Ginger has always lived in Collier County, a small town where everyone knows everything about everyone else, yet her mother’s twin, Julianne was shot, and her death remains an unsolved mystery. After her mother’s sudden death, Ginger’s home is robbed. What were they looking for? Ginger has always had disturbing dreams; recently they’ve become more frequent and have her wondering if any of them really happened. She is now convinced that someone is constantly following her. Her mother’s best friend, Lisbeth, returns to town after having been away for several years. She not saying why she left or where she has been. While helping Lisbeth unpack boxes for her antique store, Ginger comes across her aunt’s journals. She takes them home and gets far more than what she has bargained for.
The characters are great, and I love the fact that Ginger is so strong. She has experienced so much loss at such a young age. And her awkwardness in making friends her own age makes her quite the loner. Lisbeth is also a strong female character in this book and I appreciate the fact that the author uses her as one of the central figures in Ginger’s life. I enjoyed the way God is slowly introduced in the book and to her, and that she realized that He filled the void that she’d had. The mystery had so many twists that it’ll keep you guessing and the end will shock you. This was a great page turner about growing up, secrets, lies, and most importantly, trusting God through all things.
