Publisher's Description

Fourteen-year-old Elvira Witsil lives in a remote area of Wisconsin with her mother, Connie, who acknowledges Elvira only when chores need doing; her grandma, a cantankerous woman who can’t hold her tongue; and her baby sister, Jessie — who, the family discovers, is a seer. Along with the burdens of a difficult family, Elvira also bears a daunting secret — she encouraged her father to enlist in WWII. Ever since he was declared missing in action, Elvira has felt responsible for his presumed death. But Jessie also carries a secret about the father she never met — a secret so powerful that when her mother, Connie, learns of it, she sends the family on a journey to California with a traveling preacher. This powerful teen manuscript tells the story of a family’s journey toward forgiveness and a young woman’s journey toward faith

    I am an avid reader and usually will finish a book even if it is not that interesting or well written. This book, 'Insight', I confess I could not finish. I just don't like the characters at all and I can't stand the way the grandmother and mother treat each other or the children. I also do NOT like that the younger sister's first word is a curse word. The story lags and I just couldn't find it in me to finish it. I purchased this book for my 13 year old daughter and am so thankful that I did not give it to her.
