Marnie Wittier owns a bookstore/coffee shop and is content with her life as she knows it. She limits the interaction she has with people and is very protective of her past. Marnie deals with regrets, sorrows, and past sins by writing them down and stuffing them in a box, never to be addressed again. Her life begins to unravel when a fifteen-year-old boy with Down's syndrome arrives on her doorstep, turning her world upside down in the process.
Marnie is forced to deal with the hurts and burdens from her past. She no longer is able to sweep them under the rug and forget. In the process of remembering and letting go, she learns about forgiveness and redemption.
I found this book enjoyable to read, although sometimes it bogged down with lengthy flashbacks.
