The 'Love Lifted Me' storyline follows Jade Benson, also the heroine of Sara's first two novels, 'The Sweet By and By' and 'Softly and Tenderly.' After finding out her husband, Max, cheated on her with her best friend, Jade is suddenly a full-time stepmom after they gain custody of the little boy believed to be Max's, as a result of the affair. In the adjustment period, during which her husband is also offered a high school football coaching job in Texas, Jade discovers another painful secret. She overcomes these hardships through love and faith, with Christian themes running through the book, as in Sara's previous novels.
