Publisher's Summary

It's 1983, and 12-year-old River Starling's life is anything but normal. She was adopted on a whim and came without a birth certificate. Her adoptive parents gave her up to her grandmother when she was only two, but River is certain her parents will come back.

River's hopes fall apart when Gram uproots them from their farmhouse and decides to move to Birdsong, West Virginia, the most miserable town River has ever seen. There she makes an unlikely friendship with an unusual boy and learns about acceptance, hard work, forgiveness, and the love of Jesus.

Discover the unforgettable story of one girl's search for a place to call home.

What an amazing book!

As the librarian for our church's children's library, I wanted to review this book. It is a lovely story but very intense and emotionally draining in parts. I cried. I wonder how a 12 year old reader would respond? I do pray that many young girls read this book and are touched by the gospel message and all the wonderful Christian themes. I'm looking forward to listening the sequel to this book. Thanks Wendy and thanks Christian Audio!
