Overview

The first step to letting go of the past is forgiving it…

Every day of her life Julia Rich lives with the memory of a horrible accident she caused long ago. In the years since, she has tried to hide her guilt in the quiet routine of teaching at a small South Carolina college, avoiding close relationships with family and would-be friends. But one day a phone call from Carmen, a niece she has never met, disrupts her carefully controlled world.

Carmen is a study in contrasts—comical yet wise, sunny yet contemplative, soft yet assertive. As she sets about gently drawing Julia from her self-imposed solitude into a place of hope, she also seeks her own peace for past mistakes.

Together, the two women embark on a journey that takes Julia far from the familiar comfort of home and gives Carmen the courage to open her heart. Together, their sightseeing trip turns into a discovery of truth, grace, redemption, and, finally, love…

    Most family dramas deal with siblings or parents and children, this book was unique in the aunt/niece relationship and I loved it.  As an aunt myself and not a mother, I loved reading a book that solely focused on this unique relationship.  Julia Rich is a professor on the cusp of a sabbatical year and just recently lost her husband, so her quiet house is comforting and unnerving at the same time.  Carmen is the niece who has been wandering for awhile and running away from something that only with the help of her aunt she can confront and find something that she can call home.

    With two very quirky characters, I was nervous this book was going to get artsy and quirky, but the author balanced the quirkiness of the characters with true heart and the perfect developing relationship.  I wasn't quite sure where the book was going to go and then the author threw in the truth to Carmen and from that point on, I was sucked in and couldn't read fast enough!  Although it took some time to get to that point, I don't think I would have wanted it to come any earlier.

    Jamie Langston Turner definitely took off running with this novel. Originally, I was immersed in her main character, Julia Rich’s story. She was leading a rather interesting life, or rather; uninteresting…depending on how you look at things.
    It was evident from the beginning that some serious healing would be taking place between these pages. There was so much tragedy, it seemed overwhelming at times. There were tender moments among the sadness that was quite lovely.
    Julia is about to take a sabbatical from her teaching at a local college for a year, and she has no clue what she is going to do during that time. As she is considering the many options she has she gets a call from her niece, Carmen. Together, they head out on a journey of self-exploration, and it was interesting watching it unfold. I loved Carmen! She was an awesome character. Julia’s entire family has several things going on behind the scenes. Not one character is without some back story.
    The odd part was that I began to not like Julia, but I am unsure why that happened. I was finished with her character by the middle of the book. Thank goodness Carmen had an interesting storyline, or I would have given up on the book.
    I am sure that a lot of people would enjoy this book; it is rich in its writing and style. I just ended the book not feeling very satisfied. I guess it was too sad for me for too long.
