As their friendship deepens, however, Melanie is troubled by something she can't quite understand or explain. Joel seems to be hiding something-in fact, most areas of his past are off-limits, even to her. Because of her growing feelings for him, Melanie pushes her doubts away. But when unsettling facts come to light-and when Joel disappears, along with the contents of a church bank account-she can no longer ignore her fears.
Now, torn between her feelings for Joel and evidence mounting against him, Melanie faces a heart-wrenching decision: to forget the man who gave her reason to love again or to trust Joel enough to give him her heart.
Exploring the themes of the importance of truth, loyalty, and trust, "A Scarlet Cord" illustrates that who we are in Christ depends little on outward appearances and much on our relationship with him, and that through faith, we can find places of comfort, healing, and selfless love.

Her first novel, A Vow to Cherish, inspired the World Wide Pictures film of the same title. Deb and her husband, Ken Raney, enjoy small-town life in Kansas. They are new empty nesters with four grown children and two grandsons, all of whom live much too far away.
