Lori Copeland's writings are typically light hearted, yet carry a deep message. After reading several serious chapters of this book, I checked the front cover to make sure Lori was the author! It is the story of a young woman, Emma, who believes she has escaped the hurt of her past by running away, making a new life for herself. Fifteen years later, tragedy places her in the center of the pain she sought to deny. Ultimately, the author's typical humor cannot be denied. The addition of humor is equal to the changes in the heart of the characters. An example of this is on page 218, when Sam, the man who jilted Emma long ago, comes for a visit on Christmas morning. It begins with Sam's greeting:
"'How's my girl this morning?'
'I'm not your girl.'
'How's my grouch this morning?'
A great read about hurting and healing from God's love and faithfulness!
