Publisher's summary

Who's to blame when tragedy strikes?

Jamie blames herself.

And her secret is killing her.

When someone starts digging into the past, her already-tattered life begins to fall apart at the seams. With her marriage, her job, and her sanity in jeopardy, Jamie is desperate to escape everything that reminds her of that fateful night.

If only the nightmares would stop.

Pastor Byron lost both his wife and teenage son in the same weekend.

One in an accident, the other in an argument.

Determined to win his son back, no matter the cost, Byron strikes out at every turn until he gets injured at work. Forced to visit him in the hospital, his son makes it clear he doesn't appreciate Byron's intrusion into his life.

When Jamie meets Byron, the peace in the old pastor's eyes tells her he might be able to help with her problems. In return, she's determined to help him reconcile with his son.

As the pastor teaches Jamie about God's forgiveness, she must make a choice between seeking forgiveness from her family or keeping her mouth shut forever.

Either way, her life will never be the same.

Fans of Karen Kingsbury will enjoy the realistic characters and faith-driven novels by Valerie Howard.

Well written, just not my favorite

Howard's skill with a pen is again on display. She always has vivid characters and realistic situations. Perhaps it was my mood, but I found the whole tone of this book to be sad and depressing. It did keep my interest, I wanted to know how things would work out for the characters. I also found the ending redeeming and good. The narrator was skillful and did a good job.

Overall, I would say if you're in the mood for a more serious, realistic story with a good ending, this would be a great choice.
