An unplanned pregnancy triggers a woman’s emotional journey in this “intense” and inspiring novel of healing and forgiveness (Lexington Herald Leader).
At a seedy Lexington motel, a “Jane Doe” has been found unconscious, suffering from amnesia, and clinging to life after getting an illegal abortion. To Dr. Cara Land, third-year medical student at University of Kentucky Hospital, the patient has also become a friend she’s desperate to help. When she discovers the woman’s name is Jessica, it’s the first step in her search for a vanished life. Now that Cara’s compassionate Uncle Henry hires her a live-in housekeeper, the penniless Jessica—once adrift—has a tenuous hope for the future.
However, as Jessica’s past slowly comes into focus so do the memories of all she left behind—the husband and children she abandoned, the guilt and shame she’s been trying to outrun, and the fear that there’s no going back. But Jessica has a lot to discover about herself, those she loves, and the power of faith, family and forgiveness.
