Product Description

Jayne Dennagee has spent her life running from the "doctor death" legacy of her father. His Kervorkian-copycat methods of euthanasia ruined her childhood, covering it in shame. She won't let him steal her future, too. After changing her name to Becka, she assumes a new life and new job caring for the ailing mother of a handsome, young businessman, Isaac Hughes. Becka struggles to sort out her feelings for her new boss just as her patient passes away under unusual circumstances. Suddenly, her past catches up with her and the unnerving details of her heritage make Becka look like a murder suspect. Worse, all sense of home and all hope for love vanish. Even if she could clear her name, a phone call from prison wraps a suffocating shroud around her heart. Her father is out--and he needs her help. Can Becka open her life to the man who has prematurely taken so many? Or will her father's legacy make it impossible to open her heart at all?

Publisher's Description

Where do you turn when changing your name doesn’t give you the anonymity you want? When running hundreds of miles away isn’t far enough? When your search for a place to belong lands you right back where you began?
One phone call destroys all hope Becca Morrow has for a life beyond the shame of her past. Further discredited by the death of her elderly, ailing patient—the mother of the influential businessman, Isaac Hughes—Becca’s new life is shattered and her longing for love slips away. Working to clear her name, Becca must learn to see the beauty in the ugliness of dying, to accept the precious tenderness in forgiveness, and—at last—discover that where she belongs isn’t as much about her family history as it is about her faith in the One to whom she’ll always belong.

    "Longings trump belongings any day."

    Becca Marrow didn't have much in the way of belongings but even worse was her feeling of NOT belonging. When her mother became sick from a soul-stripping and terminal illness called ALS, not only did it eventually take her mother's life but it also took Becca's childhood as she knew it. Just when Becca didn't think her life could get any worse, one life-altering act has her hiding from the past that threatens to destroy her. Eventually Becca learns that no amount of distance or lies can help her hide from a past full of heartache and shame but that it's in acceptance that determines who you'll be tomorrow.

    "She laid Aurelia's Bible on the comforter on her bed. The Comforter on the comforter. Someone should paint a picture of that."

    All My Belongings is one of the best books I have read in a long time. Becca, being a caregiver more than once throughout this book really spoke to the heart of me as a caregiver myself. While caring for a sick loved one can be an arduous task, this book really magnified the beauty of it also. It really helped me see areas where I could improve, especially when I lack patience after long hours of taking care of my mother. It's a very heart-wrenching story practically from the very beginning but there are moments of beauty and laughter, too. While you will need tissues you'll also find yourself smiling when least expected.

    "Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands." ~Isaiah 49:16

    This book is about so many things. It's about finding love even in the things that seem burdensome. Learning to forgive when your life had been shattered. Being a victor and not a victim. Finding hope when you feel there is none. Realizing that, even though you feel like you don't belong, you have always belonged with the One that has loved you since before you were born. This book is so beautifully written and the little spots that brought a smile to my face were dispersed perfectly throughout the story to relieve the emotional tug on my heart strings.

    "Guacamole - Some things are better after they've been pulverized."

    The main characters were amazing and the storyline couldn't have been more perfect. I enjoyed being a part of their life's and will take many Blessings with me. It also contains a little suspense and mystery which I am a fan of. I am so glad I read this book. If you're a caregiver you will appreciate this story very much and it will Bless you many times over. If you have ever had a feeling of not belonging or feeling lost you will love this story and be Blessed by it. But you don't have to be either to love this story. It will speak to the heart in ways that will leave you feeling energized and inspired to be every thing God made you to be. I very highly recommend it to anyone that just loves a great inspirational book!

    "Time is short. Love is forever. Use both well."

    Excitement bubbled within me when I chose Cynthia Ruchti’s newest publication, “All My Belongings” to read. One of first books I won in a giveaway and read on my new Kindle in 2010 was Ms. Ruchti’s debut novel “They Almost Always Come Home.” It was apparent to me then that Cynthia Ruchti was chock-full of the genuine writer’s spirit

    This story is an exceptionally uncommon plot and especially imaginative in detail. The subject matter was a total surprise …..unexpected as so rarely considered a writing topic, except possibly to true experiences reported in the news or horror stories – however my attention was swiftly captured.

    At first my mind could not relate to all the changes Jayne Dennagree, AKA Becca Morrow made in her life to run away with the intention to disappear - even from herself. She really had no choice being the type of person she was to reveal what she had witnessed and blame her father for causing her mother’s death. She had done a very brave and honorable thing – although some might consider her a snitch…..after all, her dad had gone to prison for life.

    The plot begins to thicken when Becca is interviewed by handsome lawyer Isaac Hughes for a caregiver position to his ill and aging mother Aurelia. Becca’s experience of giving care to her mother’s ALS disease gave her the courage to accept the position to care for Aurelia’s Alzheimer’s condition. Becca learns that she can feel new long forgotten emotion of compassion and love, including romantic sensations toward Isaac. Her life has only begun to settle into some normalcy when Aurelia suddenly mysteriously dies and Becca finds herself as the suspect in a murder investigation. Ms. Ruchti’s writing throughout this novel is brilliantly executed with twists and turns of love, compassion, mystery and suspense played out through excellent characterizations of the players she created.

    Becca, after going through heartache, healing and disappointment, illogical happenings, and the journey of life choices soon leads to a beautiful conversion to believing in God…. only after Becca’s realization that she could love and trust another in commitment.

    Assuming everyone wants a happy ending, the story is not finished…there is yet a surprise waiting in relation to another suspenseful matter from Becca’s past. Be prepared for your own emotions to be tendered when Becca becomes the instructor on remarkable forgiveness. Ms. Ruchti, you do not disappoint your readers ...an excellent read...our redeemer has blessed your pen indeed. I look forward to what you will think up next to entertain the reading crowd with the blessing of your distinctive panache.

    I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review.

    Cynthia Ruchti, in her new book, “All My Belongings” published by Abingdon Press takes us into the life of Becca Morrow.

    From the back cover: A new identity can’t protect Becca from a past that refuses to go away.

    Where do you turn when changing your name doesn’t give you the anonymity you want? When running hundreds of miles away isn’t far enough? When your search for a place to belong lands you right back where you began?

    One phone call destroys all the hope Becca Morrow has for a life beyond the shame of her past. Further discredited by the death of her elderly, ailing patient—the mother of the influential businessman, Isaac Hughes—Becca’s new life is shattered and her longing for love slips away. Working to clear her name, Becca must learn to see the beauty in the ugliness of dying, to accept the tenderness in forgiveness, and—at last—discover that where she belongs isn’t as much about her family history as it is about her faith in the One to whom she’ll always belong.

    Identity. What images does this word stir up within your mind? We all have our own personal identity. Is it ours or did we inherit it? These are the questions that Ms. Ruchti is exploring in this book and I think she does an incredible job doing so. Becca is a wonderful character that you wish could be your friend. And then there is the mystery and you want this solved because you know she didn’t do it but who did and why? Ms. Ruchti has given us lots to think about with topics of euthanasia and am I doomed to repeat the sins of my parents? This is a wonderful page turner that will keep you up late at night.

    Can I just say that I love this cover! It is so beautiful and peaceful. It caught my attention for this book and I had to read what inspired the artwork. Having read the story, the cover caught the feel of the story.

    All My Belongings is a story that touched on many things that are very relevant today. Protecting who you are and moving on from past hurts, Alzheimer's and the affect it has on loved ones, and trust. There is so much in this story, but it doesn't bog you down. They mesh well together and they all are apart of each other.

    This was the first book by Cynthia Ruchti that I have read. It was an enjoyable story even with the heavier topics. It wasn't depressing, just a very well written story that touched you as you read. What got to me about the story was how spot on the Alzheimer's part of the story is. I don't have personal experience with Alzheimer's, but there was a loved one who dealt with dementia and both illnesses are similar. It is heartbreaking and yes, as Issac portrayed frustrating at times, especially when you are forgotten. The care of someone you love is hard.

    Becca is a character of strength. She had to do one of the toughest things a person can do, and live with the choices made. It hurt her to do it, but it was the right thing. She then changes her name and her past to put the hardship behind her. She moves to the opposite side of the country, uprooting her whole life for a fresh start. It takes so much strength to do that.

    I enjoyed this story. It had a quick pace and the writing flowed smoothly. The relationship between Issac and Becca was nice. Issac was very stable and a constant for Becca, however, I thought it all happened rather quickly, but it was a sweet aspect of the book.

    Thank you to Litfuse and Abingdon Press, I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
