The Locket by Richard Paul Evans
Have read other works by the author and have enjoyed them.
This one starts out with Ester and she's just come to the mining town, and chapters advance to 1989 where she lives in a nursing home.
Story also follows the boy, Michael who takes a job at a nursing home after losing his mother.
He has a girlfriend Faye who's attending college and she cooks for him often. Her father talks to him and he needs to break away from her or she'll never get any money or endorsements from him for her education.
Story also follows Ester and her life at the mining camp where she cooks and raising her mental child.
Interesting about the locket and the connections through the years...
Circumstances arise and he's up on charges of a man's death in the nursing home. He knows he's being framed...
Powerful touching stories.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

After the death of his mother, Michael Keddington finds employment at the Arcadia nursing home where he befriends Esther, a reclusive but beautiful elderly woman who lives in mourning for her youth and lost love.

Michael faces his own challenges when he loses his greatest love, Faye. When Michael is falsely accused of abusing one of the Arcadia's residents, he learns important lessons about faith and forgiveness from Ester -- and her gift to him of a locket, once symbolic of one person's missed opportuninites, becomes another's second chance.

Richard Paul Evans, author of the beloved #1 bestselling classic The Christmas Box, begins a wonderful new series with this stunning New York Times bestseller -- a bittersweet reminder of life's most precious gifts....
