Overview

When I was twelve, I made a naïve, yet desperate pact with God to keep my ailing mother alive. It was the first time I'd ventured something so brazen--making a contract with the Almighty...



So begins the story of Becky Owens, a talented and passionate young pianist on the verge of adolescence when she learns the devastating news of her mother's critical illness. As the daughter of a country preacher in Lancaster County, Becky knows well the significance of sacrifice, and in her bargain with God, she vows to exchange her most cherished possession for her mother's life.Hospital rules only add to Becky's sorrow--twelve-year-olds aren't allowed to visit, so Becky and her mother must share tearful smiles through Lancaster General's sunroom window. But a realization of the power of music and a lesson in unconditional love compel Becky to rethink her "deal" with God, and the sunroom becomes a place where miracles happen...

    Wonderful Read

    This book is written with love and passion. I could not put this book down and I loved the thoughts and reason for this book. I even cried tears of saddness and joy. This book changed what I read and I will always remember the words of this book.

    Definite read! Delightful quick read and good ending

    I thought that this would be a sad story, but it is one of faith and trust. I am a great grandma and this book came to my attention because 2 Mom's in our family are undergoing cancer treatment. The author didn't dwell on the patient and treatment, but rather I received an insight as to how my granddaughters could or might relate to Becky. Good read only 108 pages.

    The Sunroom

    I have to say that this book started out on the down side for me until I started getting into it more. You've got to give it a chance because you start to understand how difficult life can be, emotionally & physically on a child that is seeing a devasting illness first hand.
    It can be a wake up call for many people, that children are involved & and greatly effected by family issues to.
    It was good to view this story thru a childs eyes.
    The story also shows how families can pull together, that you don't have to go thru difficult issues alone.

    Okay

    I guess I am so used to her novels of the amish, this one seemed to disappoint me. I felt like it skipped about too much.

    This book left me tears, I loved it. Right now my great-grandmot

    This book left me tears, I loved it. Right now my great-grandmother is on dialysis and I know is not the same as cancer.
    But this book has gave me a hole different perspective. I recommend this book to anyone that loves to read or has a family
    member who has cancer.
