Description

NAACP nominee and bestselling author Beverly Jenkins returns to Henry Adams, Kansas--an unforgettable place that anyone would want to call home--with a story of family, friends, and the powerful forces from our past that can irrevocably shape our future.

Mayor Trent July and his wife Lily are enjoying life as newlyweds and embracing the challenges and joys that come with being foster parents to two wonderful boys. But being a foster father has inevitably forced him to think about his own birth mother. Raised by his grandmother Tamar--and in many ways the good people of Henry Adams--Trent was blessed with a childhood full of love.

But now he can't help wondering what happened to the scared teenage girl who handed him over to Tamar. And questions that he's never voiced are now begging to be answered: Who was she? Is she still alive? Why didn't she want him?

Trent has always believed no good comes from dwelling on the past, especially when you have a loving family, a strong community, and folks who depend on him. But when the past comes to Henry Adams and Trent has no choice but to face it--and the woman who left him behind. The truth will shake his very being and everything he thought he knew about life, love, and the bonds that hold families together...yet can also tear them apart.
