Madeline (Mollie), widowed, feels broken and unable to love or trust again. She flees the legally shady, shallow, dysfuncional presence of her mother and the pressure of family to remarry after her husband's death--a tragedy for which she is grateful? She flees to stay with a paternal aunt to help restore an old mansion and develop a plan to become strong again and independent. The aunt while providing a place where Mollie can deal with grief and get her head together, flits in and out as Mollie and crew clean and restore room after room. In the community Mollie encounters secret upon secret, broken families, broken parents, broken children and animals--all of whom seem to find their way into Mollie's heart and some into her home. Even a "snake" got into the house, but you will have read to the end to find how he was "smoked out!" In the process of helping others she not only becomes an instrument of healing but at the same time finds love and healing herself.
At one point I wished I could see how much of the book remained. I wanted the sad, horrid happenings to stop but they kept going on and on! Yet, I could not put the book down! I thought the depiction very believable. Some people's lives do seem to keep going from one horrible event to another! Repp did a masterful job in depicting teen responses to emotional and physical abuse, post-traumatic stress and the grief process. I also appreciated the strength, wisdom and faith of Timothy -- and that God's "forever love" won the day!
I would heartily recommend this book. Good characters, good development and never preachy. The story was gripping. I think anyone who reads would enjoy it.
I received this book in a free kindle promotional without expectation of a positive review or any review.
Ms. Repp is a masterful storyteller and demonstrates an understanding of the deeper issues and consequences of major life devastations. She handles the faith component with grace and gentleness--not superficially and simplistic--but with a childlike trust as a beginning to the healing process. I highly recommend this book.
Madeline/ “Mollie” is just trying to run away from memories of disturbing abuse from her now-deceased husband and the death of her greatly loved father. Escaping to Jersey pine country to help her aunt refurbish an old house full of junk and antiques seems like a perfect place to hide and maybe start over. She figures she’ll spend her days inventorying glassware and cooking for assorted workers (a lot of cooking in this book. Foodies will love it.). When tangled threads of mystery and suspense combine to push her out of her comfort zone, Mollie discovers the empowering love of her forever-God—and the love of a man patient enough to help her heal.
This piece was an unhurried, beautiful look at the real ways God can strengthen us. I often felt myself moved to tears at the sincerity of the prayers uttered by characters. They were not fancy or eloquent or preachy—they just hit the center of a heart in search of hope. Many scenes have stayed with me now, several days after “closing” the kindle, and I have a feeling this will be a book I remember for a long time to come.
Zero swearing or sex, but there are references to and threats of sexual assault that some readers might find troubling. Everything is handled very tastefully
