Readers' Favorite

"Considering this is her first novel, Green writes with impressive confidence, constructing a plot that is complex but emotionally touching. Abbie's noble fortitude, though, becomes the twine that holds the whole tender story together and makes this a sweet tale about the power of second chances."

 

Kirkus Reviews

"Author Sherye Simmons Green uses colorful verbs and sensory language to weave this simple story of healing and love. She also skillfully unwinds the tale, revealing just enough at a time... Readers who appreciate a straightforward tale with a hint of romance and characters who lean on prayer and faith should enjoy this book."
