Life is what happens when you lose the script.

Ruby's new life in Marin County isn't as easy as she envisioned, and her hometown keeps drawing her back. Marin High School is a place for the rich and famous with their BMWs and chic clothes ˆ a place she clearly doesn't belong. Even with her new job at the Underground Coffeehouse and Cinema, Ruby feels insecure. Back home, her not-so-secret crush finally likes her. Her older brother decides to stay behind with their newly married father. And her best friend starts dating a guy who's all wrong for her. When Ruby joins an amateur film group the puzzle pieces start to fit. And then she meets Kaden, the brooding film guy intent on messing with her heart. Could he be the missing piece?

Bestselling author Cindy Martinusen-Coloma has written six novels including Orchid House, Eventide, and Winter Passing, a Christy Award finalist. The Salt Garden was chosen by Library Journal for their list of "Best Books of 2004."

A Passion for Dance

Gilly Kincade is a rising star on the New York ballet scene. Dancing is her life's passion, second only to her love for Jesus, and she believes her faith sets her apart--but hasn't held her back. Chosen for a plum role in a new ballet choreographed for her, it seems the sky's the limit. Then she meets Jacob Ferrar....

A Passion for God

Jacob Ferrar has left behind the glittering temptations of stardom in New York ballet. He has established a reputation as a brilliant, innovative artistic director of a regional dance company in Alabama, with a vision for choreography that glorifies God and encourages the audience. In fact, he's certain nothing could make him go back....

Becomes Love's Tour de Force

When Jacob offers Gilly the lead in his original Easter ballet, she begins to reevaluate what she's willing to sacrifice for dance. And he sees exciting potential of shining light on the world's dark stage. But their brilliant first performance is destroyed by a terrible accident, and Gilly and Jacob find themselves facing an uncertain future. Together, they dance the fine line between personal vision and God's will, listening for the beat of the Father's heart.

Romantic Times BookClub says:
"White takes readers behind the scenes into the competitive dance world. It's refreshing that Gillian befriends and respects people living different lifestyles while still boldly living out her faith." (4 stars)
