In the beautiful north Georgia mountains, blue spruce trees reach up to heaven. A sense of healing and communion draws Alisha Emerson there. She hopes that her unborn child can grow up in the promising new world she's begun for them both in the village of Dover Mountain. A man who lives without hope and without God, Jared Murdock feels that his life is a complete disaster as he faces the prospect of financial ruin. In an attempt to escape his demons, Jared takes off in his car, only to have it break down in Dover Mountain, where he helps Alisha deliver her son safely. As Jared warms up to the small town, he gets involved in the lives of those around him, knowing that this supposedly simpler life is one of love, truth, devotion and God. At least, that's what Alisha tells him. But is Dover Mountain really the sylvan sanctuary of Alisha's daydreams? For although she and Jared appreciate the love of God and neighbor that village life embodies, it incorporates darker elements, as well. Elements like unwanted pregnancy, drug abuse, violence and blackmail. Together Alisha and Jared must brave the storm and seek the rainbow that follows, in this captivating story of love, loss and faith regained.
