Olivia promises to fulfill her dying husband's wish - to scatter his ashes around the world. Wading through grief and depression, she journeys to a remote orphanage in Uganda. Living amongst the children in their threadbare surroundings, she vows to fight for the children's lives as she begins to fight for her own. While Olivia develops a passion for humanitarian work, the lonely director of the orphanage develops a simmering passion for her.
Just as time begins to heal the wounds of Olivia's fragile heart, her world is shattered when she is involved in a violent encounter with an armed rebel group in the picturesque mountains of Uganda. Olivia flees to the safety of Rwanda, where she learns the truth of her husband's unimaginable betrayal.
As Olivia hovers on the brink of an emotional collapse, her broken soul is reawakened with a startling new love - but her life is about to take another dramatic turn as she struggles to survive in a region left torn apart by civil war. It will take every ounce of Olivia's courage to hang on to those she loves the most but it may come at a great cost to all of them.
It's all in the decorations!
Most of undergo the annual decorating of the house, or at the very least a tree. I have more than one home and on years I'm feeling ambitious, I'll decorate them all. However, as time passes and my family becomes more and more busy, It's harder to get the motivation to decorate. Oh the joy of getting everything up is joyful, but then it's the dreaded take-down. I told my husband if I ever build a house, that I'll make sure it has a Christmas tree closet. Imagine how glorious it would be to roll that sucker in and next year, roll it out! At any rate, I take great pride in my tree and go all out. Stuffing it full of ornaments and topping it with glitter pulmes.
Whatever you holiday decorating rituals involve, I hope you find it enjoyable. Happy Holidays!
