Like Fallen Leaves
by Ramona Hollenbeck
Corrupt history has intertwined itself with family problems. While attending college, Jordyn Cardells professor documents information which explains why her dad will not acknowledge her infant son.
Determined to seek her Fathers face, Jordyn works two part-time jobs while avoiding new friends. Even though she thinks herself plain and unattractive, she and her son have captured the attention of Al Michael.
An ATV trip to the mountain ends with a terrible accident. Jordyns dad and brother seek their rescue. Other surprising incidents of the day and the trauma of the wreck. This gives Guy Cardell an opportunity to accept his grandson and to forgive his daughter.
Al and Jordyn grow close as their grandparents entertain and advise them. Life is full of hurdles as Al and Jo clash. He almost loses sight of the gift that our Heavenly Father has planned for him.
