All My Belongings by Cynthia Ruchti

About the Book:

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.

My Thoughts:


Cynthia's novels pack a powerful emotional punch, and if you aren't in tears at some point during your reading....I must ask, why not?? 

This story was extra emotional for me, because it dealt with the topic of adoption, as well as trying to distance oneself from the past.  Becca has no resemblance to the man her father became, but she can't seem to get far enough from him so that her life isn't tainted by his reputation.

Caring for Isaac's mother and moving across the country seems like her only choice.  Turns out, it was her best choice.  And, was he powerfully written!  He had my heart from the first page and captured my tears by the final chapter.  What a real example of a Godly man!

Every character in this story will tug at your heart, and you'll not only be entertained, but you will be educated in forgiveness, the fragile state of our humanity and the power of God to change.  I absolutely love Cynthia's novels, and I know you will as well.

My thanks to Abingdon Press via NetGalley for my advance copy of "All My Belongings" in exchange for an honest review.  You can find your copy at your local bookstore, or any online book distributor.  Highly recommended.

Happy Reading!
