A Gift From God
An Anchor On Her Heart by Patricia Lee is a most delightful contemporary Christian novel about love, friendship and our faithful God. It is the first book in the Mended Hearts series and I cannot wait to read the subsequent books.
The novel concerns the sea and a community. The sea is wild and untamed. There will be times when a rescue is needed. This reminds the reader that God rescues us from our situations. We just need to cry out to Him.
Sometimes God is quiet. “She implored heaven to hear her cry… God remained silent.” We must never equate silence with absence. God hears our cries and He always moves on our behalf but not always in the ways we expect.
As parents we long to keep our children safe. As they grow older it is not always possible but we can entrust them into God’s hands and cover them with prayer. “From your lips to God’s ears.”
At the heart of the novel is a beautiful six year old girl with autism. She captures the reader’s heart with her mannerisms. Those who understand her needs offer her love, patience and kindness, and are repaid in kind.
God is the God of restoration. He will restore the lost and the broken in ways we cannot begin to imagine.
There is a wonderful community atmosphere that delights the reader as the welcome extends beyond the pages.
This is my first book by Patricia Lee. I shall certainly be hunting out more, more, more.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
