Becky Doughty was raised on the mission field among the indigenous tribes of West Papua. Called to be a different kind of missionary, her ministry is through her pen, and her heart is for for people living on the edge–that fine line where hope and despair meet, where grace becomes truly amazing.
Becky is married to her champion of 25-plus years, Kevin, and they have three children, two of whom are grown and starting families of their own, and they all live within a few miles of each other in Southern California.

I purchased this book during Smashwords' Read an Ebook Week and I am glad I did. Although disappointed at the end, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.
I found the story itself captivating and I really do want to know what happens next in the lives of these people - and, of course, what's really bugging Willow Goodhope. And that's where the disappointment comes in. Like most people, I want closure to this tale, but I am content to wait.
Ms. Doughty is a wonderful storyteller, if a bit overmuch on the religious side, and has woven a compelling story with quite believable characters with whom I can easily identify. We've all known people like these, which makes Doughty's book all the more worth the read.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes an intelligently written and compelling book.
