Life is going smoothly until a series of storms hit -- one a literal tornado, which destroys the roof of Claire's home, displacing her and her four children. The other is an emotional blow, in the form of Greg's announcement that he wants to go to Bible school for the next two years. Sure, Claire knew he was a religious man, committed to his church, as he's already been an assistant pastor. But to go the distance, especially now that they're talking marriage? Claire doesn't think she could be a pastor's wife.
Then, there's all the stress surrounding her next book. Even worse, the woman Claire's accustomed to working with has gone on maternity leave, and suddenly it doesn't seem like anyone's got her back.
Finally, there's Claire's ex Rick, expecting his first child with his perfect new wife Darcy. Although in general Claire has made her peace with her failed marriage, and gotten to grudgingly accept and even like Darcy, it's still hard to stomach the thought of his life moving on without her.
Now Claire's back to having panic attacks, and she knows she's got to get her life back in check. So when she inadvertently learns about a life coach from her best friend Linda, she decides to give it a shot. What has she got to lose?
Faith, however, is the backbone of this book, as it is in Claire's life. All along, she knows that her life is in God's hands, and it's up to her to allow Him to lead her -- though she may sometimes forget.
Overall, Claire, her family, and friends are enjoyable and believable. They are religious, but they also wisecrack and live just as anyone else. They have their flaws, and simply learn and move on from their countless mistakes. Readers will root for Claire Everett, looking forward to hearing more about her life in following novels.
