Patsy had experienced so much and from a child's perspective her mom abandoned her, but from a mother's perspective she did everything in her power to protect her child, as most mothers would. However this book was enlightening on how differently adults and children can view the same events, and how those views and memories can affect the rest of your life. I really enjoyed this book. It was not like most other Christian fiction novels I've read lately where it's the predictable storyline where a boy meets a girl leading to happily ever after. It touches on real life issues that many people face - abuse, trouble with the law, losing loved ones, giving up a child you can't care for etc, and found it very refreshing and real. I am definitely looking forward to reading other novels by Eva Marie Everson.
A copy of this book was received care of Revell, a division of Baker Publishing.
