Despite Sam Mackenzie's deep-rooted belief that marriage can turn two loving people into monsters, his all-encompassing love for Emma Jordan spurs him to propose before leaving the country bound for Valselo, the Adriatic village where millions believe the Mother of God speaks to three visionaries.
Despite Emma's love for Sam, she is unable to envision a life in a remote town on a distant continent. Emma refuses his proposal and spends the next three years making a life without Sam. When she's left at the altar, a loving conspiracy between her parents and parish priest-Sam's uncle-brings Emma to Valselo and an inevitable reunion with Sam. God seems to be orchestrating a second chance, but both believe they have had good reasons to turn away from God's guidance. Will they listen to Our Lady's messages which call humanity to open their hearts to God's mercy and love? Or will they lose each other a second and final time?
Emma’s world is destroyed twice in three years—once when Sam leaves and again when Jonathan leaves her standing at the altar. When she is talked into attending a religious pilgrimage to the very place Sam left her for, she goes reluctantly—on the condition she can avoid Sam, the one man she still loves after all this time. On arrival she realises she can’t escape her past after all as Sam is waiting at the airport.
This short story by K.M. Daughters is as enthralling and enchanting as all their others as both Sam and Emma learn to put what God wants first, faith and love really do go hand in hand.
