Both believe they are followers of Christ who know God. So why is their marriage so difficult? After years of struggle, they wonder if it’s all been for nothing. Then, on an anniversary trip to a remote resort, their truck hurtles down the side of a mountain.

But both must surrender their last defenses if they are to come home at last—to God and to each other. Can the Romans overcome their greatest obstacle—themselves—in time?
Tara is the best-known and most beloved feminine deity of Buddhism. Having famously vowed to help others while always remaining in the female form, Tara is traditionally called a mother, a virgin, and a queen. Like a mother, she provides unconditional love.
Like a virgin, she is whole and complete unto herself. Like a queen, she is noble and generous. Containing a 96-page book, a white Tara resin figure, and a keepsake box, The Tara Box opens to create a mini-altar and portable shrine for the exquisitely carved Tara statuette. The altar can be used in conjunction with the book's rituals and meditation practices, which are aimed at compassionate healing, long life, and protection from life's travails. The book — which slides snugly behind the altar for easy reference — explains who Tara is and how to reach out to her. This unique gift set is for those interested in healing, ritual magic, women's empowerment, Buddhism, and exotic Asian art.
