When love makes life complicated….
Sports teacher Fraser Maclean has worked with Sarah Browne for eight months at their Edinburgh high school. She’s single, not involved with anyone else, and she seems to enjoy his company, so he can’t figure out why the pretty trainee teacher refuses to date him. Despite their attraction, he has to take no for an answer. Besides, he wants a simple, uncomplicated life, and he suspects Sarah is far from uncomplicated.
Sarah’s worked hard to control her feelings for Fraser and keep him at arm’s length. He’s kind, athletic, funny, and he appeals to her like no other man, but she can’t trust he’ll love her enough to share her burdens and stick around when things get tough. They’re safer staying friends. That’s enough. It has to be.
When they work together building a sensory garden at their church, he discovers the secret she’s been hiding, the real reason she won’t date. Caring for her ill mother dominates Sarah’s days and nights. Getting involved with her means things will get a whole lot complicated. No more simple single life. And Sarah still won’t trust him with her biggest secret of all.
Can the two teachers learn God’s lessons in love, or will fear and doubt keep them apart?
