Grace Graham hasn’t been back home or talked with her father in years; this all changes when her sister begs her to come back to Shoal Creek to help take care of their father after he has surgery. Past decisions come back to haunt Grace when her son, Dylan, contracts a dangerous disease and unknowingly spreads it to many other children, including her own illness-prone niece. Will Grace be able to make it through this hard time and will hurts in her relationships with her father and sister ever be healed? The only way for Grace to find out is to stay put and stop running from her problems, but she doesn’t know if she has the strength to do it.
This was an interesting book, especially since it addresses the topic of vaccinations. I never thought I’d see that topic in a novel. While not taking either side in the vaccination argument, Kathryn Cushman brings in some research on the topic that gets the reader thinking. Part of what kept me reading this book was that I wanted to see where the discussion on vaccinations would lead. I wouldn’t say this was the best book I’ve ever read, but it was interesting and it got me thinking about more than just the plot.
This book can be found at Amazon and Barnes and Noble, as well as many other retailers.
