What would you do if you learned your life was a lie?
How far would you go to discover the truth?All her life, Kelli Huddleston has been told the story of a fire--a fire that killed her mother and two siblings when she was an infant. After her father's death though, she uncovers evidence of a different story, including clippings about a boat accident that killed a young father and his infant daughter. And Kelli quietly realizes the story of her life has been a fiction.
Armed with only a few pictures of what she thinks might be her family, Kelli crosses the country to Tennessee, determined to uncover the truth about what happened over twenty years ago in a small southern town. When the trip threatens to open doors to the past better left shut, and her plans for the future are jeopardized, Kelli is faced with an agonizing choice that will change her life forever.

I was blessed with this book by the Bethany House Blogger program in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
I loved, loved, loved this book. It is mysterious, adventurous, emotional; an awesome package all wrapped up in one novel.
I love the characters, the story line, and then ending is amazing. But, be warned, you will most likely need a tissue box, or at least a few to dab the eyes, because while part of the book may consist of a little humor, much of it will be an emotional roller coaster.
I enjoyed the way in which Kathryn incorporated God's love for us, forgiveness of sins, and a community that stood together and supported each other. Trust is also a biggie in this book. When one finds out her whole life was a lie (per say) how can one ever trust again? And who could you trust?
There is so much more I could say about the characters, how they relate to each other, whether Kelli makes good choices or bad, but I really don't want to give this story away. So all I can say is: "Get your copy and read it!" You won't regret it!
