Ann Ballard’s husband, Gene, has to be dead. After seven years of no word, no clues, she is more than ready to get her stagnant life flowing again in a positive direction. When former neighbor Mark Roth, now a respected attorney, shows up and wants to help with the legal aspects, she wonders if she can accept his attractive offer.
Mark has loved Ann forever. She was the only one who supported him when his own family was unavailable. Through gentle wooing, Mark convinces Ann that his dream of happiness for them can come true. Together they face disapproving family members and the legal maneuverings of Gene’s elite family. In a bizarre twist of fate, Ann learns what happened to her husband. How can she tell the truth when it may ruin more lives--hers included?
Just when Ann and Mark overcome the last hurdle, their lives hit the hardest rock of all. Now it's Mark's turn to be truthful to Ann, himself, and the faith he professes.

"Lisa Lickel’s Meander Scar challenges us to rethink our ideas of love–to venture past the superficial so that we can focus on the heart, regardless of its packaging. This novel has a little bit of everything: conspiracy, a glimpse of high-society, romance, hatred, passion, mercy–practically the entire gamut of human emotions all wrapped up in about two hundred and thirty pages...Lisa Lickel turns our ideas of 'Romeo and Juliet Romances' on their ears in a story that will keep you turning the pages long into the night."
--Christian Book Reviews
"I truly loved and appreciated this book. Every bit of it -- story, plot, writing, setting, and characters! Everything about it was unique."
--Shawna K. Williams on The New Book Review as blogged by Carolyn Howard-Johnson
Lisa’s book has got to be one of the most tender, touching, romantic love stories I’ve ever read. The intensity of the characters’ feelings and relationships are intricately developed and oh so real-to-life, warts and all. That intensity follows through to the very end of the book...A great read!"
