I didn’t realize until I started reading this novel, that I read Book I and II several years go. As I remembered the characters I was so glad I was going to read the conclusion of the dilemma between Hannah and Sarah, sisters, Paul her closest friend, Luke her brother, and Daed who never acted as if he believed in her or that what she had told him about a delicate yet horrid happening was true. Hannah was a young girl, pure in heart, but soiled as a teen. Sadly, she is given very poor advice that leaves her scarred and scared and she leaves her hometown. She is convinced she will never be accepted and that her friend will never really trust her. Her sister, Sarah, becomes emotionally sick, but no one understands what is wrong with her and she doesn’t get help before she hurts herself and others. This is a story that takes many twists and turns, but these are what teach each of them about the wrongs that take place over a few years. Hannah separates herself from her community and her church for a period of time, but a love for others will bring her back to face her ghosts. Even though she thinks she has already found a new live in another city, Hannah will truly find herself again and the door will open where she left it almost shut. Restoration is sweet and she helps others while she is being shown the most important needs of all. A great story and I enjoyed it very much.
