From the Inside Flap
At twenty-seven, it feels silly to admit that my biggest fear in life is getting a certain phone call. You know the kind I mean--where someone announces they've arranged for your family to be on one of those hideous daytime television talk shows. Screaming, yelling, family secrets upchucked for all the viewers to see. What's worse, our family is a trash TV dream-come-true.
I would like to tell you I've exaggerated, but I can't. As the oldest of three girls, I've long been the headmistress in our strange house of secrets...
Bailee Cooper is at a crossroads, unable to turn back. Forced to face a past fraught with painful memories, will she find the courage to seek the truth...and open her heart to a future where she can find healing, forgiveness, and love?

Determined to win Bailee's affection, Mark becomes a strong fortress for her in this time of confusion, and what was once a tentative promise begins to take root and grow. Caught between the past and an uncertain future, can Bailee let God guide her to healing...or will she risk losing the chance to embrace love?
