Hillary Smith is not about to fall in love with Jack Hayden; she's known him for years, but he's never been her type. Jack, on the other hand, can't remember when he didn't love Hillary, and has determined to, win her over. "Just friend" simply isn't enough for this handsome boy who loves the land almost as much as he loves Hillary. So he waits . . . and waits . . . and waits. Until he can't wait any longer.
Jack and Hillary's path to romance is strewn with obstacles, making true love all the sweeter when it finally blossoms and begins to grow. Then, just when "happily ever after" seems assured, the cruelest twist of all threatens to destroy their dreams and rip apart the tender fabric of their lives. Can they face a life-changing tragedy with faith sufficient to heal the wounds of despair and give them courage to start over? The answer is anything but easy, and their love is tested in ways that are sometimes beyond comprehension.
In When Forever Comes, best-selling author Anita Stansfield has once again created a powerful and deeply romantic story that touches the human spirit and magically captures glimpses of eternity. It's a drama that will linger in your mind and heard long after the final page is turned. [publisher's blurb]
