Season Of Hope by Alexa Verde is a sweet contemporary Christian romance. It is the third book in the Rios Azules Christmas series but can be read as a stand-alone. I however enjoyed catching up with familiar faces.
Once more Alexa Verde has written a charming tale that amuses, warms and imparts godly wisdom. “Her faith helped her through the worst moments.” Faith is not a crutch but faith sustains us through life. As we build a relationship with God, we know that we will never be alone. Prayer is our hotline to heaven. We can use prayer to thank God as well as to ask for help.
The novel shows how loss consumes us – either by living lives in isolation or by letting the burden of guilt and unforgiveness consume us. Letting the past impact the present is never good. “Sometimes we let our past impact our future way too much.” We need to give our burdens to God and learn to live and trust again.
