Beyond Borders, Beyond Comprehension,
Heart Unbroken by Alexa Verde is a wonderful contemporary Christian novel about new beginnings and second chances. It is the third book in the Potter’s House series but can be read as a stand-alone.
The novel is gritty and realistic, having its focus on the world of drug abuse. It is a hard world. “In the country of heroin, pain rules. Hope is a rare guest.” Drug addicts need hope and help to get them into rehab.
In the world of the addict, everything takes a back seat. “Her maternal instinct had been overpowered by the overwhelming cravings.” Addicts are always in recovery, never knowing when the next craving will hit. The good news is that everyone can have a fresh start in Jesus. No one is ever too far from His love. “God doesn’t give up on somebody just because that person messed up.” God is always with us. He is just a prayer away. “After all she’d done, would her prayers be heard?” God always hears and answers our prayers.
Drug addicts mess up lives. Not just their own, innocents get caught up in the fall out.
Love and care can move mountains. This is explored within the novel.
Heart Unbroken is a powerful read. It is not always pleasant. We live in a fallen world and we need authors who will tackle real life issues with sensitivity. We must not shy away from modern day issues. People hurt and people suffer. We need to walk alongside others and show them the light of Jesus.
Heart Unbroken is grounded in God’s all consuming, never failing love.
