About the Book:
Savannah Barrington has always found solace at her parents’ lake house in the Berkshires, and it’s the place that she runs to when her husband of over twenty years leaves her. Though her world is shaken, and the future uncertain, she finds hope through an old woman’s wisdom, a little girl’s laughter, and a man who’s willing to risk his own heart to prove to Savannah that she is worthy of love.

But soon Savannah is given a challenge she can’t run away from: Forgiving the unforgivable. Amidst the ancient gardens and musty bookstores of the small town she’s sought refuge in, she must reconcile with the grief that haunts her, the God pursuing her, and the wounds of the past that might be healed after all.


My Rating & Thoughts:    🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟    (4 stars)   

Releases May 22nd!

Catherine West was a new author to me, so while I was unsure what to expect, this book blew away all of my expectations. This is a very emotional and thought provoking book which does not shy away from the tough topics, but rather deals with several tough situations - adultery, pending divorce, death of a child, depression and suicide, terminal illness. I did spend more time reading this book than typical, as it took some time to process all that I was reading due to the depth of these topics. This was filled with emotion and several times I found myself in tears.
This storyline is filled with very heavy topics, however, through it all there is so much hope and redemption and God’s love. These topics are dealt with in a realistic way and portrayed real life with real issues.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley.
Opinions expressed in this review are my honest opinion and completely my own.
