Reclaiming Lily

From The Publisher:

A Mother's Love. A Sister's Promise.
Will Two Women Find the Path to Save a Young Woman's Life?

When an insidious genetic disease strikes her family, Harvard graduate Dr. Kai Chang must alert Lily, the sister Kai left on orphanage steps years earlier. Standing in her way are the Powells, Lily's adoptive parents. Gloria Powell, a shy pastor's wife, distrusts Kai and thinks her presence will send their troubled seventeen-year-old over the precipice of teenaged angst. A Texas-sized tornado whirls when Kai summons the Powells to a Fort Worth hotel. Tempers and cultures collide. Can Kai and Gloria, separated by culture and faith but devoted to Lily, reconcile their differences and trust their dreams to God?

~ Cafe Lily's Review:

Two worlds literally collide in this story.  Adoptive parents, Rev. Andrew and Gloria Powell have their world turned upside down when out of nowhere a physician contacts them about their daughter, Joy.  Dr. Kai Chang, has information about a rare inherited disorder, PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) that may be affecting their seventeen year old adopted daughter Joy, who was known as Lily in China. 
And if that revelation isn’t enough, Joy also happens to be Dr. Chang’s birth sister.  With a vested interest in Joy’s well-being, Dr. Chang is also determined to keep her promise to her mother to find and “reclaim Lily”.  An emotional tug of war ensues over this young woman who is loved by so many. 

This book was intense and informative but a little hard for me to get into.  At times the story flipped from the present to the past and I found myself having a difficult time following it.  There were so many layers to peel back that it felt a bit chaotic at times, but this book is getting great reviews from other readers who obviously found their connection to the story.
