about unclothed people in a Christian fiction novel. I think there were some boundaries crossed in this book both physically and spiritually with which I don't personally agree. Nothing "harlequin" style or that sort, but things that I felt inappropriate for this genre.
I did appreciate the story line as I know that there are so many career singles who face the challenges that Amy talk about in this story line.
