Summary

In What She Left for Me, a preacher's wife must lean on her battered family for healing.

Jana McGuire is devastated when she returns from an African mission trip only to find her pastor husband has taken all their money and left with his secretary. Left with no worldly possessions, Jana is forced to seek help from her distant mother and her bubbly, welcoming great-aunt Taffy. Jana soon realizes that her mother's cold demeanor hides a tragic past - and that the two must mend their relationships with God and each other.

An award-winning, best-selling author of over 60 books, Tracie Peterson skillfully explores the deepest tests of faith and forgiveness.

Disturbing issues, hopeful outcomes

This book was full of heart wrenching trails and events, it leads you down a road of learning to except what God has dealt you with grace and peace. Definately not for a younger reader, a lot of mature issues.

A wonderful story of forgiveness and restoration!

The book was captivating! I appreciated the way the author touched on tough subjects so carefully but still made her point. But the best part was how she wrapped it all up and brought it all back to Jesus!
