Her whispered prayers break her...
At night, as she’s drifting off to sleep, I press my ear to the door and listen to her heart wrenching pleas to bring her father back. Her words are agony to my healing heart, but I cherish the sound of them, for that’s the only time I ever hear my beautiful daughter speak. Since her father died two years ago, she’s grown quiet and withdrawn. Catalina’s Valley is to be our new beginning, a place where my family and I can heal, but what we find there is so much more.
Scars mar his body. Pain has darkened his life…
Three years ago, I lost the two things I cherished most in the world. They were ripped from my arms in the most painful and cruel way. Since then, I’ve kept to myself, preferring to stay away from the pitying looks and the uttered rumors. Everything changed when she and her children barged into my life. It was an accident, not meant to happen, but I wonder if maybe it was.
A tortured soul meets a damaged heart…
A lonely man, a widowed woman, a carefree boy, and a broken girl… Can the four come together and help heal each other? Or will fear of the unknown and guilt of the past keep them apart?
I saw a post where the author made a plea before reading this and I agree you need lots and lots of tissues.
This story was like poetry for the soul, every look and word conveyed so much emotion you could feel the pain seeping from the page. Every character that we meet has suffered unimaginable pain and loss and when meet you just know fate has played a part in bringing then together because they are exact what each other needs.
I'm not sure who I loved the most but Kelsey is a little girl who stole my heart completely she manages to tell her story whilst speaking very little. Daniel her brother is a warm and sunny boy who is crying out for a man in his life. Alexander is a tortured man who has slowly cut himself off from life he is just going through the motions. Then we have Gwen who is the lynchpin that holds them all them together, she is a woman of great strength.
This was a beautifully written story that touched my heart and will stay with me for a long time.
