Within This Circle

I'm excited to tell you about this new release! My fabulous writing partner and dear friend, Deborah Raney, has written a captivating story about two couples, in different seasons of life, who are drawn together through dire circumstances and through their love of a child. Within This Circle is a powerful story of forgiveness that weaves a beautiful truth about what's most important in this life.

Deb's first novel, A Vow to Cherish, inspired the World Wide Pictures film of the same title (check it out here). Great movie!

Within This Circle continues the story of John Brighton and Julia Sinclair (who we met in A Vow to Cherish). After a tumultuous courtship, John and Julia Brighton have a second chance at happiness, a fresh marriage and, now that their children are grown, a new era in their lives to revel in the promise of the future. Only such a promise is never guaranteed. And life can change in a heartbeat.


The Brighton's life is turned upside down when John's daughter, Jana, abandons her husband Mark and three-year-old daughter. As Jana struggles through delayed grief over her mother's death, her actions put her marriage and her own daughter in danger. John and Julia reach out to little Ellie, to give the young couple time to heal, but the little girl is confused and longing for her mother. How much sorrow and stress can both fledgling marriages endure? Two very different couples, with only love and faith to guide them, can only pray it will be enough.

Both
Within This Circle, along with A Vow to Cherish, are released in mass market format and will make a beautiful book duo for your favorite reader this Christmas. Order Within This Circle and Deborah's other books here.
