The nightmares of caring for a terminally-ill mother have taken their toll on fourteen-year-old Allie Everly, and being orphaned then adopted and sent across the country during the Great Depression have nurtured the seeds of bitterness in her heart. After blaming her best friend, Sam, for her mother’s death, she is suddenly confronted by a new mother, a new family, and new circumstances. Time after time she rejects those who try to reach out to her, caught up in her own self-pity and longings. But when Sam appears four years later, Allie must confront not only who she has become, but a host of confusing emotions. After years of pushing people out, can Allie finally find forgiveness and comfort in God, and open her heart to the healing powers of love and family?
