Patti Lacy has written a very moving story of adoption, Reclaiming Lily. But it is not just the adoption that wrenches your soul. It is the love, healing, promises and hope that grab your heart strings.
When a deadly disease strikes the Chang family, Harvard graduate Dr. Kai Chang must alert Lily, the sister Kai left on orphanage steps nine years earlier. Standing in her way is Gloria Powell, a Fort Worth pastor’s wife who distrusts Kai and thinks her entry into Lily’s life will send the troubled seventeen-year-old over the precipice of teenaged angst.
A Texas-sized tornado whirls about the meeting of the Changs and Powells as tempers and cultures collide. Can Kai and Gloria, separated by culture and faith but devoted to Lily, reconcile their differences and trust their dreams to God?
Whether or not you have adopted a child, know friends or family who have, or have been adopted yourself this novel, set in China, Fort Worth, TX, and Boston, MA, will open your eyes to experiences that are not daily occurrences in most families. It asks the question, “When [do you] sacrifice for others and when [do you] allow others to sacrifice for you?”
Julie Lessman, award-winning author, describes Reclaiming Lily:
Riveting. Powerful. Haunting. Reclaiming Lily is a stunning example of just why Patti Lacy is a must-read in Christian fiction today. I dare anyone to pick up this book and not be moved, inspired and changed forever. Truly a talent not to be missed.
