Wow! This book was so good! I started this book today, intending to only make it about half-way through, but the moment I picked it up, I knew it was a one-setting kind of book!
This powerful book is about forgiveness. The person needing forgiveness is Mark Ryker, and he comes back to Corinthia, GA to do that very thing! There are many people mad at him for dropping out of high school and just leaving Georgia to run away from his problems of his brother's death, his mother's mental illness, and his friend's addiction to alcohol.
As he comes back, he needs the forgiveness of his father and the Williams family. The youngest daughter, Hannah, is now widowed and has four children. She is angry with him for what he did to her sister, Sydney. But not nearly as angry as her mother is! Her mother is anger-filled and unforgiving through the whole book!
Slowly, he manages to win most over to liking him. We watch the process of forgiveness and acceptance slowly evolve in the town for the bad boy that left a lot of bitterness behind. He falls head over hills in love with Hannah, and just when everything looks good - it may all come crashing down.
This book deserves ten stars! If you are struggling with forgiveness, this will give you hope!
