April's Storm (Book 2)
April's Storm (Second Chance Book 2) A story of marriage restoration. A storm is brewing in the parsonage!

April Gray dreams of having children and a great marriage. But Chad, her husband of nearly two years, is hyper-focused on his ministry as a pastor in Ketchikan, Alaska. He believes he should be on call, available to his congregation, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Something April strongly disagrees with. She begs him to take time off. To go away with her so they can reconnect. But he has sermons to prepare. People to visit. He's busy, and he expects her to understand.

And she tries. But when a female parishioner gets too close and clingy with Chad, April thinks the worst, and a battle line is drawn. Things must change!

What will it take for them to get through their marital storms, and to rediscover the love that brought them together in the first place?

"Good fiction distilled from real life - a book well worth reading!" ~Kathy Vancil, missionary pastor's wife
