A fan-favorite story of heartbreak, hope and the incredible power of female friendship from New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas.

Randi Howard, Anna Montano, Meredith Allen, Helena Whitworth and Crystal Howard have absolutely nothing in common apart from their husbands' work. They are all married to men who live to search for "black gold," men who are willing to exchange backbreaking work and long days for danger and excitement—and money. But on a blistering day in early autumn, a fiery explosion on a West Texas oil rig changes everything.

In one brief moment, tragedy binds Randi, Anna, Meredith, Helena and Crystal closer together than they ever thought possible. As they gather at the hospital, waiting to learn who among them will have to bury her husband, they turn to one another for support. And so begins a journey of faith, of strength, of courage and of love.
