Nolie Lang learned at an early age that animals wouldn' t let her down like people did. Her farm was a haven for abandoned animals– and a source of hope for the disabled. But now, to get a crucial grant, Nolie had to work with the most stubborn man she' d ever met, injured firefighter Gabriel Flanagan.

But his injury had convinced Gabe he had nothing to offer Nolie. Could God now make Gabe see he' d always be a hero in her heart?
