After a bittersweet reunion, will the two discover that some hurts can’t be healed, or is there a tie that’s thicker than blood?

My Review: I loved this debut novel by C.J. Darlington. What a great story of family, forgiveness, and the things that we let get between us. Christy has a past that she can’t seem to forgive herself of and doesn’t think anyone else could either. She let her past get between her relationship with her sister and hadn’t made contact with her in many years. I really liked Christy’s sister, May. She had a love for the Lord and for her sister that endeared me toward her. I look forward to reading more from this author.

I received a copy of this book from the author to read and review. My review is not biased by the fact that I was given this book. I HONESTLY read and review any book whether bought or given to me. If I did not like the book I would definitely not give a rave review or recommend it.
