About The Book:
It is 1936 and Kate Merritt is trying hard to keep her family together. Her father has slipped into alcoholism, her mother tries to come to grips with their dire financial situation, and her sisters seem to remain blissfully oblivious to all of it. Kate could never have imagined that a dirty, abandoned little girl named Lorena Birdsong would be just what her family needs.
In this richly textured novel, award-winning author Ann H. Gabhart reveals the power of true love, the freedom of forgiveness, and the strength to persevere through troubled times, all against the backdrop of a sultry Kentucky summer.

About The Author:
Living just thirty miles from a restored Shaker village in Kentucky, Ann H. Gabhart has walked the same paths that her characters might have walked in generations past. Her thorough research provides a convincing and colorful backdrop for her Shaker novels. Gabhart is the author of several bestselling novels, including The Outsider, The Believer,The Seeker, and Angel Sister.
With beautiful writing, real-to-life characters, and circumstances that will have you in tears at times, and laughing at others, you will be drawn into the life of a 1930's family. This family is struggling with brokeness and despair, and the journey to move on from the past as you trust in God and allow Him to be all you need, and mold you into the exact person you were always meant to be. A stunning book that had me from page one, and though very intense, with a few great twists and turns along the way, was a page turner to the end.
I highly recommend this book, and give it a thumbs up!
