"A great story with wonderful life lessons . . .."—Books 2 Mention Magazine

After the death of her demanding mother, Sara Jolene Tilman is alone in the world for the first time—and ready for a fresh start. Sara becomes Jolene, and moves into the Thank the Lord Boarding House, an oceanside sanctuary that houses eleven other "misguided souls," as proprietress Fannie Johnson thinks of them. Surrounded by strangers, Jolene sees how socially awkward—and lonely—she really is. Yet, as she naively begins her search for love and belonging, Jolene finds she's not alone. . .

Disillusioned by romance and success, wealthy Richard Peterson has given up his career and registered at Thank the Lord Boarding House. But he is taken aback by the humble surroundings, and the down-to-earth housemates for whom his status means nothing. Still, Richard discovers simple pleasures—and a promising new relationship. Now, with a little help from Fannie, Jolene and Richard will struggle to find themselves—and each other—at last.

"Ms. Forster has given more than a story of redemption; it is a story that encompasses the growth of the inner-self, the cleansing of souls, and an exposure to a time that is strikingly old-fashioned. This story should appeal to the innocence in readers."
—The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers

I ENJOYED READING THIS BOOK. THE MAIN CHARACTER SARA JOLENE TILMAN, AFTER BURYING HER MOTHER, WHO RAISED HER WITH ALOT OF HATRED TOWARDS MEN, MUST NOW TRY TO MAKE IT ON HER OWN. JOLENE NOT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT THE WORLD, OR HOW TO SURVIVE ENDS UP AT THE THANK THE LORD BOARDING HOUSE. WHILE THERE SHE LEARNS HOW TO DEAL WITH MEN AN WOMEN, BUT SHE ALSO LEARNS HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS, AND MORE IMPORTANT, JOLENE LEARNS TO BE A FRIEND. THERE IS A SURPRISE AT THE END, WHEN JOLENE FINDS OUT WHO HER REAL FATHER IS. I THINK THIS IS A GREAT READ. ENJOY.
