Love Covers All
She Always Wore Red by Angela Hunt is the second book in the Fairlawn trilogy but can be read as a stand-alone. I however enjoyed meeting up with familiar characters and some new ones too. It is a contemporary Christian novel set in and around Fairlawn funeral home.
She Always Wore Red is a compulsive read. It made me laugh and it made me cry. And along with the characters, it strengthened my faith.
A major theme in the novel is that of prayer. Prayer is powerful as it connects us to God. But what happens when we pray and God says no? “She taught me how to thank God for unanswered prayers… because when God says no, I have to trust that His ways are perfect.” Prayer has to be tied in to trust in God. We have to trust even when we do not understand. And we have to realise that God is God and we are not.
