2011 Carol Award winner for Debut Author from ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) Jenny Lucas swore she'd never go home again. But being told you're dying has a way of changing things. Years after she left, she and her five-year-old daughter, Isabella, must return to her sleepy North Carolina town to face the ghosts she left behind. They welcome her in the form of her oxygen tank-toting grandmother, her stoic and distant father, and David, Isabella's dad . . . Who doesn't yet know he has a daughter. As Jenny navigates the rough and unknown waters of her new reality, the unforgettable story that unfolds is a testament to the power of love and its ability to change everything--to heal old hurts, bring new beginnings . . . Even overcome the impossible. A stunning debut about love and loss from a talented new voice.

This story delves deep in the emotions of a dying woman, her choices, her family and then of the daughter who is left behind.
I have read all of Gina Holmes' novels - they are stories of forgiveness and real life. She writes in "first person" which I really like... meaning the main character is telling the story of their life. The reader is pulled into experiencing the pain, frustration, incidents and the need for forgiveness to be able to move on in life.
Highly recommend all of her books.
