A Novel of Hope and Renewal

 

Faith Neilson, survivor of an abusive marriage, has finally discovered her life’s passion. She’s established a shelter for women in crisis. Not only for homeless women but also for those who are suffering from abuse, dealing with addiction, or coping with grief over the loss of a loved one. Faith’s mission, when she opens her doors, is to help the residents mend their broken hearts. In the midst of that challenge, she struggles to find additional funding to keep her program afloat while balancing the demands of career and home.

This standalone spinoff of the bestselling Sweeney Sisters series presents a cast of memorable characters. Tilda, who is convinced she has Alzheimer’s. Molly, a street-smart homeless woman who has an endearing childlike quality. Caroline, whose gardening hobby has become an obsession since the death of her son. And Jenny, a young woman whose anger at her husband for having an affair with her best friend has spiraled out of control.

Join these women in their day-to-day lives as they endeavor to move from uncertainty toward independence. When the actions of a young resident’s abusive stepfather threaten the residents’ lives as well as the future of the shelter, tension mounts and bonds of friendship are tested in a dramatic conclusion.

Ashley’s stories are always full of love and kindness, even as her characters go through their trials and tribulations. And they always seem to come back to the importance of being surrounded by family—families related by love or just simply by caring for one another.

Great character development of women helping women at a home established just for women needing help getting recharged and beginning again. I loved the story and the idea and felt like I was part of the friendships made. This author has a gift of making you fall in love with the characters and wanting more. 

Sandy

This was a wonderful novel based on women who needed a little help to get back on track again and live fulfilling lives. Ashley Farley has such a wonderful talent of creating characters that these women seemed like women that I know.

The characters’ personalities are real, not the figment of an author’s imagination.
