Hollow Places (Paperback)
The church left her scarred. His faith saved his life. Can a woman angry at God find love in the arms of a pastor?
As a former foster-child-turned-advocate, Alli Johnson has built her identity around helping foster kids navigate the system she grew up in. But when one of her clients is placed at a religious group home, she's forced to face the trauma that robbed her of her sense of self. And a too-hot pastor who sees past her defenses.
Delivered from years of pent-up rage, youth pastor David Porter wants to help others find the sense of peace God's given him-especially the hurting seven-year-old and his spirited social worker. But he's out of his depth with one, and dangerously attracted to the other.
As Alli and David's mutual concern for the boy draws them together, their differences-in background, perspective, and faith-tear them apart. Each has a past full of horror. Both will learn that when pain devours a soul, it takes a limitless love to heal the hollow places left behind.
