Life can turn on a dime. It’s a common cliché, and I’d
heard it often enough. People die or move away. Investments go south. Affairs
end. Loved ones betray us … Stuff happens.
Daisy McCrae’s life is in
tatters. She’s lost her job, broken up with her boyfriend, and has been reduced
to living in the attic above her family’s store, the Union Street Bakery, while
learning the business. Unfortunately, the bakery is in serious hardship. Making
things worse is the constant feeling of not being a “real” McCrae since she was
adopted as a child and has a less-than-perfect relationship with her two sisters.
Then a long-standing elderly
customer passes away, and for some reason bequeaths Daisy a journal dating back
to the 1850s, written by a slave girl named Susie. As she reads, Daisy learns
more about her family—and her own heritage—than she ever dreamed. Haunted by
dreams of the young Susie, who beckons Daisy to “find her,” she is compelled to
look further into the past of the town and her family.
What she finds are the
answers she has longed for her entire life, and a chance to begin again with the
courage and desire she thought she lost for good. Download and start listening now!
