All My Belongings is a beautiful story packed full of emotions -- from one end of the spectrum to the other. There were moments that made me cry and others that brought a smile to my face. And I'm not sure when I've read anything that tackled so many tough topics, but with such sensitivity and grace.
It took just a little while into the story for me to really connect with Jayne/Becca, but from then on I was definitely hooked. The story was so well written that it was very easy to feel with Becca as she grew in her relationship with Isaac, and more importantly in her relationship with God. There were a few twists that kept the story very engaging, and the last twist -- well, that one I really didn't see coming, but I'm so glad it came.
This is the first book I've read by Cynthia Ruchti, but if it is typical of her storytelling, I certainly hope it is not my last.
Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest 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?
