The Oak Leaves
Author: Lang, Maureen
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, 401 pages

The old journal of great ancestor Cosimo Escott leads Talie Ingram to clues surrounding her family history. But all is not as it seems. As the journal unlocks fear in Talie Ingram's heart for her own family's future, she struggles to accept her developmentally delayed child. Talie digs deeper into the past, she will either be broken by the ancient family secret, or between the faded lines of script lies a surprising legacy, but will it be strong enough to carry Talie past the pain of her present day life.

I felt like a kid exploring my great-aunt's attic, as the story shifted back in time from a current day women's fiction novel to a 19th century historical romance Written from the experiences of her own heart, author Maureen Lang penned a tender story that not only describes Fragile X syndrome but also shows that raising a different child isn't the curse secular society would lead us to believe, but is a blessing sent from the heart of God—All and whatever!
