Emily is now in college and the story begins to focus on her as she attends college, plays soccer, and falls in love with Justin. Justin is in the Army and is deployed months after they meet and fall in love. The book follows their love as it is built and is an inspiration to Emily's parents. It also follows the tragedy that Emily faces and the hope that brings her through it. Kingsbury once again provides a wonderful story that is very realistic to today with a Christian perspective. It's the type of story that because it is realistic it doesn't always turn out the way that you had hoped with the perfect happily ever after you originally envisioned.

The author's conservative Christian spin on the war and the military comes through loud and clear in this book, which may be offputting to some readers. Also, if you like happy endings this is not the story for you.

A must read for anyone who has someone serving in the military, or who knows someone serving in the military, as well as veterans and their families; helps us discover the meaning of sacrifice, and the great love God has for us who sacrificed His Son on our behalf.
