Jessie felt sick as she hung up the phone. She knew the call was coming and was sure of the horrible news it would bring. She also knew if she had not followed her instincts the night before, she too would be part of the headlines in tomorrow's paper.
After the drive-inn last night, some of Jessie' s friends had asked her to head to Littleton for pizza. She knew it was only a 30-minute drive, but something in the pit of her stomach told her not to go. She had learned long ago to trust her instincts or live with the consequences. Jessie made up an excuse of not feeling well and called home for a ride. She could never tell anyone how she knew certain things. That was one of the reasons Jessie's parents had moved the family halfway across the country this spring. They all needed a fresh start.
Jessie goes through one battle after another. Each time she comes up for air, another wave knocks her below the surface.
A new town, a new beginning, right?
David and Jessie, must figure out the mysteries and secrets of their new home. As Jessie steps into her destiny, with David at her side, they discover the roots of the movement run deep here, and their family structure has been built on false foundations.
How do they build from here?

Jessie froze at the sight of an empty hospital bed. Where was David? Her heart beating faster than a jackhammer. “David?” She could barely breathe as she heard the toilet flush. Setting her clothes on the bed, she perched on the edge waiting in anticipation for him to appear.
Her excitement quickly faded when the figure emerged, drying his hands. “Hi Jessie.” Jack met her with a wry grin.
“What are you doing here?” She quickly stood and held her ground.
“Came to see my boy. He seems to be out.” He pointed to the empty bed and mused.
