Calming the Storm: A Marriage of Convenience
A marriage of convenience isn't exactly what Rachel Peters had in mind. What else can she do if she wants to raise her young niece, and give her a more stable home than she and her sister grew up in? Rachel is at risk of losing custody of her last blood relative, and she needs to prove she can provide for her niece and raise her in a nurturing environment. Professor Brandon Barlow is invested in his college students’ lives, wanting to ensure their success. When it is clear that Rachel is struggling, he takes a personal interest in trying to help her. But can he keep his heart from getting involved in the process? Brandon reaches out to Rachel as he tries to break through the walls she has built up over the years. With love and patience, Brandon hopes to help Rachel realize that, even when she experiences storms in her life, she isn't always alone.
Why the author wrote this book:
This book was on my heart for years before I finally finished it. It still remains one of my favorite stories. It was inspired by Scott Krippayne's song, Sometimes He Calms the Storm, which always meant a lot to me.
