In the midst of this crisis, the truth is clear for all of them—never in their lives has family been more important.

When Katy Hart travels to Los Angeles to testify against the knife-wielding fan who tried to kill her, she is hunted by paparazzi who quickly realize she is the mystery woman photographed with movie star Dayne Matthews.

In the end, Dayne's celebrity life makes Katy certain that a future with him is all but impossible.

Ultimately, his journey leads him to an isolated beach where God makes Dayne's future as clear as the waters of Cancún. But can he live with the decision God places before him?
