During the summer of 1936, 14 year old Kate Merritt brings home a half-starved 5 year old she found abandoned on the steps of her grandfather's church. Lorena Birdsong's impoverished parents were desperate, and left her there in hopes someone from the church would take her in since they were too poor to care for her. Little does Kate know that this will set into a motion a chain of events which will be life changing and will uncover family secrets.

This is also the story of Kate's troubled father, an alcoholic suffering from PTSD incurred during his time spent in France fighting in WW1, and her mother's emotional withdrawal from it.

I really enjoyed this story, but the ending left me wanting more. I wish there had been another chapter or two to really make the story feel finished.
