Summary:

Just a week before their marriage, Christine's fiance calls off the wedding, leaving her heartbroken. With hopes of helping her through a difficult time, Christine's best friend Jessica enrolls them both on a humanitarian mission in Peru, to work at an orphanage called El Girasol -- The Sunflower.

While working at the orphanage Christine meets Paul Cook, a successful and charismatic American doctor who has fled the States after one fatal day took away his career, his faith, and the woman he loved.

Unplanned events lead Paul and Christine into the jungle of the Amazon, where Christine must confront her deepest fears, and she, and Paul, must both learn to trust and love again.

    Interesting book. I liked hearing some of interesting details, but I didn't really get involved with the book.

    My wife loved this book and would give it five stars. Personally, I’m not that much for romance (just ask my wife) so I would only give it three stars… so we’ll compromise at four. Even though the love story didn’t interest me much I appreciated the main characters yearning to do something meaningful in life. Also, the descriptions of Peru were interesting. Still, something about the writing style seemed a little simplistic.
