When the truth comes to light, will Annie discover a treasure more valuable than she could have expected?
Christian fiction author Kingsbury is well loved by her fans, and this newest story, based loosely upon her own brothers death, will further endear her to her faithful readers. Kingsbury tells the story of a strained relationship between picture-perfect Nate and Annie Warren, whose son, Josh, a tow truck driver, has been a disappointment to them. Even though Joshs mistakes are now history, his current joblessnessowing to a drunk drivers recklessnessserves to ratchet up his parental disapproval rating. Only a few people know the truth: Josh is a real-life hero and his one hearts desire is to be united with a daughter hes never met. When Joshs life is struck again by tragedy, his immediate family must come to grips with the recognition that they never really cared enough to ultimately know their son. Kingsbury does a fine job communicating the emotional struggles of individuals, and readers will resonate with her characters sorrows and losses. Yet much of the story is formulaic, which detracts from its otherwise powerful message about acceptance. (Jan.)Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
