Heart Echoes

"The thing that makes John’s writing so good is that every character rings true. They’re all complex, flawed individuals just trying to live their lives as best they can. . Unlike so many Christian novels that preach at the reader, John shows God at work in her characters’ lives without feeling the need for play-by-play commentary."
Susan Ellingburg - for Crosswalk

In the aftermath of a massive Los Angeles earthquake, the perfect existence Teal Morgan-Adams has built begins to crumble. Teal’s daughter, Maiya, is determined to learn the identity of her biological father, despite the loving devotion of her stepdad, River Adams. But that’s a secret Teal hoped would remain buried forever. She has never shared the truth with anyone . . . not her family, not River, not even Maiya’s father.

As Maiya’s rebellion escalates, Teal receives tragic news from her sister and decides to take Maiya home to Cedar Pointe, Oregon, a place she’s avoided most of her adult life. But will her already-strained marriage survive the distance and the secrets she’ll be forced to face there? And can Teal erase the lies that echo in her heart?
