She looked to the sky for true north but found that home is where the heart is.
When heartbroken Mallory Carter leaves home at graduation to live a free-spirited life at the beach, she decides to never burden her family or God with her choices again. She suffers twelve long years of loneliness and shallow relationships, comforted only by the homemade telescope she uses to stargaze. Then she receives a call that her sister has died, leaving behind a son—the son Mallory gave up at the tender age of seventeen. When her family pressures her to raise Samuel, she agrees, despite the fact that he’s unaware of their true relationship.
Handsome architect, and Samuel’s uncle, Brady Donaldson welcomes Mallory to the family, but she doesn’t know how much she can trust him. Brady has a bond with Samuel that Mallory has only been able to dream of for the last twelve years. Not only that, but Mallory holds secrets that could ruin her new life.
As threats surface from Mallory’s past, the relationship she is building with her son is endangered. She realizes she desperately needs someone to trust, and Brady seems determined to fight for Mallory and Samuel. Searching for true north has never felt so hard. Will Brady’s steady love be enough to guide Mallory home, and to the God she abandoned long ago?
