Roz is a young girl who just moved with her mother, brother and sister to a new town in order to get away from an abusive husband. Tillie is an older lady who raised her family in the house Roz’s family just moved into and she does not want to live anywhere else until she dies. Roz’s mother decides to let Tillie live there to help her with the kids while she works. Mara is a girl from Roz’s school and they form a quick bond because both of them desire and dream of their fathers coming back into their lives. The girls make a promise to help each other and pray for their relationship with their fathers. Both girl’s fathers do come back into their lives, but does it turn out the way the girls hoped for? Ann Tatlock wrote an excellent book. The story was intriguing and kept you guessing. It was also a book which teaches you about who our true Father is and that someday all our dreams will come true when He finally calls us home.
This was a free book from the publisher.
