About the Book

Destiny Jones is doing just fine on her own, thanks. From her thriving one-woman carpentry business to the loving support of her small-town community, Destiny has constructed a life as sturdy and polished as her best cabinets. Twenty years ago, Destiny’s world collapsed when her mother died and her father, Albert, abandoned his daughter to pursue acting in New York. His devastating exit taught Destiny a lesson in self-reliance that has kept her safe—and alone—ever since.
Now Albert Jones is back, begging for a second chance. Destiny suspects he’s simply staging another performance, starring himself as the prodigal father. Should she act on her misgivings? Or listen to her inner child, who still yearns for a family? When Albert divulges a shocking secret, Destiny’s life will again be turned upside down.

I don't want to say too much, because I don't want to spoil it, but I will say this is a beautifully emotional story about a strong woman named Destiny. This story deals with many issues that we see today, pain, loss, cancer, broken homes, and much more, but it also has a strong theme of hope and love. I loved reading Destiny's story, and seeing how she was able to use the pain of her past, to help those in pain in her present. Although it does use cursing, especially at the start, I highly recommend this to any women's fiction fans who enjoy a tale of hope and second chances, along with new beginnings. 

Kathleen Long’s warm, wise novel reveals the armor that has protected us in the past is often the very thing we must shed to fully live and love.
