Annalise Forsythe has painful secrets, just like everyone else does in Gossamer Grove. But when mysterious events and dangerous things begin to happen, she begins the brutal task of unburying secrets, which only serves to uncover more suspicious pasts in Gossamer Grove. She is not pleased when an old flame arrives in town during this vulnerable point of her life. As she begins to let God help her forgive and start fresh, she learns that the past can actually help her heal her future. Her search for answers digs up the unusual story of Libby Sheffield, a young lady at the turn of the century working at her father’s newspaper company during a spiritual revival in the town. Libby is facing her own demons from her past. These two ladies, though separated by time, have similar goals to heal and move on.
I very much enjoyed the first novel by Jaime Jo Wright and was looking forward to her next book. I did not typically like split-time plots, but now this author has turned me around to them by crafting stories that connect is such unique and interesting ways. I very much liked both of the main protagonists in this book and found the overarching theme of forgiveness and moving on from painful pasts something that any reader can relate to. The plots are interesting with the twists and turns and I did not anticipate the villains. My favorite part is seeing how all the details fit together at the end. I very much recommend this book!
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers/Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
