Lark Summerville’s life has few surprises–and that’s just how she likes it. All she wants is to live out her angst-riddled life in her blue-collar Baltimore neighborhood, punctuated by weekly trips to her local parish, where Lark is organist, and telephone conversations with desperate souls who dial her hotline at 1-777-IPRAY4U.

Then one night, Lark’s home is destroyed by a fire, forcing her out of her comfortable nest and back to the childhood home she has avoided for years. At Stoneleigh House, Lark is surrounded by three very different women: her grown daughter, Flannery; her barely tolerable socialite mother, Leslie; and Prisma Percy, housekeeper and family confidante, all of whom believe Lark was widowed years before.

In this circle of women, Lark’s carefully constructed existence begins to unravel, even as the promise of a new one unfolds. But when her contrite ex-husband shows up, longing to assume his role as Flannery’s father, twenty years after his desertion, Lark finds that she must face her own lies–and her past–before a new life can unfold.

Baker & Taylor
Recluse Lark Summerville is forced to return to her childhood home after a fire to live with her grown daughter, her socialite mother, and the family housekeeper, where she must face her own lies and build a new life.

Initially, I liked this book. Christian fiction that was actually refreshing. I even liked how the ending wasn't completely picture perfect. However, some of the characters did turn me off from this book, namely the protagonist's daughter Flannery and her lack of understanding of her mother Larkspur's grief over the secret she had to keep for 22 years. That abrasive element in my opinion was a stark contrast to the healing of the other relationships in the book. I felt though, that I could really feel what Larkspur was feeling, and how she plunged into the paper thin shell of a human being. Decent story.
