From the best-selling author of War Room comes a Christy Award finalist, now a Lifetime original movie called Child of Grace.
“I believed everything my daddy told me until I walked into Wal-Mart and saw my picture on a little poster . . .” For as long as she can remember, June Bug and her father have traveled the back roads of the country in their beat-up RV, spending many nights parked at Wal-Mart. One morning, as she walks past the greeter at the front of the store, her eyes are drawn to the pictures of missing children, where she is shocked to see herself. This discovery begins a quest for the truth about her father, the mother he rarely speaks about, and ultimately herself. But when her father’s past catches up with them, forces beyond his control draw them back to Dogwood, West Virginia, down a winding path that will change their lives forever.

Editorial Reviews

Chris Fabry (Dogwood)-evangelical fiction author of more than 60 titles and coauthor of Left Behind: The Kid series-offers a lovely, moving, present-day account of sacrifice linking to the famed novel Les Misérables. It all begins in a nondescript Wal-Mart parking lot where nine-year-old June Bug sees an artist's rendition of herself on a missing child poster in the store where they've parked their broken-down RV trailer. With questions galore, June Bug starts pestering her "dad" about their RV vagabond life and where they're headed next. Johnson, little June Bug's father, is obliged to face his past in short order as a series of unexpected media events force his hand and reroute his life. Afraid and emotionally battered, Johnson returns to the "scene of the crime" and discovers what he thought was lost forever. Fabry's retelling of the world-renowned Victor Hugo tale is a stunning success, and readers will find themselves responding with enthusiastic inner applause. (Aug.)

When a young girl recognizes her own face on a poster in a Wal-mart featuring missing children, she begins to wonder where she came from and why she has been traveling around with her father in an old RV. What she will discover is that her father has been running from his past.

I recommend this book.
The story was delightful. The author made you like and care for June Bug, her dad, and the lonely lady who was so kind and caring, the grandparents; everyone in this story "grew" on you, in different ways of course. The ending was emotional and different... I almost cried. I enjoyed it.
