I must admit that I read this book from cover to cover in one day.
This is a modernized parallel to the prodigal son story found in scriptures.
We have a family torn apart through tragedy. The girls are torn away from a loving home and raised with cruel grandparents. Life for Kara and Lizzie becomes understatedly complicated. During this time the girls are lied to about the tragedy for the next fifteen years by their maternal grandparents. The girls are stuck with Eloise and Deke until their eighteenth birthday. Only then can Amanda come and offer the girls their birthright, with conditions.
Ultimately, can Kara make peace with her past and accept the loving relationship Amanda most desires to have with her and Lizzie?
Some of the issues covered in this story are, child neglect/abuse, gambling, alcohol, premarital intimacy, steeling, and spousal abuse.
I would like to give this book a five star rating.
