Description

What is the weight of a secret?

And what happens when that burden becomes almost too much to bear?

For decades, Perla Phillips has hidden the truth of a decision that still fills her with guilt. But now, seeing her granddaughter, Ella, struggle in a similar way, she's prepared to finally open the past to her family, no matter the consequences. But when the opportunity is snatched from her in a most unexpected manner, will she have waited too long?

Spanning generations, this moving family drama weaves together the interlocking stories of two women as they navigate relationships, family, faith, and the choices that will shape their lives. Heartwarming and nostalgic, the story explores the courage to share the wounds of the past and celebrates the legacy a family passes from one generation to the next. 

"The story of Perla's life is told intermittently alongside events set in the present day, nicely building tension as the family moves from coldness to reconciliation. Thomas's realistic depiction of wavering but unbreakable family ties brings depth to the story of coming to terms with the past and living with faith in the face of uncertainty."--Publishers Weekly

"Thomas's newest novel in the Appalachian Blessings series is true to form, and full of rich interactions and a love that goes beyond boundaries. . . . This novel is comfortable and warm; a lovely late summer read."--RT Book Reviews
