“Don’t bury yourself in that wilderness!” her relatives say. “Even though you’re a widow, you’re still young.”

No matter what they think, Madeleine decides to go. She’ll help her aunt restore the old house; she’ll sign up for an online baking course; and she’ll bury—yes, bury—those terrible memories. “From now on,” she tells herself, “I’m going to be strong and independent.”

Her plan seems to be working, except for the panic attacks, until she has to deflect the attentions of two men.

The doctor, who has a fire-scarred past, is not upset by her panic attacks and knows he can help her to heal. The writer, who conceals more than one secret, admires her spirit and is certain that she needs him.

God uses both men and her father’s gift of a floral paperweight to remind her of His enduring “forever love,” and as she yields to Him, she finds the courage to take a new and challenging path.

Fifteen years ago, Shawn Johnson was a suicidal drug abuser working in Hollywood. He wondered if God could ever be a part of his broken life. To his surprise, finding God was not that difficult. But, growing closer to Him was another story. Three weeks after giving his life to God, he relapsed, and almost over-dosed. He wanted to be closer to God, but he just had no idea how to get there. As a result, his faith eventually floundered. He didn’t know what steps he should be taking to move closer to God. Embracing spiritual disciplines such as prayer, Bible study, healthy relationships, sharing his testimony, serving, and giving was a foreign concept to him; and therefore, out of reach. Shawn’s hope is that Transit can keep people from losing faith in God today, the way he did then.
