Treasure is found in the most unlikely places.

The envy of all her friends, wife and mother Saphora Warren is the model of southern gentility and accomplishment. She lives in a beautiful Lake Norman home, and has raised three capable adult children. Her husband is a successful plastic surgeon--and a philanderer. It is for that reason that, after hosting a garden party for Southern Living magazine, Saphora packs her bags to escape the trappings of the picturesque-but-vacant life.

Saphora’s departure is interrupted by her husband Bender’s early arrival home, and his words that change her life forever: I’m dying.

Against her desires, Saphora agrees to take care of Bender as he fights his illness. They relocate, at his insistance, to their coastal home in Oriental—the same house she had chosen for her private getaway. When her idyllic retreat is overrun by her grown children, grandchildren, townspeople, relatives, and a precocious neighbor child, Saphora’s escape to paradise is anything but the life she had imagined. As she gropes for evidence of God’s presence amid the turmoil, can she discover that the richest treasures come in surprising packages?

    " The writing style was really hard to get into, but the story itself was very descriptive and redemptive. "

    " Loved this Christian fiction story. It was perfect balance of family love, hope, trials and fear. Such a good story of the Carolina coast. Perfect title of a wife, mother and grandmother. Read this book "

    " I didn't really like this book. I don't know why, it was just a struggle for me to finish it. Maybe I didn't connect well with the characters, because the story itself was fine. "

    " A wealthy couple with not much interest in their marriage anymore find themselves dealing with cancer and looking at the world through different eyes. I liked the beginning and the end, but it really seemed to drag in the middle. "

    " Slow to start, and it has Christian undertones, but its definitely not "in your face". It's really a lovely story of how life's twists can take you to amazing places you could never imagine. "

    " So poorly written in terms of plot (disjointed; unfinished scenes) and wordcraft (misplaced modifiers, split infinitives) as to be distracting and frustrating. I quit before I got halfway and kicked myself for not quitting sooner. "
