*thanks to Ann's website for the photo and synopsis
Mae Demaray was a well-adjusted if somewhat cold woman with a strong faith in God until her grandson was killed in an accident while in her care. Although nobody blames Mae for the tragedy, she feels that it was her fault. As the years pass, her faith slowly crumbles, and she begins to withdraw from the world. Soon Mae's only companion is Roy a mentally impaired man her mother had taken pity on in their youth. It is owing to Roy that family secrets are revealed, secrets that bring Mae back to the world as well as to God.
I liked this book, however, I thought it was more sad than happy. One terrible happening after another for the main character. I loved the overall idea though of being able to forgive yourself and letting God back into your life and heart. I also give this book a B.
Happy Reading, Happy Friday, Happy Weekend!
