ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I am mostly just a woman trying to live her life in a manner pleasing to the Lord. That involves being a wife to Jeff and a mother to my three teenagers--neither role coming easily but both roles stretching me, requiring me to press in closer to Jesus. And because of this, Jesus has taken an insecure, fearful, sometimes angry girl and is turning her into a more trusting, peaceful, grace-filled woman. At least some of the time. There is still such a long way to go!
ABOUT THE BOOK
But the Spanish flue epidemic changes everything. Faced with her aunt's death, Arthur's indecisiveness, and four children who have no one else to care for them, Rebekah is torn between the desire to escape the type of life she's always led and the unexpected love that just might change the dream of her heart.

MY THOUGHTSThis is a very sweet but sad book, life doesn't always goes as planned or as we like and Rebekah has high hopes and ambitious dreams, she embraces life and takes what comes to her with grace. I was a bit surprised at the harshness of Rebeka's mother, but as you get to know her she becomes understood and Rebekah is a character that you can't help but love. If I had been Rebekah and thrown into a situation such as hers at the beginning of the book I think I would have sat down and cried, but she's one tough woman and full of heart. I think you'll enjoy this book.
