The story opens with Heather Hampton, successful Seattle architect, on the verge of her biggest career move yet. The entire deal hinges on the sale of her family's property in Texas. This is the place she experienced tragedy and depression and wanted nothing more to leave the past behind. In this deal she hoped to erase the past and forget the memories of her home. Instead she has to face the past to deal with the present. This past includes the mystery of how her father died in a place she never wanted to live. Heather tries to solve this mystery but only uncovers more secrets instead of answers.
I got frustrated reading this book as the secrets continued to build instead of being revealed. I read page after page waiting for the truth to be revealed. It took 300 pages before the truth started to come out. Once the mystery was solved, everything unraveled quickly. It was almost too quickly for as slow as the book started.
I did like one line toward the end of the book, "The great leaps in life are not made in the absence of fear but in the presence of faith." There were some good parts to the story, but overall the book was not satisfying.
Bethany House provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my review which I freely give.
