Don't talk to Claire Jenkins about how tough things can be. She's had a front row seat experiencing the cruelties of life, literally from the moment of her birth. Just leave her alone, stay out of her way, and, don't offer her any sympathy or charity. She may be living on the edge, but she can take care of herself, thank you very much. But even the most seasoned survivor does have a breaking point . Paul has a past that is as bleak as a burned out forest. And a skeleton in his closet that's the size of Mount Rushmore. He knows that the only person to get him out of this mess is the same one that got him there in the first place: himself. For Claire, her rules of survival, accumulated through her very own blood, sweat, and tears are not working. What's a desperate woman to do? Perhaps, she may just have to throw out those old rules of survival and come up with a few new ones. Rules that are rooted in trust, love, and faith .
