From the publisher:
Young Millie Reynolds must confront the past and overcome her family’s long history of destructive choices before finding her own path to freedom.
Millie Reynolds knows firsthand the shame of family secrets. With an abusive father and a “nothing mama,” she craves a place of true belonging. Over time, the Gypsies that travel through town each spring offer acceptance. Then tragedy strikes and Millie leaves her world of poverty to join a prominent family on the other side of town. There, with the help of unlikely sources, Millie uncovers painful truths about her family’s past as she struggles to face a God she believes has abandoned her. When unconditional love is offered, Millie learns the power of forgiveness and finally discovers where she belongs.
I recently heard of this book and have heard nothing but positive things. Over on Amazon, there's mostly positive reviews, with only a few so-sos. While I usually shy away from books that receive so much praise, this one intrigues me. (If you're interested and have a Kindle, it's only $2.39 today on Amazon.) I don't have a Kindle, and I prefer a tangible copy, so this will go on my wishlist!
