Born in Colonia Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, nine-year-old Mattie turns her back on God when her father dies. She vows never to pray again, except perhaps to ask why. But years later, as she places her trust--and heart--in the hands of a dangerous man, Mattie discovers that though she may have left God, He never left her. She takes her first step to recover and tries to decipher the depths of her broken heart, finding love again--perhaps not in the place she thought.
