Staff Reviews


An affluent, suburban community is rocked when a well-known resident is accused of child abuse.

But no one is rocked more that Sarah Laden.  The woman accused is her best friend.  If the accusation is true, what does this say about Sarah’s ability to judge people and make friends?  If it is false, what kind of friend is she if she lets her best friend become the town pariah?

The book deals with an extremely painful issue w/o resorting to tried clichés.

Katrina Kittle is one of my very favorite authors.

Description


A young widow raising two boys, Sarah Laden is struggling to keep her family together. But when a shocking revelation rips apart the family of her closest friend, Sarah finds herself welcoming yet another troubled young boy into her already tumultuous life.

Jordan, a quiet, reclusive elementary school classmate of Sarah's son Danny, has survived a terrible ordeal. By agreeing to become Jordan's foster mother, Sarah will be forced to question the things she has long believed. And as the delicate threads that bind their family begin to unravel, all the Ladens will have to face difficult truths about themselves and one another--and discover the power of love necessary to forgive and to heal.
