When her aunt shows up homeless on her doorstep, Sara suspects anything but a miracle.

Sara is an artist with a supportive husband and a house that folks on her block admire. But she's restless and bored with life. Then her legendary Aunt Bel shows up, wearing a smile after years without a word.

Twenty years ago, fresh out of college, Bel left for a summer missions trip and never returned. Now she's on Sara's doorstep, looking for a place to stay. Sara can't say no to family, even if she hasn't seen Bel since she was a nine-year-old girl. But saying yes to Bel turns Sara's whole precariously-balanced life upside down.

The enigmatic Bel gives Sara's family and their community a jolt of fresh thinking and clarity. But Bel is hiding something. Though she won't talk about it, Sara soon learns that Bel has been through a hellish ordeal. And she has the burn marks to prove it.

Fantastic!! by Katelynn on 2/28/2014

I don't think anyone pushes your buttons quite like a relative. It's like they have open access to your remote control and they push your buttons just to see the channel change.The sudden arrival of missionary Aunt "Bel" Belinda from Kazakhstan on Sara's doorstep definitely turns her neat life haywire. Bel's eccentric nature opens doors into Sara's past she'd rather remain shut.

Families are all complicated even though people think theirs is the most difficult one. Sara's family is definitely not any different. Hers is a group of people who love each other, disappoint each other, who challenge each other. Samson presents a down-to-earth novel with a memorable cast of characters who carry standout personalities. This novel tells the story of a family dealing with the revelations of secrets. They are alive, always changing and this a thought you can runaway with.

Rating: 4.5/5
