From the Back Cover

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Leigh blinked back tears and heartfelt regret as she read Jake's text over and over.  She glanced out the window again, assuming Jake would have no idea she was watching him from the darkened window across the street.  The shadow in his room moved again and she gasped when he pushed the curtains aside.  She saw his face staring back at her as if he knew she was there.

"Lynn Dove weaves contemporary teen issues with excitement and action around every corner.  She'll leave you breathless for the final installment of this three-part series."  - Shellie Neumeier, Author of Driven.

"(These are books) you'll want to stuff stockings with, give as grad gifts, a birthday present, or 'just because.'...Buy in bunches!"  - Connie Cavanaugh, Author of Following God One Yes at a Time

Format: Paperback
Lynn Dove's Wounded trilogy ends with this novel, Love the Wounded. I didn't read the earlier two, but Love the Wounded stands alone pretty well and has an enjoyable sense of completion--plus a picture-perfect ending. Of course, there are parts of the story where readers might feel they're missing details, as present tragedies pile on past events. But the author includes plenty of well-timed and well-edited backstory so the reader never feels overwhelmed with what's been missed or what's being told--overwhelmed perhaps by the emotions and deep insights into character's feelings, but not by details.

The novel is a Christian family drama where real-life characters find their faith tested by real-life issues. Bullying takes center stage with one of the protagonists, but teen pregnancy, cancer, drunkenness, car accidents and more all play their part in small town drama. Sometimes it's hard to believe so many things can go wrong, but those with faith consistently turn to prayer for help, and those without consistently learn they must be missing something.

The teen dialog is convincing. Adults have plausibly heavy-handed determination as they teach. And the lesson that "Bullying will only stop if more students start reporting incidents" is well-drawn. Not one for non-Christians, but the series is enjoyably dark, well-lit with hope, and filled with memorable people who really do grow.

Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy of this novel by the author with a request for my honest review.

There are many great things I could write about this book, but what I most appreciated about it was how the author took a very serious subject (bullying) and wove a great story around it. In some ways the reader could consider this a "self-help" book because it really does show young adults how to deal with bullying. But since it is written in a story format, it does not sound "preachy" at all, which a typical self-help book might.

I gave the entire set to a young man in my church who had been bullied bad. It helped him a lot and he then used the ideas to help another young man in our church who was also being bullied. For that reason, I highly reccommend not only this book, but the entire three part series.

Format: Paperback
Love the Wounded by Lynn Dove is the third book in the Wounded Trilogy, but the book is one that can easily be read as a stand-alone novel. Love the Wounded is a powerful story of love, life and forgiveness in the lives of teens whose worlds are intertwined in ways they could never have imagined.

Full of honest and raw emotions, Love the Wounded is a book which touches on a number of sensitive teen issues. -- Author Lynn Dove has done a tremendous job bringing her characters to life as they work through struggles, heartache and healing. As Christian fiction goes, this book has much to offer to young adults.
