When her terminally ill mother demands a "celebration of life," the women gather for a "stormy" weekend in Monterey. Will they let God help them forgive---and be forgiven? 320 pages, softcover from Moody.
Raised to be a "new woman" by her mother and three college roommates in the 70's amid anti-war protests, feminist rallies and finals, Rain Rasmussen discovers that putting her career first has left her overdrawn at the egg-bank, and her baby fever has now driven off her significant other.
When her terminally ill mother demands a Celebration of Life before she dies; they all confront ghosts from the past on a "stormy" weekend in Monterey. Bebe, the roommate closest to Rain's heart, revisits choices that have impacted Rain the most, raising doubts about God's--and her own--willingness to forgive and to be forgiven.
