The Women of Valley View Series Book One
Callie Stillman is a nurse. She feels guilty over an incident that happened six months before...and even though she's a strong Christian...Callie struggles with moving past the tragedy. And now, God is calling her to stick her neck out to help someone else. She is saying no. Benton, her husband, is saying no and yet, she feels God continues to prod her forward.
This is the first book in this series and I really enjoyed it. There are several point of views besides Callie's and her husbands. I've read a few of the later books and they are excellent as well. Christian women who have everyday struggles in their lives.
[This book was given to me as a gift from the author. No review was expected in return, but I have chosen to post one. In no way did the way I received this book influence my opinions in anyway. All opinions are my own]
"Mom, have the courage to go where God is leading you. He won't let you down" p.188
"All we can do is give you guys the chance God wants you to have. What you do with it is up to you." p.231
This is a story of caring about people and situations. Its a story about prayer, healing, hope and live. It is a story about the past, the present and a hoped for future filled with love.
Callie and Benton Stillman are grandparents very active in their community, with their friends, with their church. Six months previous, Callie, overcome with remorse over what she saw was a bad situation after the beating death of a young child released back to a violent situation, is still trying to stop "shoulding" on herself. Quite serindipitiously, she becomes involved in another situation that could tear her world apart. She keeps saying no, keeps working on that wall she has built out of guilt and terror, as God says to trust and listen, and, slowly, with the help of her friends and church family, she begins to let God be in charge while she helps a divided family begin to come together.
It's not all "pie in the sky by and by.." however. It is a small step forward and a larger one back as the family, broken apart both physically and spiritually starts to mend.
I liked this book a lot. I was happily surprised that it wasn't sentimental and syrupy as some of this genre can be. Ms. Srock has reaquainted me with the sweet stories I remember growing up, that with God.....and determination...things can get better.
Characters are a 50 something year old woman trying to forget and forgive herself. A 17 year old sister, an 11 year old sister and a 5 month old baby living on their own trying not to let anyone know of their situation all the while making it work, barely. Highly recommend.
