Carmen Marie Thomas
“A moving and powerful story of redeeming love.”
—Donna Yuke, Classroom Teacher
Francine Moonie is a sensitive, awkward, and anxious young girl. Born in Indiana in the 1950s, she is raised in a middle-class Catholic family which has a history of mental illness. Like many teenagers, Francine yearns for freedom and an escape from heartache and emptiness. Finally facing her breaking point, Francine descends on to a path of darkness, which for some is a point of no return.
Continually questioning God’s existence and goodness, she leaves a trail of chaos and uncertainty in her wake. As her life unravels around her, she must confront a key question: are the most bizarre, insignificant experiences of one’s life being silently woven together toward a greater purpose… or can those experiences be disregarded as mere coincidences?
