From Jane Jones
Tracy finds a young boy behind the vet clinic one morning with an injured cat and soon realizes that he is in a situation similar to the one she grew up with. She does the right thing and calls protective services and must accept the hard choices that are forced upon her and find her way back to David and the peace she finds in giving her problems to God.
The emotions are presented for both Tracy and David as they struggle to find a way to accept the things they cannot change and the strength to change for the better when they have a choice. I enjoyed this book first because of the emotional presentation of the characters facing difficult but everyday problems and because it was a good clean story too.
