Where do you turn when changing your name doesn't give you the anonymity you want? When running hundreds of miles away isn't far enough? When your search for a place to belong lands you right back where you began?
One phone call destroys all hope Becca Morrow has for a life beyond the shame of her past. Further discredited by the death of her elderly, ailing patient--the mother of the influential businessman, Isaac Hughes--Becca's new life is shattered and her longing for love slips away. Working to clear her name, Becca must learn to see the beauty in the ugliness of dying, to accept the precious tenderness in forgiveness, and--at last--discover that where she belongs isn't as much about her family history as it is about her faith in the One to whom she'll always belong.

In this stark, uplifting journey through the world of caregiving, Ruchti (When the Morning Glory Blooms) invites readers to a deeper examination of self and personal relationships. Becca Morrow, aka “Jayne Dennagee,” is a young woman whose dreams of becoming a nurse are overshadowed by a traumatic past. Traveling halfway across the country under a new identity to escape the infamy of her family history, she settles in to a position as a companion to an elderly Alzheimer’s patient, mother to successful young businessman Isaac Hughes to whom she is attracted. When her past catches up with them, however, Becca and Isaac must turn to each other for understanding and strength in the face of overwhelming grief. The often painful, rewarding role of a caregiver is examined and exquisitely detailed, balancing a beautifully written, engaging romance with a message of poise and grace in the face of adversity.
