You Are My Only

Emmy Rane is married at nineteen, a mother by twenty. Trapped in a life with a husband she no longer loves, Baby is her only joy. Then one sunny day in September, Emmy takes a few fateful steps away from her baby and returns to find her missing. All that is left behind is a yellow sock.
Fourteen years later, Sophie, a homeschooled, reclusive teenage girl is forced to move frequently and abruptly from place to place, perpetually running from what her mother calls the "No Good." One afternoon, Sophie breaks the rules, ventures out, and meets Joey and his two aunts. It is this loving family that gives Sophie the courage to look into her past. What she discovers changes her world forever. . . .
The riveting stories of Emmy and Sophie—alternating narratives of loss, imprisonment, and freedom regained—escalate with breathless suspense toward an unforgettable climax.

*Thanks To Negalley for giving me the opportunity to review this beautiful story!*
Oh wow! What a read! My words could never begin to describe the beauty and hope this story has. It alternated between two main characters, Emmy and Sophie. The story was just AWEMAZING! The way the author can describe things is stunning. Made me feel like I was right there watching it unfold. I read it out loud to my oldest daughter and the words just flowed off my tongue. My daughter doesn't usually like my style of books but she wanted more of this one as did I. This is not my normal genre of book but I am so glad I read it. This is the first time I have read Beth Kephart and I will for sure be reading her again. I think my only gripe would be I would like to know how Emmy and sophie felt at the end of the story. I would recommend this read.
