When Never Comes by Barbara Davis
When Never Comes is the story of a woman trapped in her own past, limited in all the ways she’s been hurt by others. But when love presents itself in new and unexpected ways, she has to face all the doors she’s closed…all the nevers she’s clung to. This is a story of love, hope, redemption, and rediscovering who you were meant to be, and it will resonate with readers who love a tale full of heart and soul.
In Barbara Davis’s novel you explore pain, loss, and despair of a woman who takes the risk of loving again. Desperate for answers, she’s shattered to learn that Stephen and his mistress had a child – a little girl named Iris, who now lives in poverty with her ailing great-grandmother. The thought of Iris abandoned to the foster care system – as Christy-Lynn once was – is unbearable. But she’s spent her whole life running – determined never to be hurt again. Will she finally stand still long enough to open herself up to forgiveness and love?
