From the Back Cover
And what happens when that burden becomes almost too much to bear?
For decades, Perla Phillips has hidden the truth of a decision that still fills her with guilt. But now, seeing her granddaughter, Ella, struggle in a similar way, she's prepared to finally open the past to her family, no matter the consequences. But when the opportunity is snatched from her in a most unexpected manner, will she have waited too long?
Spanning generations, this moving family drama weaves together the interlocking stories of two women as they navigate relationships, family, faith, and the choices that will shape their lives. Heartwarming and nostalgic, the story explores the courage to share the wounds of the past and celebrates the legacy a family passes from one generation to the next.
"The story of Perla's life is told intermittently alongside events set in the present day, nicely building tension as the family moves from coldness to reconciliation. Thomas's realistic depiction of wavering but unbreakable family ties brings depth to the story of coming to terms with the past and living with faith in the face of uncertainty."--"Publishers Weekly"

Seeing Perla much older and suffering through not just one but two strokes was difficult (having my own grandmother suffer three). Watching her stubbornness was a picture into her very soul, as she struggled with pride, fear, and knowing what was the right thing to do. The truth she knew, that she was forgiven, but still had a responsibility to her daughter, was made very clear and the reader can feel her angst.
Being introduced to Ella was a great pleasure. I liked her from the start and found myself rooting for one of her suitors over the other. I watched with great expectation as she grew and learned in those months she returned home. Ella had a dream, she wanted something, something noble and good. But she learned that what God wanted for her was the most important thing she could want. And she learned to be content.
Yes this was a fiction, but there are some wonderful lessons that I have learned from this terrific book. It is worth reading for the pleasure of it, but also for the truth that it holds. I can highly recommend this book.
Loved each one of these books. I grew up in WV and this depicts that life perfectly. Families
are really close, cherish their heritage, and believe in God. Hope you enjoy them too!!!
