Product Description

A storm the size of Texas brews when Gloria Powell and Kai Chang meet in a Ft. Worth hotel. They have come to discuss the future of Lily, the daughter Gloria adopted from China and the sister Kai hopes to reclaim. Kai is a doctor who had to give up her little sister during the Cultural Revolution and has since discovered that an inherited genetic defect may be waiting to fatally strike Lily.

Gloria's relationship with her daughter is tattered and strained, and the arrival of Kai, despite the woman's apparent good intentions, makes Gloria fearful. Gloria longs to restore her relationship with Lily, but in the wake of this potentially devastating diagnosis, is Kai an answer to prayer--or will her arrival force Gloria to sacrifice more than she ever imagined?

Publisher's Weekly

Texans Gloria and Andrew Powell adopt a Chinese girl, Lily (whom they rename Joy), who grows into a rebellious teenager. Meanwhile, Lily’s older sister, Chang Kai, moves to America for her medical training, knowing she must honor their mother’s last words: “Reclaim Lily.” Kai also knows that Lily may have inherited the kidney disease that killed the girls’ mother. She is the unwelcome bearer of bad news even as the Powells grapple with Joy’s defiance. Lacy lays out a nicely knotted plot that women readers who have adopted internationally can particularly relate to. But her execution misses the mark. The prose wears purple rouge (“The points of his shiny, star-shaped badge gleamed a chilling message”). Characterization is uneven; Andrew Powell is an infinitely patient minister, and Joy/Lily’s character development is unpersuasive. Readers seeking a wholesome read should know the story is strongly evangelical Christian; the come-to-Jesus plot moments may puzzle those who don’t need them. The portrayal of Chinese religious philosophy is also myopically evangelical Christian. All in all, this novel will be enjoyed most by those who share the author’s religious beliefs. (Oct.)
