Book Review: All My Belongings

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book: 

A new life and a new identity can't protect Becca from a past that refuses to go away.

After spending years running from the shame her father put on her family, Jayne is determined not to let him steal her future in the same way he stole her childhood. Changing her name to Becca Morrow, she moves to California and settles into a new life and new job caring for ailing mother of handsome young businessman, Isaac Hughes.

But just as she's wondering if she and Isaac are headed for a relationship, Becca's patient passes away under unusual circumstances. Suddenly, her past catches up with her and the unnerving details of her heritage threaten to destroy all sense of home and all hope for love.

Even if she could clear her name, a phone call wraps a suffocating shroud around her heart. Her estranged father needs her help. But can Becca open her new life to the man who ruined her past?

About the author: 
Cynthia Ruchti has more than three decades of radio broadcast experience with "Heartbeat of the Home" radio and currently serves as Professional Relations Liaison for American Christian Fiction Writers.

My Opinion
This is a contemporary Christian fiction book and usually I prefer historical fiction over modern day fiction. However, All My Belongings is one of those books that literally haunts the reader until the book is over (and maybe long after!) and I am so glad I picked it up to read and gave it a chance!

There are so many twists and turns in this book that kept me wanting to read more and more but most of all it was filled with raw emotion from all characters and I could feel their pain with every word! Cynthia Ruchti is very talented to be able to write like that!!

This book is a great mix of everything I love in a good book: emotion, romance, sadness, pain, love, and faith in God that gets us through everything! It was a great reminder that no matter which way our world takes us, there is only ONE that controls it all: God!
