Read This Book! Promises to Keep
Tillie is the former owner of the house whose children have consigned her to a nursing home and now she is determined to leave and return home. Eventually, they allow her to move in with them and she is literally a God-send, fixing meals, baby-sitting and handing out advice while Roz' newly single mom works.
This is a story of a single mom who flees an abusive husband to save the lives of her children. It is a story that deals with racism, run-aways and extended and created families. This is the story of a man so desperate to get his family back, he will do anything.
Read Promises to Keep by Ann Tatlock. This story will resonate with you for a long time.
