Summary Kelsey Mitchell’s dreams of happily ever after were washed away when her emotionally-abusive husband succumbed to the pride of his religious illusions and abandoned his family. Years later, raising two kids alone in the beachside community of Santa Cruz, Kelsey’s faith is again tested when her daughter’s life is in jeopardy. Now, she must make a choice to drown under the weight of her past or resurface triumphantly in the faith and hope she left behind. Alex Bechtel traded his successful CPA business for his first love: Pastoring a small church in a quaint seaside village. But when he discovers the church is long on rules and short on compassion, he must question his decisions and his own definition of faith. Can two people with troubled pasts find hope and love in one another? Or is Swimming to the Surface worth the effort?
