A tortured soul meets a damaged family…

A lonely man, a widowed woman, a carefree boy, and a broken girl… Can the four come together and help heal each other? Or will fear of the unknown and guilt about the past keep them apart?

Her whispered prayers break her...

At night, as she’s drifting off to sleep, I press my ear to the door and listen to her heart-wrenching pleas. Her words are agony to my healing heart, but I cherish the sound of them, for that’s the only time I ever hear my beautiful daughter speak. Since her father died two years ago, she’s grown quiet and withdrawn. Cat’s Valley was to be our new beginning, a place where my family and I can heal, but what we find there is so much more.

Scars mar his body. Pain has left him in pieces…

Four years ago, I lost the two things I cherished most in the world. They were ripped from my arms in the most painful and cruel way. Since then, I’ve kept to myself, preferring to stay away from the pitying looks and murmured rumors. Everything changed when she and her children barged into my life. It was an accident, and I don’t deserve them, but now that they’re here, I’m not sure I can let them go.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

Such a heart breaking read that tore me apart before putting me back together again.  Tissues at the ready for this one!

Alexander has been left scarred emotionally and physically by the same car accident that took his wife and daughter from him.  Hiding away from the world, he is just surviving until Gwendolyn and her two children enter his life.  His heart starts to come back to life as they slowly get under his skin.

Gwendolyn and her children know loss too.  Her daughter has not spoken more than a handful of words since she was the one to discover her father's body, except at night when she prays to God - the same prayer every night.

These two families can help each other heal and start living again.  The growing friendship and relationships between the two families has a dramatic impact on all concerned.  There is now hope when there was none.  There is now healing when there was none.

A breathtaking, beautiful and emotive read.  I felt the pain and the emotions keenly as they seeped off the page.  This was an amazing read that was both heart breaking and heart warming.
