All My Belongings Cynthia Ruchti

Book info and Review
About the book: A new life and a new identity can't protect Becca from a past that refuses to go away.

After spending years running from the shame her father put on her family, Jayne is determined not to let him steal her future in the same way he stole her childhood. Changing her name to Becca Morrow, she moves to California and settles into a new life and new job caring for ailing mother of handsome young businessman, Isaac Hughes.

But just as she's wondering if she and Isaac are headed for a relationship, Becca's patient passes away under unusual circumstances. Suddenly, her past catches up with her and the unnerving details of her heritage threaten to destroy all sense of home and all hope for love.

Even if she could clear her name, a phone call wraps a suffocating shroud around her heart. Her estranged father needs her help. But can Becca open her new life to the man who ruined her past?

My thoughts:  Once upon a time, a very long time ago, I was a  member of Ms. Ruchti's critique group. I remember the beginnings of this story. In its rough form. Ms. Ruchti, way back when, was a talented author. She is even more so now, as this story has an engaging opening, helping us to care more about where Becca  -- Jayne -- was coming from than the original version. 

A romance, ALL MY BELONGINGS deals with issues. And in a way, it was kind of depressing at times.  Weighty. I applaud Geneva for her belief and I applaud Issac for his. The story could've turned ugly. It didn't. 

If you like women's fiction, romance with issues, or are simply a fan of Ms. Ruchti, you won't want to miss ALL MY BELONGINGS. A great writer. Very tightly written. I have no complaints with the writing. At all.  Hard to decide on a rating.  I'm going it 4.5 stars. Great author.
