When Elise's elderly father becomes senile she gets stuck with taking care of him. She resents him for what he did to her when she was young. On top of that, he divorced her mother to marry a girl Elise's age and his new wife made him cut off contact with Elise and her brother for thirty years. Elise feels angry at him for abandoning and neglecting her. Does she want anything to do with him? Now he is at her mercy, does he deserve the kindness he refused to show her? Maybe, as her brother urges, they should just "warehouse the old man." New Every Morning is a story of betrayal and forgiveness in an isolated and dilapidated cabin among the redwoods of northern California. The beauties of nature surrounding the cast of characters contrast with agonizing and surprising plot developments. Will love, frustrated and almost extinguished over decades, rekindle in spite of the painful past? How can Wendell's dementia become the best thing that ever happened to their relationship? This different kind of love story was written by Jessica Renshaw. Born into a family of authors, Jessica's first two books were published while she was a teenager. Her third, Gianna: Aborted and Lived to Tell About It, is the true story of a baby who survived a late-term abortion. It was a Gold Medallion finalist and has sold nearly 250,000 copies. This is her first novel.
