About this Book
“Randa had never heard that getting over grief was like healing. She missed her mama so much. Was she going to cry forever?”
Reverend Quinn Edwards lives a quiet but busy life pastoring a church in 1950s Chicago, Illinois. One day, the reverend receives a letter from Miranda Shepherd, who says that he is her uncle and that her mother, who had recently died, wanted him to be her guardian.
Quinn, a fifty-two-year-old widower with no children, thought his baby sister, who disappeared over twenty years ago, had died long before. How could he raise a girl—a teenage girl?
Poignant and inspirational, My Name is Randa explores the joys, fears, and challenges that surface when three people, including Nora, Quinn’s secretary, walk together amid grief and loss. Will they learn how to heal, how to love, and how to be a family?
