Item Description...
Overview
Enjoying her job as a school counselor and her secret engagement to co-worker Charlie, Lydia discovers a young sophomore's devastating secret and is forced to confront everything she believes about strength, love, and her faith. Reprint.

Publishers Description
Lydia Porter has waited a long time for happiness. She loves her job as a school counselor at Shadrach High School, and she loves everything about her coworker, teacher Charlie Stains. Lydia believes God answered her prayers when Charlie entered her life, and though she hasn't told a soul, Charlie has asked her to marry him.
That's what makes one pretty, young sophomore's story so unimaginable . . . and so devastating. The girl tells Lydia that Charlie has sexually abused her, and that she is terrified of what he will do if she tells. By law, Lydia must report the teenager's charges. What happens when she does will test her strength, her love, and her belief in the power of God to comfort, redeem, and heal.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a "tugger"  Feb 8, 2009
Someone has said that a truly good book evokes some sort of emotional response from the reader. When You Believe certainly did that during the two days I read this book. I experienced frustration with the characters, anger, hope, sorrow, disbelief and more.
Overall, I found the book to be well-written. However, I felt the detailed accounts of the homecoming preparations and game were a bit irrelevant and overdone. Much of the details added little or nothing to the plot.
Lydia, as a young high-school counselor, made several mistakes in her investigations of Shelby's story of sexual abuse, the first and foremost was pressing for Shelby to name the guilty party. On a realistic, "today" level, it would be dangerous and suspect for a teacher to allow herself to be alone and so personally involved out of school with a student in this situation.
My biggest disappointment was Lydia's treatment of Charlie, and if I were him, I'd not have given her a second chance!
In the end, as they say, all's well that ends well. Bedford did a good job of covering the identity of the real abuser until near the end of the book.
For teachers, like myself, this book is one that tugs at the heart.
 
One of the best books of the year!  Feb 19, 2004
This is a moving, superb keeper of a book. The subject matter is daring, the characters truly special, and the question of who's telling the truth--Shelby or Charlie--will keep you turning pages 'til dawn. Best of all, the writing is simply stunning. It's rare these days to find an author of popular fiction--whether in the ABA or CBA market--who has such an exquisite eye for detail and a genuine love of the English language. With every page, Ms. Bedford brings her setting and characters to vibrant life. You'll feel as if you're standing beside them in their struggles, discovering God's grace at the most unexpected moments. Don't miss this book.
 
Good reading here...  Sep 30, 2003
Sometimes, you don't want the answers to your questions, as Lydia Porter learns when she pushes troubled student Shelby Tatum to tell her what's wrong. Shelby reveals that she has been violated by a teacher, and not just any teacher. The man who hurt her is Lydia's fiance', Charlie Stains. Suddenly, Lydia is caught in a nightmare between doing what is right and standing beside the man she loves, despite accusations. Desperation and prayer will lead her on a quest for the truth that will either set her free or damn her hopes.

**** This timely plotline has much to say about faith and love. Lies that seem preferrable to truth are their own trap. Christian fiction gets slammed for being too goody two shoes feel good and fuzzy. In other words, having little to do with reality. Novels like this one shatter that myth. ****
