Welcome to Bloomfield, where life is simple, love is real, and stories are shared.

Lynn Myers is still reeling from losing her husband of thirty-five years when word comes that her only sibling, an older brother, has also died. With no one else to settle the estate, she must return to her small hometown of Bloomfield, however briefly, to settle his affairs.

Lynn’s daughter, Rachel, has just graduated from Bible college and with no other commitments comes along to sort through her uncle’s huge old home, right next to the local cemetery.

It isn't long before Rachel has two men -- a handsome CPA and the youth pastor -- seriously vying for her attention. At the same time, Lynn's attention is drawn to a set of journals her brother has left behind detailing a long-standing Bloomfield mystery.

As they pursue solving this mystery, Rachel must make some personal decisions about her future, while Lynn is forced to face unexpected issues from her own past.

My Review:
 The main character Lynn, newly single mom, didn't really care for change. And lately due to the loss of her husband thrives on routine. She completely understands that God has a right to take him home but she misses him terribly. Shortly after the death of her husband she receives even more devastating news concerning her brother Myron and his death. How much is one person suppose to take, anyway? As she gets a envelope in the mail with a letter informing her of Myron's death there is also mention of an inheritance. This takes her completely by surprise, of course.

 About the time learning of the house and property that she just inherited. Her daughter Rachel returns from college with a wild idea of going on an adventure with her mom. I really enjoyed reading about Lynn and Rachel. They reminded of my daughter and I. The author did a really good job bringing the characters to life and definitely proving that even in a fiction book God's ways are still going to be higher than our own.
