From Lifetime Career Achievement Rita Award winner, USA Today bestseller, and NAACP Image Award Nominee, a story from Beverly Jenkins’s acclaimed Blessings Series...
This novella—taking place after A Wish and a Prayer and before Heart of Gold —shares the inside story of fan-favorite, Crystal Chambers Brown’s adventures as a runaway.
A safe, stable life should be the everything that teenaged Crystal ever wanted; but though she knows she should count her blessings, part of her wants to scream at all the rules! She loves her new life and family...but she misses her friends and being free.
People say you can never go back home, but Crystal thinks they’re wrong, and heads back to Dallas, to see what she left behind. But on the way, Crystal learns some home truths about the real meaning of home. Sometimes a journey backwards moves you forward...
*Includes a new bonus short story, Transformation.*
