Her Rescue Might Be the Miracle They Needed Things like this don’t happen in Beck County. Deputy Benjamin Patil is the one to find the infant girl, hours old, abandoned in a field. As police work to identify the mother, Ben and his wife, Abbi, seem like the obvious couple to serve as foster parents. But the newborn’s arrival opens old wounds for Abbi and shines a harsh light on how much Ben has changed since a devastating military tour. Their marriage teeters on the brink and now they must choose to reclaim what they once had or lose each other forever.
Deputy Benjamin Patil has recently returned from a military tour, minus a few toes, and survivors’ guilt. Because of his troubles, his marriage has begun to crumble. His wife, Abbi, is at her wits end and no longer knows if she can continue with Ben. When the Deputy finds an abandoned baby, just a few hours old, in an open field he immediately bonds with her. He and his wife Abbi decide to take her in while the case is worked and the police try to find her mother.
There is another story entwined with this one; a story of a deaf teenage boy with serious kidney problems and is in need of a kidney transplant. When his mother gives him up he lives with his worthless Aunt and her 4 daughters. He becomes involved with the Patils and finds what he has been looking for.
The author of this book does an excellent job of drawing you in emotionally and you really start to feel for the characters. This is a touching story centered on faith in God and how He can take the worst circumstances and turn them into blessings. This book is different than most Christian fiction books that I have read, but in a good way. It’s not overly sappy or unrealistic. The characters are average people with everyday problems.
