When I saw the opportunity to participate in a book tour for Melody Carlson, I was thrilled! I am a huge fan of her work, and I own copies of many of the 200+ books she has written. The rest are on my paperback-swap wish list;) So, it is no surprise that I LOVED this book! It is full of surprises, twists, and turns, and as usual, I stayed up into the wee hours of the night captivated by the story, and couldn't stop reading to the end. This is fabulous on my Kindle now that I have a spiffy leather cover with a reading light;) This story is one that I think anyone can relate to because it details Meg, who returns home after a long period of time to her dysfunctional family, and let's face it, every family has some level of dysfunction and family secrets! The story of how she returned to her religious roots is fascinating and very moving.
