Love On The Rocks by Kerry Evelyn

Perfect Love

Love On The Rocks by Kerry Evelyn is a marvellous contemporary Christian novel and the second book in a series but can be read as a stand-alone as I had not read book one.

Love On The Rocks was unique in that its focus was on a character recovering from a serious brain injury six years earlier. The reader witnesses the lead character’s struggles as she realises she will never be the person she once was. At times it is all too much. “The solution was… not to be found in a shot of whiskey.” Drink is never the answer. Trusting in God and resting in His arms is.

Life sometimes makes no sense even with God. “Why God hadn’t prevented Kat’s accident.” Without God, life makes even less sense. We need to stay close to God. “He would wait for God’s whisper and obey His timing.” God’s timing is always perfect but waiting can be hard.

Within the novel the reader sees the importance of animals. “Animals were powerful therapeutic tools.” People can connect with animals when they cannot connect with people. Animals love unconditionally. They only ask for love in return.

There are many Godly lessons within the novel. There is a discussion on faith and fear. “Only fear or faith can reside in your heart.” We need to realise that fear comes from the enemy. We must cling on to our faith in God when fear threatens to overwhelm.

The novel is about love – a love that thinks of another before self. Love in action as described in 1 Corinthians 13. It is beautiful to witness.

I loved Love On The Rocks. The characters warmed my heart. I sank into the novel and let the action and love wash over me. A wonderful read.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
