Scarred: Haley’s Journey Home by Kimberly Morrison

Redemption

Scarred: Haley’s Journey Home by Kimberly Morrison is a Christian tale of redemption and our faithful God. It has its roots in the Biblical stories of Job and also the Prodigal Son.

We see how the life choices we make can send us soaring or falling. Once we have reached rock bottom, it is hard to claw ourselves out if the pit in our own strength. People offer us a hand up but we do not always take it.

God offers us the free gift of forgiveness and grace. Often we do not believe that we deserve forgiveness but that is a lie from the enemy. God offers us all His free gift. The question is – will we receive it?

The sins of the fathers may be repeated down the generations but they don’t have to be. We can choose to break the chain.

Phantom Ship In The Desert by Sherri Kukla

Exciting And Entertaining

Phantom Ship In The Desert by Sherri Kukla is a Christian contemporary children’s adventure novel and the third book in the Moto Mysteries series. It can be read as a stand-alone. I enjoyed catching up with familiar faces.

A mystery handed down the years is the focus as Jeremiah and Millie set out to solve it. Millie is particularly tenacious. She is head strong, always pressing forwards sometimes at the detriment to personal safety. She is also aware of her faults, asking God to help her where she is weak.

The search in the story reminds the reader that God searches for us relentlessly and with a passion until He finds us.

We are called to take care of the orphans or those who find themselves parentless through no fault of their own. Arms, hearts and a home are opened as a generational dream is fulfilled. Once more, we remember that we will always find a home in Our Father’s arms.

Behind Closed Doors by Catherine Alliott

Chilling

Behind Closed Doors by Catherine Alliott is a marvellous psychological suspense that will have you glued from the start.

Catherine Alliott has created a perfect cast of eclectic characters. The leading lady really brought out the mothering instincts in me – she was kind and caring, recovering from years of domestic abuse.

Catherine Alliott has sensitively portrayed a damaged marriage with the husband and father wielding the psychological power. The fall-out of the abuse has far reaching victims. The reader witnesses how years of abuse have effects that blur the truth and the lies, so deep is the trauma.

We witness a dreadfully tormented soul who is wracked with guilt that is undeserved.

A Wagon Train Weekend by Stephenia H McGee

The Conductor

A Wagon Train Weekend by Stephenia H McGee is the most charming dual timeline Christian novel. It is the first book in the Back Inn Time series which promises to be fabulous.

Once again Stephenia McGee has created some wonderful warm characters who will delight the reader. They are realistic with their flaws and hang-ups.

Sometimes in life our parents put pressure on us to be someone we are not. We cannot live out the dreams of another. We need to be the person God created us to be.

Our Heavenly Father is our perfect Father. We can trust Him to take care of us even if we cannot see the way ahead. Wherever we are, whatever we face, God is there with us.
