Deep in the darkness of a Depression-era night, a man addicted to alcohol sells something precious to obtain it. His vile action impacts the lives of two entire families, and it will be over two decades before the horrible wrong begins to be made right again. Two young women - strangers to each other - unknowingly enmeshed in a Pandora's Box of secrets that could prevent them from finding happiness with the men they love. Two adoring mothers who know more than they are willing to say. A newsman with a story he cannot tell. What is their connection, and who is the golden-eyed stranger who moves in the shadows of their broken lives?
God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform.
Why the author wrote this book:
I always wanted to write a book set in Weedpatch, where I grew up. Since Weedpatch pretty much became a recognizable splotch in history during the Depression, I also wanted to include that, somehow. When I actually got started writing, I realized it wasn't going to be easy to separate the reality of WEEDPATCH with the fictional premise of my storyline...but God gave me the strength and fortitude. :)
