Ginny L. Yttrup | B&H Books

Ten-year-old
Kaylee Wren has a giant vocabulary—evidence of hours spent pouring through the
pages of her mother’s dictionary. However, Kaylee doesn’t speak, and why would
she?

Abandoned
by her parents, molested by her mother’s former boyfriend time and again in a
cabin in the redwoods, Kaylee has every reason to shut herself away
emotionally. The many words she has collected in her mind are her only
companions, a hollowed redwood her only refuge.

Kaylee’s
future seems hopeless until, from the security of her tree, she spots gifted
artist Sierra Dawn Bickford. Tormented by the death of her newborn daughter
12 years earlier—a result of drug use during pregnancy—Sierra needs a chance to
be the mother she always wanted to be, and she gets that chance with Kaylee.

Beautifully
written, Yttrup’s first novel is also captivating, as the story is told from
both Kaylee’s and Sierra’s perspectives. Words
vividly demonstrates how lives can be saved by the healing power of Jesus.
