Abby was young, only a junior in high school. Her entire life waited before her, with big plans to go to college. Her parents were strict, stricter than most parents, and sex before marriage was not tolerated in her church. Jimmy was a high school senior with a basketball scholarship to an ivy-league college. When they meet at a party, one that Abby snuck out of the house to attend, their lives head down completely different paths when she ends up pregnant. Jimmy is determined to stand by Abby, but when her overbearing parents and their extremist church find out about the pregnancy, the young couple is torn apart, with devastating consequences. Pastor David Owens answers Abby's call for help when she appears at his church. She is on the brink of suicide, threatening to take her infant daughter with her. David had been grumbling about his new position, questioning why God had sent him to this small coastal town, now he thinks he knows exactly why: he's meant to save this girl's life.
