Goodreads: Jenny Lucas swore she’d never go home again. But being told you’re dying has a way of changing things. Years after she left, she and her five-year-old daughter, Isabella, must return to her sleepy North Carolina town to face the ghosts she left behind. They welcome her in the form of her oxygen tank-toting grandmother, her stoic and distant father, and David, Isabella’s dad . . . Who doesn’t yet know he has a daughter. As Jenny navigates the rough and unknown waters of her new reality, the unforgettable story that unfolds is a testament to the power of love and its ability to change everything–to heal old hurts, bring new beginnings . . . Even overcome the impossible. A stunning debut about love and loss from a talented new voice.
Ope’s Opinion: Be sure to have some tissues near by before you start this book. It will surely make you cry and warm your heart at the same time. The mother’s love in this book is like no other love.
This is the best kind of Christian Fiction – the characters are definitely centered on God, but they have real lives and no one is preaching at you. If you have never Christian Fiction before and aren’t sure about it – pick this one up.
Now I want to go read my other book by Gina Holmes that is on my book shelf.
