An orphan, abandoned and alone. A family, comfortable and secure. A shaky step of faith. An unprecedented complication. A heartbreaking separation. An unyielding quest.A love story that is every Christian's story. Bringing Lucy Home shares the compelling drama of one family's relentless pursuit to bring hope into the life of an orphaned baby girl. In itself, this account would merely duplicate the narratives of other adoptive families. However, Jennifer Phillips' journey unexpectedly detoured into heartache, causing indefinite separation from her husband and three biological children. Her struggle with bureaucratic injustice will make you want to call a politician - and many did just that. Yet, in the end, it was not political or legal pressure that reunited this family. God's hand was at work, using every disappointment to teach a young mother about His unrelenting love. Join the thousands who have walked alongside Jennifer and Lucy as they tried to reunite with their family. Jennifer's humor and vulnerability will captivate your heart and transform her story into your story as your eyes are opened to deep gospel truths that are only unearthed in the soil of suffering. You were lost. You were pursued. You are worth whatever it costs to bring you home, for good.

NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST A powerful, timely debut, The Turner House marks a major new contribution to the story of the American family. The Turners have lived on Yarrow Street for over fifty years. Their house has seen thirteen children grown and gone—and some returned; it has seen the arrival of grandchildren, the fall of Detroit’s East Side, and the loss of a father. The house still stands despite abandoned lots, an embattled city, and the inevitable shift outward to the suburbs. But now, as ailing matriarch Viola finds herself forced to leave her home and move in with her eldest son, the family discovers that the house is worth just a tenth of its mortgage. The Turner children are called home to decide its fate and to reckon with how each of their pasts haunts—and shapes—their family’s future. Praised by Ayana Mathis as “utterly moving” and “un-putdownable,” The Turner House brings us a colorful, complicated brood full of love and pride, sacrifice and unlikely inheritances. It’s a striking examination of the price we pay for our dreams and futures, and the ways in which our families bring us home.
