Synopsis

When her aunt shows up homeless on her doorstep, Sara suspects anything but a miracle.Sara's an artist with a supportive husband and a house that folks on her block admire outright. But she's restless and bored with life.Then her legendary Aunt Bel shows up, wearing a smile after years without a word.Twenty years ago, fresh out of college, Bel left for a summer missions trip and never returned. Now she's on Sara's doorstep, looking for a place to crash. Sara can't say no to family, even if she hasn't seen Bel since she was a nine-year-old girl. But saying yes to Bel turns Sara's whole precariously-balanced life upside down.The enigmatic Bel gives Sara's family and their community a jolt of fresh thinking and clarity.But Bel is hiding something. Though she won't talk about it, Sara soon learns that Bel has been through a hellish ordeal. And she has the burn marks to prove it."[Samson's] gift for creating unique, flawed character elevates this book above others. Each line has so much truth, and readers will likely ponder different passages long after finishing." -Romantic Times Review, TOP PICK! 4 1/2 stars"Samson's quirky characters will have readers laughing, crying, and shaking their heads in disbelief, sometimes all at the same time. This uplifting read . . . will attract fans of women's fiction and especially works by authors Sarah Jio, Anne Tyler, and Alice Hoffman." -Library Journal
