Publisher's Summary

After years of estrangement, the lives of Zara Mahoney and her twin sister, Eve, are suddenly and completely intertwined again. Eve's troubled lifestyle causes the state to take custody of her two children and contact Zara and her husband, asking them to consider foster care. Newlywed Zara thought she'd finally been given a fresh start and feels wholly unprepared to care for a niece and nephew whose existence she wasn't even aware of. 

Meanwhile, Eve may have a real chance to start over this time with the help of Tiff Bradley, who's dedicated to helping women everyone else has given up on after facing a heartbreaking tragedy in her own family. 

Over the course of one summer, all three women's hearts and lives hang in the balance as Eve desperately works toward a new life. 

Can they redefine their expectations of how life should be to find the hope they - and those they love - so desperately need?

Drew me in

This is the first story I have read by this author but it won’t be the last! The story drew me in and I really felt I got to know the characters and sympathized with each one. There were difficulties and struggles for everyone involved and some things aren’t always neat and tidy in life. And that ring true here. But I felt the strength of faith in God and his grace through situations in the story. The audio version was very good but sometimes the narrator would almost whisper and that was not ideal in my opinion. I’m looking forward to more titles by this author!
