They were buddies, not sweethearts…
In 1958, the job of an airline stewardess beckons Joyce Williams with its offer of travel and mobility. Being a stewardess would be her escape route from a boring life in her small hometown in East Tennessee. She would only return to her hometown if her best friend Wayne Mahan lived there instead of in Nashville—until she receives an invitation to her ten-year high school reunion.
At the reunion when Wayne tells Joyce he’s always loved her, she fears he’s doomed their childhood friendship. Wayne must persuade her that God’s timing has finally brought them together as He planned.
A charming story of enduring friendship and genuine devotion. You will root equally for Joyce and Wayne!
