Sweet Sanctuary ( Audio CD Unabridged)
Wren has tried to shelter her only son from the tumult of the world. Now she''s about to find sanctuary . . . in the last place she ever expected.
In tiny Cottage Cover, on the coast of Maine, Wren Evans is raising her gifted son, Charlie. A single mom, she''s fought hard to give Charlie a stable, secure home life. When a prestigious music academy in Boston expresses interest in Charlie''s talent, Wren is willing to move them again to make his dreams come true.
But Wren doesn''t know that Charlie has been praying for her. And the answer to her son''s prayers will change both of their lives. As Wren plans their move to Boston, life in Maine begins to fall apart. Her job is threatened with budget cuts, and Wren''s grandmother, Ruth, arrives unannounced, with an outlandish request.
Ruth wants the family gathered together one last time, at the summer home where, years before, an accident shattered Wren''s peaceful childhood. In the tumult, Wren finds a friend in a handsome, kind-hearted local, Paul Callahan.
When the family gathers in Cottage Cover, old wounds will be healed, new love will blossom, and the innocent prayers of a child will be answered in a most unexpected way.
From the Publisher:
"Without the storm, how would we know the sweetness of shelter?" -Ruth
Out of the clear blue, Wren's Grandma Ruth arrives on her doorstep, dreaming of a grand party to celebrate her 95th birthday. Wren and her young son Charlie love the idea, but it quickly gets complicated: Ruth wants Wren's estranged siblings to attend and she wants Wren to sing her all-time favorite song: "His Eye Is On The Sparrow." It's the very song Wren sang one fateful day during her childhood . . . and Wren hasn't sung a note since.
Though she's glad to have Grandma back in her life, Wren's sleeping on the couch in her own house now . . . and worried about the expenses piling up. After all, her job at the community library is in jeopardy after budget cuts, and the fancy music program she wants for her son is getting farther and farther out of reach. What's more, Paul-the guy she's drawn to yet avoids-ends up being a major part of an important library project.
With family arriving and old wounds resurfacing, Wren's about to fly when she discovers something special-a gift of grace beyond her wildest dreams.
