When You Believe, by Deborah Bedford

Regular price $3.99

Lydia Porter has waited a long time for happiness. She loves her job as a school counselor at Shadrach High School, and she loves everything about her coworker, teacher Charlie Stains. Lydia believes God answered her prayers when Charlie entered her life, and though she hasn't told a soul, Charlie has asked her to marry him.
That's what makes one pretty, young sophomore's story so unimaginable . . . and so devastating. The girl tells Lydia that Charlie has sexually abused her, and that she is terrified of what he will do if she tells. By law, Lydia must report the teenager's charges. What happens when she does will test her strength, her love, and her belief in the power of God to comfort, redeem, and heal.
