Cynthia Ruchti's book When Morning Glories Bloom kind of took the reading world by surprise. I had read her first novel, They Almost Always Come Home, and completely was captured by the story line. So when her third book was announced I was excited to see what she was writing about this time.
In All My Belongings, Becca is on the run from her past and the father who brought shame to her family. She changed her name and started a new life in California. She loves her new job and the elder patient she is caring for. But then her new life is threatened by a past that won't stay hidden.
How many of us have thought about running away instead of facing our problems? It might sound appealing but is never the answer. Cynthia has a way of taking on difficult subjects and writing a beautiful story around it so that you learn a lesson without even realizing you have done so.
