When Roxy Burke left home for Nashville, she swore she wouldn?t come back until she was a star. But it's desperation that drives this prodigal back to her family, and no one is prepared for what happens next.
Roxy has crashed and burned. She's squandered an inheritance, lived a wild life, and wasted her talent. Desperate and ashamed, she now must return to her father and sister, neither of whom she's talked to in seven years.
Roxy's father welcomes his daughter with love and tenderness. But his easy acceptance is hard on Roxy's sister. After years of being the dutiful daughter, Elena feels resentment and anger toward her wayward sister.
Even more problematic is the reaction of Roxy's former boyfriend. Once a rebel, Wyatt has given his life to Christ and plans to enter the ministry. He and Elena are engaged, but Roxy's return raises questions that could mean the end of Elena's perfect future.
The Burke family faces the return of the prodigal and must reach out for healing. Will they each be able to accept God's grace?

Robin Lee Hatcher is now a new favorite author of mine! I loved Roxy's story. The one line spoken to Elena just stayed with me: "What about grace?"
I'm going to write a song with that line in it one of these days.
