About the Author
DEBORAH RANEY's first novel, A Vow to Cherish, inspired the World Wide Pictures film of the same title and launched Deb’s writing career. Twenty years and thirty books later, she's still creating stories that touch hearts and lives. Her novels have won the RITA Award, the Carol Award, the HOLT Medallion, National Readers’ Choice Award, and have three times been Christy Award finalists. She and husband, Ken Raney, recently traded small-town life in Kansas for life in the city of Wichita. They love traveling to visit four grown children and a growing brood of grandchildren who all live much too far away.

Some situations, like adult daughter Kara's reaction and some of Anna's choices, were a stretch, but overall this was an honest look at how difficult it can be sometimes to truly follow our God. I just wish there were more prayers along the way.
As for the writing, editing, plot, and character development, it is all well done. The content is clean. Due to the subject matter, this is not a book for children, but is appropriate for teens and adults with the necessary maturity.
The beating and rape are described without explicit details, but are still likely to be a trigger for people who have been through a similar trauma.
Overall, this is a book well worth reading, filled with all the light needed to balance the trauma and the stuggles Anna and her family go through. It reminds us that despite great sorrow, joy remains, and peace.
