Almost 20 years ago, Suzanne left her Mennonite Community, pregnant and alone to raise her daughter, Alexa, and make a life for them. Now so many years later, Suzanne hears that her mother has been in an accident that has left her paralyzed and in need of care. Now so many years later, Suzanne and Alexa travel back to face the difficulties from the past.

I like that many of the Zimmerman clan were young when Suzanne left, so they don't remember, and are doing their best to get to know her again, especially Clete's wife, Tanya.

This is a beautiful family drama, of forgiveness and hope. The first in a series, I can only look forward to what is to come!
