Ashley Showalter and Ben Henning met on Ashley's horse rescue farm, and they quickly discovered how much they have in common. They were both raised by single moms, both went to help where they saw a need, and both work with horses in the Boise valley. When Ben starts an equine therapy barn on his great-great-grandfather's farm, he needs Ashley's help. The more time they spend together, they more they get the feeling that something more could be developing between them.
They both have past experiences they feel may drive them apart if the truth is ever exposed. Ben is a recovering alcoholic with five years of sobriety behind him, and Ashley's brother is an opioid addict living in court-ordered rehab. Ashley's experiences lead her to believe addicts can never be cured, and she promised herself she will never knowingly walk into the chaos created by addiction. Be knows all things are possible with God, but will Ashley ever find it within herself to give love a chance, or will her brother's mistakes and the pain of her past sabotage her future with Ben?
Cross My Heart connects a contemporary love story with the heartwarming tale of Ben's great-great-grandfather, Andrew Henning, reminding us that God’s Word is timeless and that His promises are new every morning.
