Publisher's Summary

A Southern novel full of friendships and finding love.

"There's no time", Colin said. "You have to go. Find me, call me...." 

Jacey and Colin shared the three most intense days of their lives together, waiting for help as Mississippi floodwaters surrounded them. Jacey knew Colin was the love of her life - until her rescue boat went underwater along with Colin's last name and pieces of Jacey's memory. 

The last thing she remembered was being submerged in water. Again. 

As Jacey walks down the aisle as the maid of honor in her friend's wedding a year later, the last person she expects to see is Colin. The biggest surprise, though, is that the man of her dreams is not wearing jeans and flip-flops, as he did when he held her through those long nights of the flood. He's the preacher. 

As Jacey's memories come flooding back, it's almost more than she can take. The fate of the young family trapped with them haunts her. The unwavering honesty - and support - of her best friend, Georgia, forces her to take a fresh look at herself. She's spent her life afraid of love. But a flood is opening Jacey's heart in the most unexpected ways.

I'm Praying For A Book 2.

This story was absolutely beautiful. Friendship, Love, compassion. I've also listened to, The Secret To Hummingbird Cake by this author and I loved that one as well. She really knows how to pull at your heartstrings, which I appreciate. I can't leave out the narrator, her narration of these two books, OUTSTANDING. The way she brings this story and each character to life, PRICELESS. I did not want this story to end. I'm keeping my fingers cross that there will be a book 2!🤞
