Susan Meissner has written an intriguing and inspiring story that was impossible to put down. Alexa Poole has spent a good part of her life finding meaning in supporting her older sister, Rebecca who has an aquired brain injury, resulting from a car accident.
The Poole family has been torn apart following the accident, emotionally and physically, dividing the family. When Rebecca goes missing from her residential centre, Alexa's search for her uncovers more than she ever imagined of past hurts, personal frailty and rediscovered hope. As the mystery of Rebecca's disappearance unfolds so does Alexa's budding relationship with Stephen, a man whose life expresses the healing power of hope.
This is a beautiful story, reminding us that a glimpse of hope and the generosity of forgiveness can bring joy to many a shattered heart.
