Synopsis & Book Info:
Julia DeSmit can't wait for her life to begin. After her mother leaves when Julia is nine years old, she's raised by an unassuming, gentle father and a saintly, matriarchal grandmother until her father dies just as Julia is becoming a young adult.
On the cusp of womanhood, Julia feels jaded by her circumstances and longs for a new identity. College seems like the perfect place to start over. But when Julia makes a mistake that will change her life forever, she returns to her grandmother's farm, defeated and convinced of her own worthlessness. Only through the gentle prodding of her loving grandmother does Julia begin to accept the imprint her childhood has left on her life and look for hope in a loving God who longs to make all things new.

My three favorite things about this book are, one; the author is a Canadian citizen. Funny, so am I. Born and bred! Two; the main character Julia goes through the exact same thing I went through at that age... read the story to find out what... and three; Julia, the main character again, and I share a birthday.
Cool reasons right?!
I really enjoyed this story, and am going to see if I can find more by this author.
