MATTHEW BALDWIN approached the luggage carrier at the airport of his “home town” of Lubbock, Texas. He’d been born there, and spent the fi rst eight years of his life in Ransom Canyon, then his mother whisked the family away in the dead of night, running from a vindictive, vengeful, cruel grandmother. On occasion, the past came looming up at him like a big, black monster. Unresolved questions remained. Questions he’d run from all those years ago. And now he was headed right back into the throes of those dark memories.
He could do this. He’d faced much more harrowing events in Afghanistan. Dangers you could touch, and see, and hear, and smell. What he had to face in Ransom Canyon, however, had been growing deep inside him like a tangle of seaweed wrapped around his heart.
But there’s more to the story than gloom and doom and bad memories. God made sure of it. For the breath of fresh air that stole his heart at fi rst glance would prove to be his greatest blessing and greatest challenge.
Jessica Roberts, with her sparkling eyes and newspaper reporter persona captured Matt’s heart in the fi rst hour they met. Th e dangers and intrigue that would make up the road to their future stretched them both, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Join us on this exciting adventure, and see how, when and where God works everything out for the good of those who love Him, and are called according to His purpose.
