FEATURED by @PsychologicalNovel @NA @booksgottalent and @newadultreads Aspen Watkins grew up in a devout Christian family, despite not believing herself. When she falls pregnant at eighteen by her boyfriend, Joel, they are forced to wed by her family so they can atone for their sin. Two years later, Joel is taken ill. Aspen soon learns that he's been lying to her since they met - he actually has a life-limiting condition. She quickly learns that it's not just Joel that the disease affects and the sins they thought they'd atoned for come back to haunt them both. Aspen finds an empathetic ear in the form of her husband's nurse, Nicholas Knight, who also had a surprising link to her life. He has her questioning everything she ever knew and helps her separate her past from her present. When tragedy strikes, Aspen learns that in order to move on, she needs to shake off the shackles of her past and find a new meaning of life after loss along with a new family who accept her for who she is.
