All My Belongings

By Cynthia Ruchti


After spending years running from the shame her father put on her family, Jayne is determined not to let him steal her future in the same way he stole her childhood. Changing her name to Becca Morrow, she moves to California and settles into a new life and new job caring for the ailing mother of intriguing but caregiver-challenged young businessman, Isaac Hughes. But just as she's wondering if she and Isaac are headed for a relationship, Becca's patient passes away under unusual circumstances. Suddenly, her past catches up with her and the unnerving details of her heritage threaten to destroy all sense of home and all hope for love. Even if she could clear her name, a phone call wraps a suffocating shroud around her heart. Her estranged father needs her help. But can Becca open her new life to the man who ruined her past?

Book Takeaway:

Forgiveness--of ourselves and others--can turn the ugliest of circumstances into something tender and beautiful.

Why the author wrote this book:

Whether in our family of origin, our extended family, middle school, our job, our church, or an empty nest, we all wrestle with the question, "Where do I belong?" And many of us find that question complicated when we're thrown into a caregiving responsibility. The answer has less to do with where we're from, and who we came from, or the stains on our past, and more to do with in Whose embrace do we find ourselves.


"All My Belongings is another Ruchti home run! Becca's emotions are so spot-on. The hope revealed and the restoration of faith will make you reach for a tissue. Ruchti's always makes me chuckle and cry"
