Summary

Summary

        The author of the powerful, best-selling novel The Forgiving Hour is back with another stirring journey into the heart of a woman. As the reluctant newest resident of her grandmother Sophia's Golden T ranch, pampered socialite Karen Butler wants nothing more than to return to L.A. But there's no going back to the past. Her father is dead. Her family home has been sold. Her finances and options are exhausted. And her hope is gone.         Also living at the broken-down ranch is Dusty Stoddard, who operates a summer camp there for troubled teens. In this strange setting, far from everything familiar, Karen is surrounded by people who love God and seek to serve Him. She yearns to escape, to return to her old way of life. Yet the call to her heart is unmistakable. And in the old diaries of a woman who died twenty-eight years before she was born, Karen will discover hidden secrets and amazing truths that will cause her to finally find a way to the greatest love of all.         Powerfully illustrating that God does have a plan for each person's life and can use every individual to fulfill His purposes, Whispers from Yesterday offers a dramatic story of healing, hope, and God's glorious compassion.

Library Journal Review

Society darling Karen Butler falls hard after the public discovery of her father's suicide and his empty bank accounts. With no friends, money, or faith, Karen goes to live with her grandmother Sophia, hoping to inherit her ranch. But the dilapidated ranch is not what Karen expects, and her uncanny resemblance to Sophia's dead sister, Esther, forces Sophia to confront the tragic mistakes of her own past by giving Esther's diaries to Karen. As Karen grows to love the ranch and the ranch manager, Dusty Stoddard, she delves into a past at odds with what she was raised to believe. An emotional look at family disagreements and the lengths to which a woman will go for her faith. For all libraries. (c) Copyright 2010.
