Publisher's Summary

As a chalk-fingered child, I had worn my craving for Mama's love on my sleeve. But as I grew, that craving became cloaked in excuses and denial until slowly it sank beneath my skin to lie unheeded but vital, like the sinews of my framework. By the time I was a teenager, I thought the gap between Mama and me could not be wider. And then Danny came along....

A splendidly colored sidewalk. Six-year-old Celia presented the gift to her mother with pride - and received only anger in return. Why couldn't Mama love her? Years later, when once-in-a-lifetime love found Celia, her mother opposed it. The crushing losses that followed drove Celia, guilt-ridden and grieving, from her Bradleyville home. Now thirty-five, she must return to nurse her father after a stroke. But the deepest need for healing lies in the rift between mother and daughter. God can perform such a miracle. But first Celia and Mama must let go of the past--before it destroys them both.

    "Highly Recommended!!!"

    This is hands-down the best book I have ever listened to. The story draws you in and you truly get to know the characters. I purchased hard copies after completing the book to give to my friend and daughter. I wish they would make a movie out of this book.

    "Wow. I couldn't put the book down."

    The first half of the book brought me in, getting to know the characters. The second half of the book I couldn't put down. It was a storm of strong emotions. I just wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next with the characters and how their relationships would progress with each other and with God. I love the Bradleyville town because the community is so focused on God and God's path for them. I've learned so much about praying and depending on God for direction from the books. To me all of the Brandilyn Collins books I have read have been very inspirational.
