Synopsis: "Leah Thornton’s life, like her Southern Living home, has great curb appeal. But a paralyzing encounter with a can of frozen apple juice in the supermarket shatters the façade, forcing her to admit that all is not as it appears. When her best friend gets in Leah’s face about her refusal to deal with her life, Leah is forced to make an agonizing decision. Can she sacrifice what she wants to get what she needs? Joy, sadness, and pain converge, testing Leah’s commitment to her marriage, her motherhood, and her faith."

Review: If you only read one book this year this would be "the one". I was really taken aback that a debut book could make one feel all the emotions I felt while reading this. It's far more than a novel on alcoholism addiction but more so on a reawakening to ones life. If you've ever felt pain/depression/or addiction to the point that if you ignore it maybe it will just go away....then this is for you. Awesome story!
