ABOUT THIS BOOK 

When the truth cost her everything, she thought there was nothing left to lose.

Mikayla Gordon loves nothing more than sleeping under the stars, reeling in the “big one,” and long hikes in the wilderness. A medical crisis reveals a 30-year-old secret that turns everything she’s known and believed upside down, unraveling her dreams and her identity.

In search of answers, she follows a trail from Minnesota to Colorado and discovers more unwelcome secrets even as she falls in love with the majestic beauty of the Rocky Mountains, and a wilderness camp leader who shares the greatest secret of all.

Knowing her life can never go back to what it was, she must make decisions that will impact far more than just her future.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

As I read this book, I couldn’t help but wonder how I would feel to find out devastating news that would rip our family to shreds. This is just what happened to Mikayka Gordon. And following her journey to find answers was hurtful yet interesting. The cast of characters were a delightful group and I enjoyed the close knit family. I did feel so bad for Mikayla, my heart was just breaking as she started finding answers to her past life. The author does a very nice job of creating the tension to keep readers interesting, and then weaving the many loose ends and the surprising twists to the story together to create a beautiful ending. This is a beautiful Heartwarming read that I recomend for your enjoyment.

Cornerstone message from the collection: Our identity is found first and foremost in God. Made in His image, we bear His DNA. We are fully, unconditionally loved by our Creator. While society tells us we don’t measure up, we aren’t good enough, we need to conform, God tells us we are loved exactly where we are being who we are. He invites us daily to walk with Him, look to Him for whatever needs we have, and to trust Him no matter what happens to or around us because He is always there for and with us. Despite the negative messages that rain over us, His message shines through – you are loved.
