For decades, Perla Phillips has hidden the truth of a decision that still fills her with guilt. But now, seeing her granddaughter, Ella, struggle in a similar way, she's prepared to finally open the past to her family, no matter the consequences. But when the opportunity is snatched from her in a most unexpected manner, will she have waited too long?
Spanning generations, this moving family drama weaves together the interlocking stories of two women as they navigate relationships, family, faith, and the choices that will shape their lives. Heartwarming and nostalgic, the story explores the courage to share the wounds of the past and celebrates the legacy a family passes from one generation to the next.
My first thought about this book was " you never know what is around the corner." This book explains this oh so well, when Perla is taken ill. Also keeping secrets may at the time seem like a good idea, but it will come back and bite you in the butt later down the line.
This book was a nice read, but I can honestly say I had forgotten I had read it. I read it at the end of last month and hadn't gotten around to posting a review, so had to really think back to remember what this book was all about.
I thought Ella was such a strong person with strong convictions, who needed to be around her family to grow. The bond between her and her grandmother was so special, and one I hope to have with my granddaughters.
Stars out of 5 : 4 I read it over a couple of days and I enjoyed it, but it's not a book I will remember down the road. If you like books about family bonding this is one for you.
