How do you know God loves you?
God says I Love You in many ways, some of which are hard to hear. Georgeanne Peach will ruin everything! At seventeen, Maranatha Winningham admittedly has some trust issues-her mother abandoned her, a neighbor boy abused her for years, her best friend has left for college and God, ever since he spoke to her underneath the pecan tree three years ago, has remained elusive.
So when Miss Peach blows in to take over the only place Natha’s ever called home, leaving a trail of peach fabric swatches and cloying perfume, it’s easy to understand how something like a little ol’ tornado might not be a big deal.
Like every teenager, Natha tries to sort out the confusing layers of love-of friends, of family, of suitors, and desperately, of God. Natha struggles to find herself before she gives into the scared, shadow of a girl in this follow up to the praised Watching the Tree Limbs.
