A Flicker of Light by Katie Powner

 


Secrets are like pennies. Everybody's got one, even the poorest among us.

For generations, the Jensens have raised their families in the small Montana town of Moose Creek, where gossip spreads faster than the wind. Yet some secrets need to be told.

When twenty-one-year-old Bea discovers she's pregnant on the heels of her husband losing his job, she's forced to admit she needs help and asks her dad for a place to stay. But past resentments keep her from telling him all that's going on.

Mitch Jensen is thrilled to have a full house again, though he's unimpressed with Bea's decisions: dropping out of college, marrying so young--and to an idealistic city kid, of all things. Mitch hopes to convince Bea to return to the path he's always envisioned for her, but she's changed since her mom died. And he refuses to admit how much he's changed, too, especially now that he might be losing his mother as well.

Grandma June is good at spinning stories, but there's one she's never told. Now that her mind is starting to fade, her time to tell it is running out. But if she reveals the truth before her memories are gone forever, the Jensen family will never be the same.

My Review


 
What a great book about family, and now the Jensen family is growing, in more ways than one, and we along for the journey.

We are given a young woman now expecting a child, a grandmother still holding a long held secret, a Dad who has his daughter and husband home, but still grieving, and wanting to still father is little girl, not so little anymore!

I loved the family dynamics here, God is working in their lives, and all they have to do is accept!

You don't want to miss this one, it does deal with some tough subjects, and for some there is not a great outcome, but you will be page turning for answers.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
