Publisher's Summary

To hear Beatrice Agnew tell it, she entered the world with her mouth tightly shut. Just because she finds out she’s dying doesn’t mean she can’t keep it that way. If any of her children have questions about their daddy and the choices she made after he abandoned them, they’d best take it up with Jesus. There’s no room in Granny B’s house for regrets or hand-holding. Or so she thinks.

Her granddaughter, Evelyn Lester, shows up on Beatrice’s doorstep anyway, burdened with her own secret baggage. Determined to help her Granny B mend fences with her far-flung brood, Evelyn turns her grandmother’s heart and home inside out. Evelyn’s meddling uncovers a tucked-away box of old letters, forcing the two women to wrestle with their past and present pain as they confront the truth Beatrice has worked a lifetime to hide.

Charming, touching and poignant!

The narrator did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life! The story was beautifully woven together in such a way that I was better able to understand my own families idiosyncrasies. Our families are divinely created for our own good for His glory. Loved my time in this story!

Touching story of family and family secrets

This story of a grandmother and granddaughters struggles with love, family, children and relationships was so heart felt. Filled with so many struggles and emotions that only a person that has endured such pain and sorrow could sympathize. Without giving to much away I would recommend if you enjoy good mother/daughter relationship stories. This is the first book I've listened to from this author and looking forward to enjoying her next. Narrator was full of emotion and made an easy listen
