All my Belongings (Book Review)

cover graphic for All My BelongingsHave you ever felt so negatively affected by your family that you wish you could change your name and remove your association with your family? That’s how Jayne, the heroine of All my Belongings, felt, and that’s the course of action she took. But her past was not so easily shaken, and changing her name couldn’t erase her roots or her family’s history.

Although I found myself questioning a couple of plot points and character actions, I enjoyed reading this tale that moved me to tears and laughter, occasionally at the same time. The grace and forgiveness so poignantly demonstrated at the end put a lump in my throat. (But those were certainly not tears in my eyes. No, ma’am! That was all allergies.  Ahem.)

About the book: A new life and a new identity can’t protect Becca from a past that refuses to go away.

After spending years running from the shame her father put on her family, Jayne is determined not to let him steal her future in the same way he stole her childhood. Changing her name to Becca Morrow, she moves to California and settles into a new life and new job caring for ailing mother of handsome young businessman, Isaac Hughes.

But just as she’s wondering if she and Isaac are headed for a relationship, Becca’s patient passes away under unusual circumstances. Suddenly, her past catches up with her and the unnerving details of her heritage threaten to destroy all sense of home and all hope for love.

Even if she could clear her name, a phone call wraps a suffocating shroud around her heart. Her estranged father needs her help. But can Becca open her new life to the man who ruined her past?
