In order to get better acquainted with Nell and one another, Melinda and Nick agree to spend the summer in their own private quarters of the Bryson family vacation home, Summerhill.

"When the unthinkable happens, they find themselves faced with seemingly impossible choices and a new understanding of God's true love."
For a lot of Christians, it's hard to put our relationships in His hands. If we're single, we go out and go to any means to get someone's attention, sometimes to only be dissapointed. God has the perfect person out there for us, we just need to put that in His hands and trust that He will put that person into your life.
That's what happens to the two main characters in this book, except when that person is placed into their lives, they don't want to listen to God because they like their past lives of fancy things and money.
