The power of words should never be underestimated. They can build a person up or destroy their self-esteem for years. Savannah knows their power firsthand. When the doctor says, “I’m sorry, your daughter didn’t make it.” Or her husband who says he’s found someone else and he’s moving out. Those words take their toll on her heart, and she seeks refuge in the Berkshires. Once there, she slowly comes out of her shell and bonds with her neighbor Clarice, an elderly woman who hears from God on a daily basis and is the steady presence Savannah needs while she heals.

This beautiful, emotion-filled story has characters that feel real. I laughed and cried my way through this book along with Savannah as she learned to trust the God of miracles and endless love. Fans of Michele Phoenix will enjoy this book, and discussion questions are included.
