Goodreads: To face the future, a woman must let go of the past. . . .
Returning to her childhood home in the golden hills of Northern California means regret and pain for Karla Esterbrook. Yet she can’t refuse when her ailing grandmother, Anna, asks her to help settle her affairs. After all, Anna raised Karla and her younger sisters after their parents’ death twenty years before. But from the beginning a powerful clash of wills separated Karla and her grandmother, leaving them both bitter and angry.
Little does Karla know that a very determined Anna will do everything in her power to bridge the chasm between them. But can the wounds of the past truly be healed? For Karla, opening her heart could lead to more hurt—or perhaps to reconciliation . . . and a love the likes of which she has never known.
Ope’s Opinion: This is my February book off Kristin’s of Kritters Ramblings bookshelf.
If you haven’t read Georgia Bockoven before this would be a great place to start. This story is very heartwarming. When you start reading you will immediately have a connection with the characters.
This story reminds me to enjoy and cherish my time with my girls. Having traditions and making memories to pass down to the next generation is important. I did have a few tears while reading since I have lost my mom. This story is not morbid or even sad – it is more hopeful.
I will be reading more Georgia Bockoven’s books.
Rating: Five Chairs – This book is so good it will be passed on and on and on…..
