Under the Burr Oak Tree
Just when Lindsey Miller has overcome the shattered dreams of her past, the man who shattered those dreams shows up again. Just when Lindsey's sister has erased the sordid life she used to lead, a young man with high ideals asks her to become part of his life. Forgetting and moving on requires all of them to learn how to forgive family, friends, each other, and themselves before they can be happy. Forgiveness must be offered and accepted, but once it is, it consumes everything in its path and lets new life begin again. Under the Burr Oak Tree is a story of forgiveness, the grace that allows it, and the love that can grow out of it. Full of the hope and strength of a young woman who dares to dream of a better life, and laced with the humor she uses as both a sword and a shield to rescue her sister, her mother, and ultimately herself, the story argues that good guys still exist, and they don't always finish last.
