"Lovett’s prose is elegant and descriptive... the reading experience is a rich one filled with feelings of regret, grief, and longing. An engrossing, well-told tale of a father and daughter separated by decades." – Kirkus Review
When Reverend David Wilder gets a letter from the daughter he's never known, he realizes that an old promise is a debt he might not be able to repay. His quiet life in the mountains of Western North Carolina will never be the same again. What would happen to his parish?
Molly has always felt she never quite fit in with her family. Nobody will tell her what happened to her mother, and she suspects that Daddy is not her birth father.
She'll stop at nothing to find the answer.
A secret from a tragic past meets the longings of a lonely present.
