“Another great book by Lila Diller. I have read this one and the first one. Finished both of them in one day. I didn't want to put it down until I was finished! Good Christian story line.” - Gayle, November 1, 2017
“This book was awesome in the sense that Morgan and her beau (no spoiler alert), face struggles that a lot of couples encounter. I love how Morgan turns to the Bible when she's unsure how to proceed. I can't wait for the rest of the series! ;)” - Jessica, February 14, 2018

Patience just means you get through the waiting, right?
