Publisher's Summary

She left, heavily weighted with secrets. But God reveals all things, in His timing. And He redeems them. Suzanne Zimmerman was only 17 and pregnant when her shamed mother quietly sent her away from their Old Order Mennonite community in Kansas. With her old home, family, and first love firmly behind her, Suzanne moved to Indiana, became a nurse, and raised a daughter, Alexa, on her own.

Now, nearly 20 years later, an unexpected letter arrives from Kansas. Her brother asks her to bring her nursing abilities home and care for their ailing mother. His request requires that Suzanne face a family that may not have forgiven her and a strict faith community. It also means seeing Paul Aldrich, her first love. Paul, widowed with an eight-year-old son, is relieved to see Suzanne again, giving him the chance to beg her forgiveness for his past indiscretion. But when he meets Alexa, his guilt flickers in the glare of Suzanne’s prolonged secret - one that changes everything. Suzanne had let go of any expectation for forgiveness long ago. Does she dare hope in mercy - and how will her uncovered past affect the people she loves the most?

    "Good lessons on making assumptions"

    Interesting story. It would have been better if the author hasn't drawn out the misassumptions by the main character until the end. However, we look forward to listening to the other books in this series.

    "A very good listen"

    I've not listened to Mennonite stories before, but this first book left me wanting to hear more. I will keep checking back to see if the next book appears.

    "excellent story and performace"

    I loved this book! It was touching beautiful and engaging! I couldn't stop listening. The narrator added such emotion and suspense to this book that I was moved and I can't wait for the next book in the series to be released.

    "exceptional in every way"

    a story that kept your interest and kept you guessing. Lessons that we all need to hear and reminders of the everyday troubles that almost every family faces in some way or another.

    "Okay...it's done"

    Ok story, tho I found very slow, having to promise myself to "just keep going, it will get better!" Am only slightly curious to continue with any of the next works.
