When Pastor Eli Daniels's wife and brother ran away together, he was the one who lost—his family, his church, and his faith. All he has left are his four-year-old daughter and a little church in the world's smallest town. But he still has his speaking talent, and with it, he’s sure he can build up their numbers so he can catch the attention of another mega-church. He needs to be back in the big time, where he belongs.
Glory Matthews voted against hiring the new minister. He's single and handsome and more charismatic than any man has a right to be. He’ll draw every man-hunting woman around. And because he's used to the big time, he won't stay long . But when Eli is with his daughter, he's down-to-earth, loving and everything she could want, and Glory’s heart melts like a forgotten candle burning in the night.
If it's one thing Eli doesn't need, it's Glory Matthews. She's head-strong, pretty, faithful and doesn't seem to be fazed by his "celebrity." But Glory is also everything he could ever want, and somehow this Jordan Valley miss, just might help him find his faith and mend his heart.
