Restoring Love by Jennifer Slattery is a delightful contemporary Christian romance, packed full of Godly themes which I adored.
Restoring Love is about just that – love. A love that loves unconditionally. A love that goes deep. A love that restores and redeems. It is about God’s love for us. No-one is ever beyond God’s love and grace. As each one of us receives His love and grace so we must pass it on. “I wouldn’t be sitting here today if someone hadn’t offered me grace.”
Prayer is powerful. Prayer changes lives. Prayer is talking to God and building a relationship. Prayer is petitioning God on behalf of others. Pray without ceasing and never give up. God always hears our prayers. “What if she prayed? Would God listen?” God always bends an ear to prayer. No one is out of reach of God.
There’s Always Hope
Breaking Free by Jennifer Slattery… wow, what an amazing and powerful read in this contemporary Christian novel.
Alice and Trent have been married for nineteen years and have two boys. Alice organises ladies days at church. On the surface it’s a perfect life but Alice is living a lie. Her life is far from perfect. Her life is crumbling around her. Alice is more concerned with appearances than with being open and honest. “Come on Alice, be real with me.” Alice has buried her head in the sand for the sake of appearances.
Breaking Free shows the power of good friends. Alice has many superficial friends but Beth is her true friend. Beth sees beyond Alice’s fake smiles to the real her. Beth refuses to be pushed away with a smile. “Why are you running from people who can help you most?… Why are you pushing God away?”
