Season Of Deception by Sara Jane Jacobs continues the story begun in Season Of Hope. It was wonderful to catch up with familiar characters in this Christian romantic suspense.
There are many themes including that of trust. Being thrust into the limelight and the public eye means finding trustworthy people can be hard. Sometimes those closest to us, are the least trustworthy.
This links to both the wicked stepmother and deception themes. The reader is privy to all that is going on, whilst characters were in the dark. In my head I was screaming “Can’t you see what’s going on?” It certainly added to the suspense which built and built – rather like my heart rate and blood pressure!
Blooming And Growing
Season Of Hope by Sara Jane Jacobs is a beautiful Christian story about loyalty, friendship and growing up. I was enthralled with it and could not put it down.
The opening really draws the reader in with its hint of threat and menace. The novel then moves to sometime in the past and the reader feels a build up of tension as we wonder, when will the opening scene be repeated?
God is a God who answers prayer, no matter how young or old we are. “A seed of friendship was planted, God not only answered the prayers of a little girl but He answered the prayers of a little boy too.” He doesn’t always answer as we want Him too but He gives us something far greater.
