Overview

In the heart of Virginia, where the forests shelter secrets and the creeks run strong and deep ~

Libbie Havens doesn't need anyone. She's fine on her own. When she chances upon the secluded house on Cub Creek she purchases it. She'll show her cousin Liz, and other doubters, that she can rise above her past and live happily and successfully on her own terms.

Libbie has emotional problems born of a troubled childhood. Raised by a grandmother she could never please, Libbie is more comfortable not being comfortable with people. She knows she's different from most. She has special gifts, or curses, but are they real? Or are they products of her history and dysfunction?

At Cub Creek Libbie makes friends and even attracts the romantic interest of two local men, Dan Wheeler and Jim Mitchell. Relationships with her cousin and other family members improve dramatically and Libbie experiences true happiness-until a tragedy occurs.

Having lost the good things gained at Cub Creek, Libbie must find a way out her troubles, to finally rise above them and seize control of her life and future, or risk losing everything, including herself.

    Exceptional book. Good read and it flows. Have decided to seek out her previous four books. Lived in southern Virginia as a young girl back in the early 60's and miss the quiet serene lifestyle. This book brought back so many memories. Thank you Ms. Grace.

    I wanted to be at Cub Creek, to help Libbie with the old house and be her friend. Grace writes such descriptive stories!



    Libbie Havens had a difficult childhood and is trying to overcome the past, and move on with her life. When she happens upon the house, on Cub Creek, it's probably the best thing that ever happened to her. She buys the house, goes about renovating it and starts meeting people and making friends. Then, something happens that threatens to bring everything crashing down around her. I really liked how this house (and it's previous owner) play such a part in the story. (She even inherits a dog, Max, who belonged to the previous owner.) One of the characters, Joyce Inman, is a "real character", someone I'd love to meet.
