The lives of several people become intertwined, the main connection being a little girl named Eden. Eden is the adopted daughter of David and Sarah. But when David is seriously injured in a car accident, her uncle Joseph agrees to take her in, even though he hasn't spoken to his brother in years. Joseph adores Eden, as does half the town, including a mysterious newcomer named Miranda. Miranda has moved to town to find out what happened to the daughter she gave up fo adoption years ago. Eventually truths are revealed, and the people involved have to decide whether to reconcile with each toher or live in bitterness.[return]Nichols creates a cast of compelling characters, especially Eden. I loved her rambles around town, carrying her police radio, and using the information she gleaned to help people. You could see where parts of the story were heading from a long way off, and sometimes the preaching of some of the characters went on for a bit too long. I loved the way that these religious figure were protrayed, as real, with failings and questions. This was a good solid read with some good messages.
