Publisher's Summary

Alicen McAffery finally has the life her mother always dreamed for her: a beautiful home in Santa Monica, a successful husband, and an adorable daughter. Then tragedy blows her carefully assembled facade to pieces. Worse yet - Alicen feels solely responsible. 

At rock bottom, she decides to accompany a childhood friend back to Red Lodge, Montana, where they spent summers together as kids.The peaceful mountain landscape, accented with lush forests and small-town charm, brings back happy memories of time spent with her beloved, eccentric Grandma Josephine. Alicen begins to hope that perhaps things could be different here. Perhaps the oppressive guilt will lift - if only for a moment.

But when Alicen starts hearing voices and seeing mysterious figures near the river in the woods, she begins to fear she's completely lost her sanity, as it's rumored her grandmother did. Or might there be more to Red Lodge than meets the eye? Could the voices and visions be real - and her only means of finding the healing she so desperately needs? Or will they prove to be her final undoing?

An adventure into mind & spirit

It took me a while to get hooked. The disturbing evenrs & struggles of the main character opened my eyes to what some must press throught to get freedom.

This was a wonderfully refreshing book with the perfect narrator. Thank you Rachelle and I am so looking forward to future books by you. Your truly are your Daddy’s daughter with your artistic ability to write love and forgiveness in your story. I enjoyed the references to some of your Daddy’s books as well. More more more please

Too long and redundant

I Struggled to finish; the build up was slow and the resolution too fast. The reader was a little dry.

a book with a purpose

This was a good story I love a book with a purpose, or message but it was very slow moving. When the action did start it didn't gain very much momentum. The book seemed to jump too much between the two main characters. If you are not paying close attention you might get a bit lost and we all know how life gets in the way sometimes. Even though she tied up the Loose Ends I was not satisfied with it ending.... I love books that I would go back to and read again, and this is not one of them but I don't regret reading it.

Great listen

Rather compelling and kept my interest piqued from beginning to end! Great narrator which makes or breaks the book, in my opinion.

Very slow

I tried to get into this book. I recently read another of her books, The Choosing, and I really liked it. I am 7 chapters into this book and cannot finish. It is not interesting at all.

Beware: Strong Christian/Jesus Talk Seeped In

The writing was wonderful, albeit redundant way too much in covering the same inner monologues ad nauseum. I waited until two thirds of the way in until the resolution seemed too far off to grasp and the Jesus as Salvation agenda became more and more obvious, and personally, off-putting. This book should be categorized as Christian Fiction.

The idea behind the novel holds water, just not the execution as much.

Kind of want my hours back :(

Tedious and slow

Perhaps this book is better in print ... I found the dialogue repetitive and stilted - conversations were exhausting, wading thru what seemed to be the same ground over and over.

I’ve had family in mental health facilities, and I believe Jesus is the answer - so I really wanted to love this book. I stuck it out to the end to find out how it all came together, but it was tedious to get to the end.

Sad to leave a negative review, since her dad’s books are so good.

Just Okay.

The best part was that she referenced her dad's story. It was very slow and not enough depth.

A tough subject tackled well

I like the subtle links to her father's books. The subject matter is hard to listen to at first for obvious reasons but the teaching held within this book is well worth the discomfort.
