With this clue, Anna is desperate to find the soldier who could possibly lead to her estranged son. Is it too late to reclaim the close relationship they once shared?

Mistakenly Anna believed she was responsible for her sons future. In her zealous search to reunite, she finds the unexpected, love and forgiveness. Journey with Anna, as she learns to let go and surrender to divine destiny And give thanks for the gift that she was entrusted.

My Review:

This is an amazingly well written story. Throughout, the author covers a large span of time with this novel, but nothing ever seems rushed or missing. This is a very detailed story that the reader floats through without confusion and with a sense of time flying, as it does when your only child grows up. It comes to a bittersweet conclusion that simultaneously makes you smile and brings you to tears.

Rummler draws you right in with the characters that she creates for this work. I appreciate that each character says true to their speech patterns throughout the novel. I enjoy that each character stays true to the regional dialect from their home town, thus giving each character a unique way of speaking. Also, through the solid belief systems of these wonderful characters the story becomes very religiously based. You get so involved in their lives that you can’t help but feel for these phenomenal characters.

Overall, this was a quick but enjoyable read. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this author and her characters.
