A mother in turmoil. A jaded daughter. A community to help them heal…

Portia Foster has a big heart—so does her mother—yet something is terribly wrong with their relationship. That’s why Portia decides to take a long break on the farm where her mother grew up. But after a short stay, in the religious and ultra conservative home of her grandparents, she begins to question the longstanding walls that separate her mother from everyone in her family.

Portia’s search for answers uncovers a tragedy buried for over forty years. From her discoveries, she begins to see the emotional scars keeping her family apart and the causes of her mother’s turmoil. Urged on by the desire to help her family, this compassionate twenty-seven-year-old sets out on a journey to mend old wounds.

Had Portia known how complicated things would get, she might never have started out on her mission to make things better. Luckily, she finds a community to guide her to more than she imagined was possible.
