Standing at the door is Brianna, a fourteen-year-old without a mother. All her life she had been told that her father didnt want her, which had caused many problems between her and her mother. She has only a suitcase, and she claims that she is Davids daughter. Susannes mind spirals into a whirlwind of questions and fears.
Throughout the story, readers can see Davids connection with God along with how the family reacts to this unexpected and painful situation. But after the resurfaced memory of his cheating ordeal with another woman back when he and Susanne were engaged, Davids struggle is apparent. Pushing his wife farther from God because of his past mistake, David begs for forgiveness from her and prays that God will show her the way.
During all of this hectic rifting between the husband and wife, their children get to know Brianna and begin to value her. Over time, its obvious that Brianna needs to stay, but the parents still arent sure.
All in all, the story is well written. The twists and turns that take readers through the novel sustain interest while building suspense and curiosity about what will happen next. It is a clever plot idea, and I must applaud Ferrells writing style. This novel I would suggest for teenagers and older, as some of the things that happen throughout the book may not be acceptable for a younger audience. -- Eliza M. Schane, Christian Book Previews.com
