The Runaway Pastor's Wife

What could possibly drive a pastor's wife

 to run away from home?


After years of frustration from life in a church fishbowl, Annie McGregor walks away from it all and boards a plane for Colorado. Leaving behind only a note to her husband, she escapes on a personal retreat to a remote cabin high in the Rockies. There, in a rustic hideaway on loan from her best friend from college, Annie hopes to plow through her confusion, doubts, and gnawing resentments to face God—one on one.


Annie has no way of knowing that far away in Houston, Texas her college sweetheart is in serious trouble. Michael Dean, former Major Leaguer with the Astros, has forced an explosive showdown with his father-in-law, powerful U.S. Congressman Elliot Thomas. Terrified and gravely wounded, Michael must find a place to disappear if he’s going to survive. During his desperate escape from danger, a simple, chance encounter snaps a memory from college days long ago. A cabin in Colorado. Perfect.


Their unexpected reunion couldn't have come at a worse time. Or could it? Bewildered that God would allow Michael Dean to walk back into her life, Annie pleads with Him to keep her heart true to her family and marriage vows. God answers her prayer, but in a way she would never expect.
