Amber Hill never imagined she would find herself a war widow and single mom. She feels robbed and is angry at God, and she doesn’t know how to help her nine-year-old daughter, Bree, through her grief. Where, Amber wonders, are the Sunday dinners, the picnics, the bike rides, the time together they should be enjoying as a family? Instead, Amber is left with a folded flag and an empty heart.
Cody Jackson has a death wish. Or at least that’s what his manager thinks as Cody pushes his race car and his luck in every competition. Is he hiding something by tempting death and destruction on the track? When Cody encourages Bree to join in a derby car race for local youth, she finds a way to channel her grief into something good. And she likes that her mom and Cody are starting to become friends—or maybe something more.
As Amber struggles to hold it all together, her growing feelings for Cody complicate things. But when Amber and Bree go to see him race and watch Cody narrowly escape a devastating crash, she realizes she can’t lose another person in her life. It’s better to be alone than to feel that type of grief again. And when the unthinkable happens, she has nowhere left to turn and finally cries out to God for help. With her faith, her life, her family, and her heart hanging in the balance, Amber is forced to decide between the broken road she knows so well and trusting that God will provide a new path.
