"Tucker, I want to tell you a secret." Miss Ella curled my hand into a fist and showed it to me.

"Life is a battle, but you can't fight it with your fists. You got to fight it with your heart."

An internationally famous photographer, Tucker Mason has traveled the world, capturing things other people don't see. But what Tucker himself can't see is how to let go of the past and forgive his father.

On a sprawling Southern estate, Tucker and his younger brother, Mutt, were raised by their housekeeper, Miss Ella Rain, who loved the motherless boys like her own. Hiring her to take care of Waverly Hall and the boys was the only good thing their father ever did.

When his brother escapes from a mental hospital and an old girlfriend appears with her son and a black eye, Tucker is forced to return home and face the agony of his own tragic past.

Though Miss Ella has been gone for many years, Tuck can still hear her voice--and her prayers. But finding peace and starting anew will take a measure of grace that Tucker scarcely believes in.

Life is filled with th...

Life is filled with things that some call coincidence. Tucker Mason and his brother Matthew Mason were raised by a loving and God fearing woman by the name of Miss Ella.She was hired by their wealthy and abusive father to keep them out of his way. Miss Ella did her best to do accomplish that task, as most interactions with their father Rex had dire results. Miss Ella'sbrother Moses also played an important part in the lives of the two boys. Mose beat the odds and became a doctor. He then went back to the town where he was raised to doctor the people there and to watch over his sister who was also a victim of the boy's abusive father. The boys lived by Miss Ella's rules and listened to her preaching and and they learned about love and being respectable men from her. They had a good friend, Katie who lived nearby. In time Tucker came to view her as more than a friend, but life and cruelty has a way of intervening . As an adult, she too, suffered abuse. For Katie, it was at the hands of her husband. When he turned on their son, she knew she had to leave, to run, for Jase. A day came, when Miss Ella was years dead, her brother retired and the three friends had grown into someone's mother, a photographer of some renown and a recent escapee from an asylum, they find themselves where they had spent the best day of their youth. Together. The result of the excellent, or unfortunate timing is worth reading the book to find out. The story is a good one. The characters realistic and of course flawed. This book might also have you beginning to rethink the definition of the word family. I spells out the meaning of the word love.

An internationally famous photographer, he has traveled the world and seen both the serious and the strange. But when his brother escapes from a mental hospital and an old girlfriend appears with her son and a black eye, Tucker is forced to return home and face the agony of his own strnage past. Back in rural Alabama, Tucker comes to terms with the ghosts he left behind. Miss Ella Rain once loved Tuck and his brother like they were her very own. Hiring her to take care of Waverly Hall and to keep them out of sight was the only good thing their father ever did. And though Miss Ella has been gone for many years, Tuck can still hear her voice.

This book was written by an author that I really enjoy reading. The story was well thought out and I enjoyed most of the characters, even the "ghost." In this story the good wins over the evil and in some places in the story the author lays the goodness on thick. The book was full of human emotions. I will seek out this author again in the future.
