Ruchti’s latest is a moving tale of making peace with the past. Overall the story is intriguing and the characters are relatable, but there are some awkward issues with the flow of the plot and inter-actions that detract from the pacing, making it difficult to fully believe what is happening. The ending is beautiful, and this is a tale worth reading.
Jayne is mortified about her father’s actions in the past — ones that caused her to be neglected as a child and scrutinized as an adult. Now that her father is in jail, Jayne wants to make a new life for herself. She changes her name and moves to California to care for the sister of a friend. She meets the woman’s son, Isaac, and there’s an attraction, but can Jayne get close enough when she has so many secrets? (ABINGDON, May, 320 pp., $14.99)
