WHAT SHE LEFT FOR ME
Genre: Inspirational, Contemporary Romance
When Jana returns from a mission trip to Africa with news for her husband--she's pregnant!--she finds a terse note ending their marriage. Jana turns to her mother, Eleanor, and elderly aunt Taffy.
Gripped by pain and guilt, Eleanor has raised Jana to trust no one. Now Eleanor is terrified that her sins are coming home to roost, while vivacious Aunt Taffy is delighted to welcome Jana into her home. To Eleanor and Jana, Taffy seems a tower of faith and joy. The truth will either set them all free or destroy the last goodness in their lives.
Peterson explores deep pain and points readers to redemption. Flawed, sympathetic characters move through the pages with stark grace that ministers both insight and challenge. (Oct., 352 pp., $12.99)
