After twenty-one years, a lifetime of pain, and a crumbling life of urban sophistication, Micah Winship is returning home at the request of her dying father, struggling to confront the pain of her past in order to recapture herself, her family, and the love she lost long ago. Reprint.
After twenty-one years Micah (Mike) Winship is making the big move--she's going home for a visit. She hasn't been back since 1963, when her father threw her out, but now he is dying and asking for her. And although she is armed with her succesful journalism career and the strength found after her divorce, she is nearing forty and her sophisticated urban lifestyle is falling apart.
Heading home, Mike is unprepared for a past that has lain in wait for her--one that includes an old love, a spoiled sister, and a plot to seize her family's land. And in trying to understand her long-forgotten self, she learns at last those lessons best learned early about love and loss, family and forgiveness, and the undeniable need for a place called home.
Forced to return to her hometown in Georgia, Mike Winship Singer, a divorced free-lance artist, tries to come to terms with her past and her dying, bigoted father
