Deborah longs to honor her sister's choice, but why can't Abby see Edward's superior character and the miracle of his return? Edward Hunter has come back to life in the eyes of his friends and family. Marooned on a deserted island, only the Lord and thoughts of his beloved Abigail kept him going. But now that he's home, he finds he and Abigail aren't who they used to be. . . and neither is Abigail's little sister, Debbie.
