    During a houseboat vacation on the remote Lake of the Woods, a violent gale sweeps through unexpectedly, stranding Cork and his daughter, Jenny, on a devastated island where the wind has ushered in a force far darker and more deadly than any storm. Amid the wreckage, Cork and Jenny discover an old trapper’s cabin where they find the body of a teenage girl. She wasn’t killed by the storm, however; she’d been bound and tortured before she died. And from outside comes the soft wail of an infant, abandoned in the brush....

    Story

    A good story is compromised by the clumsy narration by Buck Schimer. He does not do the Minnesota accent with accuracy or authority. Try Minnesota denizen Dale Connelly to narrate this author

    In the compelling conclusion to the New York Times best-seller Her Mother’s Hope, Christy Award-winning author Francine Rivers explores the sorrow that can tear families apart and the grace that can heal the deepest wounds. Just as Carolyn had formed a stronger bond with her Oma Marta than with her mother, so Carolyn’s daughter is drawn to her grandma more than to a mom who’s caught up in the 1960s counterculture....

    Alaina says: "Great book"
    "The usual dreadful writing of Christian books"
    Overall

    This book was so disappointing. Ms. Rivers falls in to the same habits of most Christian writers: stilted piety and safe stereotypes. Instead of characters that truly live in the world with faith, these characters fall back on all the narrow assumptions of most Christians, with the exception of the Oma character, who was willing to truly live and live her faith.
