A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS?
Like all the other Karen Kingsbury books, I've ever read, this is well written. It will keep you turning the pages until there are no more to turn. The Books starts out with this Mom and her son. The Mom is A Flight Attendant, and her plane goes down, leaving her son all alone. But in her will, it was one of her last wishes that Max spend 2 weeks with the Father he's never known, but not under the knowledge that it was his father, just a friend of his mother's.
But when Connor get's the phone call from the attorney, Will he be able to Save his marriage, and 'save' his son?
When Michele learns of her husband's unfaithfulness, years down the road, she doesn't know what to do with the information. But one thing she does know, She can't live with a constant reminder of Connor's sin...But will she trust God, and do what she knows is right? 'Or will the presence of one lonely child destroy everything?'
It was a good book, Unlike some of her other books, it doesn't go through Boy girl meet. Fall in Love. Get Married, routine. But it goes through the real life situations of grief, hurt, anger, and healing.
