A redemptive storyÂ from multi-platinum recording artist Sara Evans.
Jade Fitzgerald left the pain of her past in the dust when she headed out for college a decade ago. Now she’s thriving in her career and glowing in the light ofÂ Max Benson’s love.
But then Jade’s hippie mother, Beryl Hill, arrives in Whisper Hollow, Tennessee, for Jade’s wedding along withÂ Willow, herÂ wild younger sister. Their arrival forces Jade to throw open the dark closets of herÂ past–the insecurity of living with a restless, wandering mother, the silence of her absent father, and the heart-ripping pain of first-love’s rejection.
Turns out Beryl has a secret of her own. She needs reconciliation with her oldest daughter beforeÂ illness takes her life. In the final days leading to the wedding, Jade meets the One who shows her thatÂ the past has no hold onÂ her future. With a little grace, they’ll meet in the middle, maybe even before that sweet by and by.
What I Thought
As a dude, this book was not aimed at me or my demographic.Â The author did an awesome job of building the plot and characters. About half way through, I was hooked and it became a page turner for me.
Thanks to author’s ingenuity and crafting of the story that dealt with family and relationship issues, I was rooting for the characters in the end.Â The book definitely tugged at my heart strings but I didn’t cry (I promise, I didn’t, I had some dust, leave me alone).Â For most of the guys who read this blog it will be too feminine but I’ll keep it on the shelf until my daughter is old enough to read it.
