Publisher's Summary

Mattie Fisher's three daughters know that she's been keeping a secret from them. With each item pulled from the beloved family hope chest, they've discovered a new clue about their mother's past.

But there's a reason Mattie has been keeping her history hidden, and she's not sure she's ready to reopen old wounds. Will dredging up the past change the way her children view her? Or her marriage to their father? And can she handle the pain of revisiting the memories that preceded the last few happy decades?

Mattie's story is one of grief and learning to love again. But like the best things preserved in a hope chest, it's a story of love and redemption born out of heartache - and it's past time to share it.

Mellow

Tillie or Emily voices sound so hateful and judgmental; people I would avoid talking to and I was always glad when they went away. These stories are a lot of whining and insecurity, too. The German pronunciations also need work and a few words are just wrong, "Was ist letz?" means what is last? I think they meant, "Was ist LOS?" which is "what's wrong?" But for all I know, the Pennsylvania Deutsch could possibly be that distorted from the original German. The stories were engaging, though which is why I listened to all four.

Commitment

A perfect story of accepting God's will for us and being willing to commit to Him.
