Pastor Jim Black is excited.  The most anticipated week of his year is quickly approaching – a week of hunting with his best friends in Pennsylvania. Jim, his favorite cousin Andrea, and her husband George are all packed and ready to go, that is, until Susan Handley, Andrea's old college roommate, unexpectedly shows up with her baggage full of emotional needs and looking for help just as the trip is about to begin.

Susan, having unexpectedly lost her husband two years ago, is struggling with depression and anger at God, unable to move beyond her grief. Jim doesn't think things can get worse until Andrea invites this troubled city girl to join them on their week of hunting and fun.  Will this unexpected guest threaten to spoil the whole week or will her presence be the key to making this the best year ever?  Readers are about to find out as they accompany the characters in this weeklong adventure, fun, and perhaps romance.
