Love Looks Back – The Search for Siblings
Frank Larue swore he would never go back to his hometown. Too many bad memories, but fate compels him. He must find his brother and sisters from whom he was separated ten years before. He has to make peace with his younger brother’s death and face the man who claimed to be his father. He must right some wrongs and bury the past, but he finds more than he bargained for.
Upon visiting the old homestead barn where the children once took refuge, Frank stumbles upon a chilling scene. A brawl, blood, and a crude cross out back point to a death. Someone had lived – and died there, but who? Why? What happened? The old, cold barn holds some answers but presents more questions. He receives a letter from Guy, his oldest brother, given to him by the people he blames for letting his younger brothers die. The letter brings worse suspicions...his father's killer may have been his oldest brother.
Frank begins a stealthy mission to prove Guy innocent...but he doesn't even know where his brother is. Love Looks Back is a story of healing and forgiveness from life's hurts and disappointments.
