A bittersweet reunion becomes a time for looking back and starting over in a heartwarming new novel from New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown.

Miss Janie is at the end of a long and full life, but she has no intention of crossing that finish line until she’s found her girls....

It’s been ten years since Teresa and Kayla shook off the dust of Birthright, Texas, went their separate ways, and never looked back. Apart from their foster mom, Miss Janie, they don’t have many fond memories of their hometown. Or of each other. Still, neither can forget the kind woman who opened her home and heart to two teenagers in need.

When a private investigator - who just happens to be Miss Janie’s handsome nephew - tracks them both down and tells them Miss Janie is dying, Teresa and Kayla know deep down that they’ve got to be there for her as she had been there for them.

With Teresa and Kayla together again under the same roof, old tensions may flare, but with Miss Janie’s help, they might rediscover that home is the perfect place for new beginnings.

Family ROMANCE Southern well written

Listeners looking for a story of love, forgiveness, new beginnings and faith will want to grab their earbuds and listen to Miss Janie’s Girls by Carolyn Brown. Be sure to grab a fudge sundae from Dairy Queen and a box of tissues.

Karissa Vacker, did a lovely job with the narration capturing the emotions and accents as Brown transporting us to Birthright, Texas and introduced us to Miss Janie. Her pacing and tones enhanced this well-written story.

Sarah Jane Jackson known to all as Miss Janie has Alzheimer’s and is dying from cancer. She asks Noah, her nephew, to move in, handle her affairs and find her girls. It’s been ten years since Teresa and Kayla left Birthright. The tale that unfolds made me laugh, cry and wanting to hug those I love.

Miss Janie was a hoot, and everyone loves this woman. Teresa, Kayla and Noah each have baggage to overcome. Guilt for not calling & visiting, their own failures and fears, but time under Miss Janie’s roof has a way of mending things.

I loved the story that unfolded and found myself invested in the characters, developing romances and the people of Birthright, Texas. I wanted to pour a cold iced tea and join Miss Janie on the front porch for a spell.

Brown is a wonderful storyteller who brings her characters to life and makes the mundane and tragic beautiful. She weaves in her faith, but it isn’t preachy and felt genuine to her characters and their circumstance.

Pour yourself a tall iced tea and grab your headphones. Let Brown and Vacker transport you to Birthright, Texas.

Grab your earbuds and sit for a spell with Miss Janie's Girls by Carolyn Brown. Narrated by Karissa Vacker #family #romance #WomensFiction #NewRelease Click To Tweet
