This inspiring novel is hard to put down. Pertinent issues, spiritual principles, forgiveness and new beginnings are entwined as skillfully as the characters’ lives. A lot of insight lies behind the title.

Upon being released from prison, Brynn Taylor embarks on a journey to fulfill her promise to her dying mother: to find the father whom she has never known. All she has to go on is a worn copy of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility and a name. She is led to sisters Christy and May Williams, and Ruth Santos. Ruth agrees to keep Brynn’s secrets, though she believes Brynn should open up to Christy and May. Brynn has never felt accepted or worthy of God’s love. Can she find that with Christy and May, or will they abandon her when they learn the truth? Will God hear Brynn’s pleas before it’s too late? (MOUNTAINVIEW, May, 402 pp., $13.99)
