In the small town of Dogwood, West Virginia, Karin has buried her shattered dreams by settling for a faithful husband whose emotional distance from her deep passions and conflicts leaves her isolated. Loaded with guilt, she tries to raise three small children and "do life" the best she can. Will returns to Dogwood intent on pursuing the only woman he has ever loved--only to find there is far more standing in his way than lost years in prison. The secrets of Will and Karin's past begin to emerge through Danny Boyd, a young boy who wishes he hadn't survived the tragedy that knit those two together as well as tore them apart. The trigger that will lay their pain bare and force them to face it rather than flee is the unlikely figure of Ruthie Bowles, a withered, wiry old woman who leads Karin so deep into her anger against God that it forces unexpected consequences.

A Winner by Smiling Sally on 2/25/2012
Rating

This plot reminds me of a beautifully colored tapestry. Chapters are written in the voices of the different characters, allowing the reader a glimpse of the total plot. This is one of those novels that by the time the last page has been turned, I find myself a bit frustrated that I had no more to read.

I recommend this one! Discussion questions are included.
