Publisher's Summary

Eleven-year-old Grace Carter has a talent for hiding things. She's had plenty of practice, burying thoughts and feelings that might anger her strict evangelical pastor father, and concealing the deep intuition she carries inside. The Knowing, as Grace calls it, offers glimpses of people's pasts and futures. It enables her to see into the depth of her mother's sadness, and even allows Grace to talk to Isaac, her twin brother who died at birth. To her wise, loving Aunt Pearl, the Knowing is a family gift; to her daddy, it's close to witchcraft.

Grace can't see into someone's thoughts without their permission. But it doesn't take her special talent to know that her small community is harboring its share of secrets. A young girl has gone missing. Within Grace's own family too, the cracks are widening, as her sisters Hope, Joy, and Chastity enjoy the normal life that eludes Grace. It's Grace's kinship with other outsiders that keeps her afloat - Lyle, a gentle, homeless man, and Lola, a free-spirited new girl at school. But when her mother lapses into deep depression after bringing home a new baby, Grace will face a life-changing choice - ignore her gift and become the obedient daughter her father demands, or find the courage to make herself heard, even if it means standing apart....

Beautiful Story

This is a beautiful story about a young girl and the struggles she faces as she grows. She struggles to fit into a world where her gifts are not celebrated like they should be. If you have ever felt different or misunderstood, this is a good book to read & listen to.

Sweet story

A wonderful story told in Bailey Carr excellent voice. Grace is born with the gift of "Knowing". Sometimes it comes in the form of a premonition; sometimes a glimpse into the past. She proves, over & over, that she's not making up stories. Most people are afraid, or nervous, to be around her. Her father is a bible-thumping preacher who believes her ability is not a gift but a curse. Being tightly wrapped in his religion & his convictions, he doesn't see the hypocrisy in which he treats his daughter. Beautiful story, well written & well narrated, about a gifted girl trying to do the best she can in the face of fear & doubt. Thankfully, she has love & friendships, & her brother, Isaac, to help her along the way. This story will have you laughing & crying & cheering for Grace!

Great Help for anyone with gifts.

This is a great book for anyone with gifts who is still struggling in accepting them or in where the gifts come from or what to do when people try to say they are evil.

Fabulous

One of the best I’ve read in a long, long time! I can’t read because of increasing loss of sight. This was a delight to listen to.

Enjoyed it very much

The story was very good.
I cringed every time the female narrator read the parts of the father and brother. It was awful. But the story was good enough to eventually ignore.

Wonderful story. Makes one feel comfort and joy to think about what God has in store for those that follow Jesus. Also the hope that we will see or loved ones that have gone on before us. Good Story!

I was immediately drawn into the life of a family that felt like my own ;I ( at age 60 something😀)ate with them ,went outside to play, went to school, and to church. This one will stay with me quiet a while. Here's to growing up, and three cheers for Eldonna Edwards taking us home again.#comingofage #feelgood #tagsgiving#Sweepstakes!

Beautiful!

I loved the sparkling, flowing prose of this book. I was captivated from the beginning, and was transported into Grace’s world, where she battled with very difficult, and sometimes, adult situations.
The narrator was perfect for this book!
