Through a nostalgic look back, Samantha recognizes the presence of God in an ordinary life. She learns more about herself as a wife and mother who has had her share of sorrow and blessings. As her faith increases, she is able to see her mother through new eyes, leading to reconciliation ...and is reminded of that every time she sees Heaven Shining Through. 

My Rating: 
My Thoughts:
This was a great read. I enjoyed Samantha and seeing her life. She dealt with hardships at home, fell in love with a guy unexpectedly and was blessed with 2 beautiful kids. Samantha is a strong woman who pushed through all the loses. She may not have focused on God, but you could see Him working in her life and focusing on her.

Chad was an awesome guy from start to finish to Samantha. He always did right and apologized even when he did nothing wrong. Samantha's father was a loving man. Samantha's mother was hard woman. There were times I wanted to jump through the page and pop her upside the head, but as the ending drew near I began to love her. She may have been cold to Samantha, but her heart was pure. Wish she showed it more. I adored JR and Kate-D -- they were amazing kids and seemed to have grown into phenomenal adults towards the end.

This story brought tears to my eyes and made me smile. Totally recommend this. Great one-sitter read that will leave you with a warm feeling in your heart.
