Lily Winter's wings are folded so tightly around her daughter that when empty nest arrives, she feels she can no longer fly. But Lily's lonely, widowed life changes in a heartbeat when she goes to visit a woman who is almost a stranger to her---a woman who also happens to be her mother. During their fiery reunion, her mother reveals a dark family secret that she'd been hiding for decades---Lily has an identical twin sister who was put up for adoption when they were just babies.Without looking back, Lily---with her fear of flying---boards a jumbo jet and embarks on a quest to find her sister which leads half way around the world to Melbourne, Australia. Befriended by imprudent Ausie, he might prove to be the key to finding her sister. But her journey becomes a circle that leads her back home to attempt a family reunion and to find the one dream she no longer imagined possible-the chance to fall in love again.

My Thoughts About The Book:
Anita Higman has a gift and I am blessed to have discovered it. This is my first novel by Ms Higman and I am hooked! She has written a story that delves into one of the most painful things experienced in life: broken family relationships. Higman carries her readers through every conceivable emotion and there are times I simply had to close the book and weep. With well-developed characters and a carefully constructed plot, Higman offers her readers a clear picture in novel form of the beautiful transforming and saving gospel of Jesus Christ. The themes of forgiveness, grace, mercy and restoration shine forth. I absolutely loved Lily and Marcus...I think you will too!
