Publication Date: January 28, 2014

One bad play brought London Whitfield’s brief professional football career to a devastating end. Back at home and reluctantly living life as an average Joe, London reconnects with the one girl, Daphne, who represents the best and the worst relationship he ever experienced. He takes the high road, trying to make things right with Daphne, but will he leave her hanging when the opportunity to “be somebody” presents itself again? 

Though Daphne’s gospel singing career keeps her busy, she realizes that her melodious voice is only a platform for the painful testimony burning in her heart. She hoped a casual meeting with London would bring much-needed emotional closure. His presence, however, only rekindles a love that was never completely forgotten. But converting her misery into ministry may jeopardize London’s opportunity for the post-NFL limelight, not to mention their second chance at love. 

Amidst a backdrop of well-meaning but sometimes misguided friends, family, and advisors, London and Daphne wonder if the best way to move forward is to clean up what they messed up…or leave their messy past behind. 

Written by national bestselling Christian fiction author Michelle Stimpson, this novella raises poignant questions for younger and older readers that will reignite hope in the ONE TRUE love.
