More About What Dreams May Die

Is this chance reunion a bizarre fluke or an act of providence? And does it make any difference? 

She’s a full-time missionary. 

He’s working at a Christian ministry thousands of miles away. 

Will a summer reunion kindle old flames or bury them both in painful memories? 

When Megan flies out to Orchard Grove, Washington, her only goal is to connect with her brother and his pregnant wife. The last thing she needs is a chance meeting with the man who broke her heart years ago after she left the States to become a full-time missionary. 

Brad’s taking his summer off from teaching to care for his elderly grandmother. He’s looking forward to some time away from his intense ministry at a home for troubled teens. 

What he’s not expecting is to run into Megan, the woman he fell so hard for many years ago. The woman who left him to follow God’s call to the mission field. 

The woman he can’t get over no matter how hard he tries. 

What Dreams May Die is a heart-touching, inspirational story about two Christians who have devoted their lives to serving others and are about to find out that God’s plans for his children are far more glorious than anything we could ask or imagine.

More About Step with Me

The desperate jilted man…

Sebastian Langston cannot believe that his ex-fiancée would leave him again. They’ve broken up so many times that he doesn’t think much about it until he sees Talia with a billionaire. Now he wants her back.

The restaurateur cooks up an idea in which he hires a beautiful girl who can make Talia jealous. His sister tells him it’s a very bad idea, but Sebastian doesn’t listen. He figures that poor starving harpist Emmeline O’Hanlon needs money and is willing to help him reach his objectives.

“It’s past time for Talia to make the right decision. I don’t want to wait forever. I want a big wedding, a long honeymoon, and a house full of kids. What? Why can’t I nudge her in the right direction? Yeah, I know she’s already dumped me and moved on with whatshisname, but an ex can dream, can’t I?”

— Sebastian Langston, owner of Saffron on Jekyll restaurant and Sage Café on St. Simon’s Island

The dreamy rent-a-girlfriend…

When her best friend’s older brother asks her if she wants a summer job, harpist Emmeline O’Hanlon has no idea what she is getting into. However, her van dies, her rent is due, and she is forced to take the job.

The short-term business agreement would only last one summer, or so Emmeline thinks. More than money for music school, she needs Sebastian’s funding to search for her long-lost brother. Sebastian is enlisting one of the top private investigators in the region to find Claude. In return, all she has to do is smile and make Talia jealous. How hard can it be?

“He says all I have to do is go out with him to be visible enough for her. He gets her back, I find my brother, and I go to grad school. A win-win. Yeah, he’s cute and has a kind heart. And she doesn’t deserve him. Oh, did I just say that?”

— Emmeline O’Hanlon, harpist and music librarian of the Sea Islands Symphony Orchestra

The duet that can’t go wrong…

So it begins, this ill-advised scheme to drive his commitment-phobic ex-fiancée to the altar. Sebastian thinks his plan-on-a-whim would succeed because it has to. He will turn thirty-four next September and he wants to be a father by the following summer, preferably to a passel of Talia’s future children.

As they keep up the ruse, Emmeline’s ethereal harp starts to sound like siren songs that distract Sebastian from his goals. Pretty soon, he’s rowing away from his lane and begins to forget his original purpose for hiring her…
