Publisher's Summary

Destiny Jones is doing just fine on her own, thanks. From her thriving one-woman carpentry business to the loving support of her small-town community, Destiny has constructed a life as sturdy and polished as her best cabinets. Twenty years ago, Destiny's world collapsed when her mother died and her father, Albert, abandoned his daughter to pursue acting in New York. His devastating exit taught Destiny a lesson in self-reliance that has kept her safe - and alone - ever since.

Now Albert Jones is back, begging for a second chance. Destiny suspects he's simply staging another performance, starring himself as the prodigal father. Should she act on her misgivings? Or listen to her inner child, who still yearns for a family? When Albert divulges a shocking secret, Destiny's life will again be turned upside down.

Kathleen Long's warm, wise novel reveals that the armor that has protected us in the past is often the very thing we must shed to fully live and love.

    "Depressing and predictable"

    This may be the worst book I have ever wasted my time listening too. So very predictable and depressing! Boring with absoultely no surprises.
