Vanessa's heart does a funny flip-flop when a father and son with matching soulful brown eyes appear at the counter of her pet store. Soon she and the puppy she is training as a guide dog are spending time - a lot of time - with Nathan and Jeff and their new Labrador retriever, Lick. Nathan's already loved and lost. Bad enough, he lost his wife, but in his grief, he's also given up on faith. He's not in the market for anything more than a few lessons on how to make Lick obey. Where will Vanessa find the patience to let God work in both their hearts so that they are ready to face the future together?
