Publisher's Summary

NAACP nominee and best-selling author Beverly Jenkins returns to the charming town of Henry Adams, Kansas - a place that always feels like home - in this heartwarming story of family, friendship, and the surprises hidden in our lives.

Henry Adams has had its fair share of drama ever since Bernadine Brown bought the town with her divorce settlement. Now just when things are starting to settle down, it’s about to get crazy again....

Cephas Patterson doesn’t just want to be left alone - if you dare step onto his property, he’ll meet you with a shotgun and a warning to stay away from his gold. He reminds Zoey of the lonely time she spent living on the streets, so she quietly begins leaving him small offerings. But then Cephas dies and leaves a saddlebag of gold - to Zoey.

And that’s not all. Zoey’s parents are going through a trial separation, her former BFF Devon is giving her fits, and friend Crystal has run away from home. Then there’s Bernadine’s mean-spirited baby sister who has arrived unexpectedly, and an ongoing battle with a neighboring town is about to heat up.

Will Henry Adams ever be the same again?

When we allow God to use us!

I loved everything about this story even the parts where there were some not so nice characters or things did not go exactly as I wanted them to go for such is life. I was hooked on these Blessings Novels from the very first one I heard. In fact, I was so bowled over by the first Blessings Novel that I went ahead and bought the other and then I bought some of the backstory novels of the July Family. I am now a Beverly Jenkins fan for life! I love how you interspersed the Word of God in your novels and how your characters (most of them) all reach for doing the right thing because it is right. I love how this historical Black town embraced these children that society had virtually thrown away for one reason or another. I am totally captivated by Tamar! She keeps all of the characters in line and does it all with a stern eye and gentle love. Thank you for such a loving story.
