Publisher's Summary

NAACP nominee and best-selling author Beverly Jenkins returns to Henry Adams, Kansas - an unforgettable place that anyone would want to call home - with a story of family, friends, and the powerful forces from our past that can irrevocably shape our future.
Mayor Trent July and his wife, Lily, are enjoying life as newlyweds and embracing the challenges and joys that come with being adoptive parents to two wonderful boys. But being a father has inevitably forced him to think about his own birth mother. Raised by his grandmother, Tamar - and, in many ways, the good people of Henry Adams - Trent was blessed with a childhood full of love.
But now he can't help wondering what happened to the scared teenage girl who gave birth to him. And questions that he's never voiced are now begging to be answered: Who was she? Is she still alive? Why didn't she want him?
Trent has always believed no good comes from dwelling on the past, especially when he has a loving family, a strong community, and folks who depend on him. But when the past comes to Henry Adams, Trent has no choice but to face it - and the woman who left him behind.
The truth will shake his very being and everything he thought he knew about life, love, and the bonds that hold families together...yet can also tear them apart.

Fantastic Story!


This series continues to get better and better. I do enjoy the wholesome yet down to earth fun, humor, compassion, high jinx, and most of all the unconditional love and support of these characters offer one another. This series always makes me wish there was a town like this in reality.

Myra Lucretia Taylor is one of my favorite narrators. She did such an awesome job bringing to life the multitude of characters in the fictitious town of Henry Adams and one of the biggest deciding factors as to why I used purchased this audio. I hope she is used for the next one as well.
