Book Description: From bestselling author Melody Carlson comes this award-winning story of three generations of Lancaster women. For twenty years Meg Lancaster has avoided Briar Hedge, the Lancaster family estate. Now she has been drawn back to her grandmother's home to uncover secrets that have been hidden for decades and to try to regain the family she long ago abandoned.
My thoughts: This is a modern prodigal son . . only it is a prodigal daughter. The story is full of forgiveness, and personal growth. Much different than Melody's YA books. I highly recommend this!
This Melody Carlson novel was a RITA award winner and is now available as an e-book for $2.99
