“When Sue, a distrustful group home director, meets Joe, a big-hearted oil rig worker, fireworks fly—but not in a good way! Mix in a handful of ragtag foster kids and nothing is certain. Author Camille Eide skillfully draws us through a story of brokenness and hurt to a place of hope—ever pointing to the true source of healing. And love. Five stars! Highly Recommended.”

Like a roller coaster ride, the story towed me up steep hills, then plunged me downward into deep valleys and carried me through the heartaches, adventures, and the joys of the residents of Juniper Ranch. Truly fine work by Camille Eide. I’m ready for her next book.”
