Review
  • Snelling’s previous novels (One Perfect Day) have been popular with readers, and this one, loosely based on her own life, will be no exception. Keira Johnston dreams of visiting Norway, but she must find her birth certificate to apply for a passport. She never guesses that the mysteriously hidden document would reveal a long-buried secret that threatens all she holds dear. Keira’s best friend and sister-in-law, Leah Sorenson, is facing her own drama when her teenage daughter, Kirsten, announces she’s pregnant. Together the friends must navigate a looming family reunion, the first since the death of Keira’s mother, as well as the emotional minefields of an unplanned pregnancy and family secrets. Snelling does a competent job of exploring themes of forgiveness, growth, and redemption as one family moves closer together and nearer to the God who directs their lives. (July) --Staff (Reviewed May 7, 2012) (Publishers Weekly, vol 259, issue 19, p)
  • Following her mother's death, 50-year-old Keira Johnson searches for a copy of her birth certificate so she can travel to Norway for her wedding anniversary and discovers that the man she thought was her father was not. Indeed, she was born out of wedlock. Her brother Marcus, a pastor, is also struggling when he learns his unmarried daughter is pregnant. One thing is for sure: the upcoming family reunion won't be dull! VERDICT This moving story, based on events in the author's life, is sure to please readers of Karen Kingsbury. --Nanci Milone Hill (Reviewed June 15, 2012) (Library Journal, vol 137, issue 11, p66)
