Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers
In this new novella after the story in The Prayer Box, Tandi Jo has her life in order. She’s finishing up the Benoit House Museum and is soon to marry Paul. But her past still haunts her. It returns with a bang when she is served a court summons for a lawsuit on her grandparents’ property which doesn’t belong to her.
Tandi Reese and her sister, Gina, have always been bound by complicated ties. Amid the rubble of a difficult childhood lie memories of huddling beneath beds and behind sofas while parental wars raged. Sisterhood was safety . . . once. But now?
Faced with legal papers for a fraud she didn’t commit, Tandi suspects that her sister has done something unthinkable. With Tandi’s wedding just around the corner, a trip to the North Carolina Tidewater for a reckoning with Gina was not part of the plan. But unraveling lies from truth will require confronting strained sibling bonds and uncovering a dark family secret that could free Tandi from her past or stain her future forever.
