Drawing on her own Fragile X experience, Christy Award nominee Maureen Lang tells the griping tale of two women wrestling with the same curse.

Talie Ingram is blessed with a devoted husband, a precious toddler, and a baby on the way. But her ideal world unravels when she uncovers a shocking family secret in the 19th-century journal of her British relative Cosima Escott. Only by reading Cosima's words can Talie make peace with the sobering legacy she has inherited - and already passed on.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Fisher | 1/9/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book, even though my typical read is not Christian/historical/romance. Great life lessons woven into a well-developed fictional read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/6/2014

    " This is a very touching book about a woman discovering her family heritage. I enjoyed the way the book jumped between the main character's life and the life of her great-great-great... grandmother. I was pulled to find out more about each of their stories, and the challenges that this family faced with such courage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joni | 1/2/2014

    " Once again, I found this book in the free section for my kindle. The book went back and forth between a journal and life. This was a Christian book about a family dealing with fragile X. Easy & yet heartbreaking read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 12/2/2013

    " I liked the story set in England rather than the one set in Chicago. It was interesting enough and kept my attention. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wanda | 10/12/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. It tackled a serious issue, fragile X syndrome, in a very unique way, using a fictional story woven from the past and present. I would recommend it, whether or not you are interested in fragile X. It is a great story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lianne | 10/7/2013

    " I enjoyed the unfolding of the story in the Victorian time period, but at times was frustrated at the slow pace in the modern time period. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 7/16/2013

    " I enjoyed this book about a mother who discovers her child has developmental delays. I also liked how the past story was brought in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefanie | 5/24/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candice Carden | 2/28/2013

    " What a great book! Good story flow, and very interesting!!! Now onto the sequel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcia | 12/25/2012

    " I liked this because I am a Special Needs Assistant Scout Master and we have a Fragile X scout in our troop. I was interesting reading about the syndrome. I also liked the way the author tied the past to the present day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean Brazil | 10/26/2012

    " I liked this one. Double story: modern day Chicago and turn of the century women both affected by Fragile X syndrome. Pretty realistic since author has son with Fragile X. This was written by Christian fiction writer, so it got a little preachy from time to time, but still very good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 6/7/2012

    " I really liked this book. It showed two different families in two centuries struggling with mentally handicapped children. I recommend this book to all. "

    " An important story to tell, but a bit corny and preachy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teri Rich | 11/12/2011

    " I thought this book was fantastic. I got it on Amazon.com for free on my Kindle for PC (which is also free). Although I do not enjoy reading on the computer I had to keep reading this book. Even staying up well into the night. "
