A Place to Call Home
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.
Proverbs 13:12 (ESV)
After Jayne Dennagee's father was convicted of murder, Jayne wanted to distance herself from him, her hometown, and the undeserved reputation that had been thrust upon her. To that end she legally changed her name to Becca Morrow. With the help of her friend, Geneva Larkin, she was hired as a caretaker of a lovely lady named Auleria Hughes. In order to take the job, Becca moved halfway across the country to LaVida, California, all the while hoping that her father's reputation wouldn't catch up with her.
I loved the genuineness that flowed through this story. Becca's heart-wrenching sorrow, as well as her love for Geneva and Auleria. It is a story that could have been ripped from the headlines, but offers love and forgiveness. The realness of the characters and the situations drew me in and kept me between the pages until I closed the cover on a well told story.
About the Book:
All My Belongings
A new life and a new identity can’t protect Becca from a past that refuses to go away.
After spending years running from the shame her father put on her family, Jayne is determined not to let him steal her future in the same way he stole her childhood. Changing her name to Becca Morrow, she moves to California and settles into a new life and new job caring for ailing mother of handsome young businessman, Isaac Hughes.
But just as she’s wondering if she and Isaac are headed for a relationship, Becca’s patient passes away under unusual circumstances. Suddenly, her past catches up with her and the unnerving details of her heritage threaten to destroy all sense of home and all hope for love.
Even if she could clear her name, a phone call wraps a suffocating shroud around her heart. Her estranged father needs her help. But can Becca open her new life to the man who ruined her past?
