About this ebook

NY Times & USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart brings you a Friessen family novel about one man’s choice to come to terms with a past that has secretly haunted him.


Gabriel Friessen can’t shake his growing unrest at the idea that his seemingly perfect life is nothing but a lie he’s spent a lifetime running away from.


Even though he loves his wife and step-daughter and has a family who loves him, he suspects that to move forward, he needs to close the door on his past—namely, on the man who is his father, his real father, who turned his back on his mother and left her alone and pregnant in what seemed to be another lifetime, before he was born.


Just getting on with things is no longer as easy as it has been all his life. Andy Friessen adopted him, gave him his name, raised him, and loved him, but part of Gabriel needs to face the man who turned his mother away. His mother has moved on, and his brothers and sisters would never understand, but Gabriel knows that to find the peace he needs, he must confront his biological father before he spirals any further into guilt and anger.

Gabriel needs closure from his biological father. He has begun to feel that missing from his life, and he won’t feel complete until he’s had the chance to confront him. It’s something his family has trouble understanding, but they’re always there for him. In his head, he understands that, but his heart is struggling to let go of all the hurt his “father” caused. He’s finally ready to get his answers so he can put the pain and anger behind him. This is a deeply emotional story that explores the conflicting feelings that arise when an adopted child needs to reconcile the actions of a biological parent. Gabriel’s feelings of anger, confusion and angst over how his family’s going to react are portrayed in a realistic but compassionate manner. It’s a quick read that will keep your attention from start to finish and a very engaging and engrossing tale that you will not want to put down. I highly recommend this wonderful addition to this exceptional series!
