Life keeps piling problems on Meredith Jaynes. She loses her second foster child; one she was scheduled to adopt. Then Parker Snow refuses to marry her. With only her goats and artisan soap to support her, life will get no better.
If she is honest, though, she still has Crystal. Crystal is her funny, happy, loveable toddler who makes the sun shine and reminds her of the never-failing love of God.
Pearl Solomon loves her life with her grandfather Guy, but every one of her triumphs is over shadowed by her sisters’ lives. With Mama Meredith, they live a life she envies. Because of her jealousy, she refuses to contact them.
Years later, life for both families twist down paths they do not wish to travel. Pearl knows she’s lost what was most precious in life but has no means of her own devices. She spirals out of control. Meredith finds it harder to mask the despair infertility has brought to her life.
Both families believe they must reconcile themselves to their fates as reality shatters their dreams unless they dig deep for the promise of love.
Carol McClain is an award-winning author and a passionate Christian. Her stories show the redemption of the unredeemable. Although themes range from forgiving the unforgivable to escaping the trauma of the past, all her stories are told with humor and compassion. They will make you laugh and cry.
