Jen Gibbs has landed her dream publishing job, and left her painful past behind. But, when a mysterious package that includes forbidden works from the "Slush Pile" arrives, she is forced to return to the mountain lands that holds dark secrets from her past.
As the story unravels, you will see Jen grapple for peace of mind while reading through the painful past of another woman long ago. An excellently woven tale that touts mystery, love, and taps into the age-old issue of prejudice.
At first, I had a hard time connecting with Jen, but rightfully so. She's harboring bitterness and pain from a childhood fraught with horror. But, as she reconciles with her sisters, she find healing in unexpected places...and the beginnings of love.
My only bone to pick? I just wish the story had lasted longer. I wasn't ready to set the book aside.
I am thankful for my free copy from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review. I give it a hearty 5+ stars! I'm looking forward to reading more books by Wingate.
