Twelve year old Celeste Dusty faces abuse when her parents'
sudden death and the actions of a dishonest child services employee
result in Celeste being taken from idyllic farm life to Lincoln,
Nebraska where she spends the next four years with Aunt Sylvie, a
socialite with a secret vendetta against Celeste's dead mother.
Almost immediately Celeste realizes something evil is about to
touch her life. Along with malicious Aunt Sylvie, Celeste
encounters Pastor Evans. He is good looking and charismatic, but
unfortunately the good Pastor's interest in shy girls has nothing
to do with God.
Celeste grows up, but old wounds are hard to heal-even when she
runs into childhood friend Will Temple. The 'once cocky' Will is
smitten with Celeste's beauty, humor, and innocence. . She feels
unable to commit due to scars left by her abuse, and it may take a
Christmas miracle for her to accept Will's love. Can Celeste move
forward or will the ills done in her past steal future
This is a beautiful story of love and healing written by a
therapist who worked with teenagers on the journey to healing. It
was well researched and includes Nebraska landmarks, historical
events, and the unique farming culture of the 1920s-40's.
