Cassie George is barely staying above water as she works to get
her doctorate and raise her daughter. But she stubbornly keeps swimming
to prove a few bad decisions haven't ruined her forever. Plus, it's all a
great excuse to stay away from the small Oregon town she fled in shame
years prior. But when she receives a call that the aunt who raised her
has had a major health crisis, she knows it's time to return.
Cassie is surprised to be more welcomed by the quirky seaside community than she expected, even if there's still tension between her and her former classmate Nora Milford. But she still can't help feeling unsettled and is mystified by a mysterious package that appears, full of typed pages that tell the story of an anonymous woman's life. As her curiosity sends her on a journey toward truth, Cassie will discover that who she thought she was and what she wants for her life are both about to change.
About The Author
The old term of a community to raise a child applies here with the "love" shown to Cassie, Lark and Shasta, but we dig deeper and facts unfold, and shows that kindness is repaid with kindness.
Did I figure out how this all meshed together ahead of time, no, I was surprised, but kept looking for answers, and feeling compassion for those that give the ultimate for the love of others.
I will now be looking for more books by this author.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House and was not required to give a positive review.
