All of My Belongings by Cynthia Ruchti *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
Jayne Dennagree's father was a mercy killer, and she had witnessed him kill her own mother. Her testimony put him away in jail. Now her name was associated with her father, and she had to find a way to escape it. Her friend Geneva has a job opportunity for Jayne, taking care of her elderly sister in California who is suffering from alzheimers. Jayne officially changes her name to Becca and decides to take the job and make a fresh start.
Becca does such a fantastic job with Aurelia and is a huge blessing to her son Issac as he can't be with her 24/7. He owns a realty company and it just hurts him to see his  mom decline like this. I love how the author shows Becca's caring and dedicated side. Becca is leery of getting hurt, leery of others finding out who she really is so she tends to put up a guard against Issac. It is hard for her to keep it there though when he is so kind hearted and attractive!
I really enjoyed this book! It had romance, mystery, suspense and a beautiful look at the forgiveness of God.
