They both show up...and with surprises of their own. Teresa, a successful opera singer, brings her latest protégé, Irina, and Melanie brings along secrets about Teresa and the identity of Aralyn's long-gone father.The strong personalities cause some big waves, and Aralyn is in over her head. Soon she is drawn to the faith of Irina and Irina's charming brother, Grigori, and to their story of being adopted as children from a Russian orphanage by a Christian couple from America.Readers will love being a guest alongside these characters. Between each sunrise and sunset is another day for healing, laughter, rediscovering the importance of family, and embracing the hope of God's care.
