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.

As a child, I aspired to be just like my mother when I grew up. Especially at Christmas time. She made everything look fun—the cooking and shopping and decorating. She never complained nor acted tired, although I’m sure she was exhausted. I followed her around the...

The Truth About the Biscuit

A reader recently asked me if I would be willing to share my cheese biscuit recipe from Nell and Lady. If you read the novel, you know the one I’m talking about. When I was growing up, every year at Christmastime, I’d wait with great anticipation for my grandmother’s...

I love hearing from readers

Consistently at the top of Kindle and Audible bestseller lists for four years, Ashley Farley has built an impressive following in women's fiction for someone who was a “closet writer” until the moment she clicked publish on Amazon. Her self-published books are written about women and for women, with many of her fans being just like her—mothers with grown children who rarely find heroines of the same age depicted in women's fiction. Readers will discover something of themselves through her characters. Her novels promise a dash of romance and a heaping of Southern-style family drama.
