My favorite quotes from book:

>Faith, Hope & the greatest of all; love. She whispered those words aloud, over and over until her faith was renewed, hope replaced her despair and love instead of anger, filled her heart when she thought of the two people God had brought into her life who made her feel safe.

>Father, I don't know why you've brought me into this man's life and here to this place, but I trust you. I know that my life will unfold according to your plan, but right now, I don't understand what plan that might be.
