This book is mainly about Ruby, and Tom. Ruby and Tom have a past, they were in the same facility together. A great deal happened there over a period of several years. Now suddenly Tom is back in Ruby's world, but Ruby isn't the same as she use to be. She has wondered away from God. She is a very good doctor now but so very very much from her past isn't healed or dealt with yet.
Tom coming back into Ruby's world at the same time that her job, her clinic for street kids and their families, and the new wing of the hospital are all collapsing on her. Some folks aren't so sure if Tom isn't causing Ruby more problems, he certainly is complicating things with Ben. Lilah is Ruby's friend, but also her employee and her son is in trouble and some days it just seems that the whole world is out to crush Ruby and that God left long ago.
This book was really good! Ruby Dawn has action, romance, gangs, criminals, law officials, hospitals and people in real life crisis's drawing closer to God and His plan for their lives. If I get another change to read another book by Raquel Byrnes I will and see if her other books are as good as this one.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Former street kid, Ruby now reaches out to runaways through her medical clinic in the worst part of the city, but her escalating battle with a gang leader puts that in jeopardy.
Cavalier, a risk-taker, charming… Ruby’s first love is now on the right side of the law and the center of a dangerous DEA sting involving her clinic. Tom’s disappearance ten years ago broke her heart and rattled her faith. As their romance relights, memories of what it costs to love him flood her with fear.
Ruby’s battle with the gang ignites a firestorm of danger, and a pattern of lies from within her own camp emerges. With Tom’s life in the balance and her world cast in shadows, can Ruby trust God as she once did…or has she strayed too far, for too long to ever return?
