About the Author
Shawna's writing journey started with a dream --- an actual, nighttime dream. The story within her dream captivated her to the point that she became obsessive, and in order to put together all the little details and fill in the gaps, she had to write it down. Now she has two books based upon it. Shawna is an Inspirational Romance writer, who loves creating complex, flawed characters, believing that's the secret to making them real. And as an inspirational author, she is able to write about God's Grace through her characters' humanity. She also loves including a good dose of nostalgia in her work, which is why her stories tend to take place in small towns during the first half of the 20th century. When she's not writing, she's spends her time with her husband and three children, reads, makes jewelry, and enjoys life on her family's ranch.

Ms. Williams' novels are often considered "edgy" because she writes about real life. Even so, her books are very tastefully done even though she sometimes approaches situations that are gritty and true to life. In my opinion, this novel was woven through with the theme of trust. When people keep secrets, are they really who they seem to be? Are they hiding behind a smoke screen? When people don't trust others, they often miss out on some of the greatest blessings in life.
The hero and heroine in this novel couldn't be more different. The hero grew up in a mansion, raised by upper society. The heroine grew up poor and destitute, from a family with a less than stellar reputation. She stives to keep her past a secret, which leads to anxiety-laden situations.
I don't want to say much more for fear of giving away Ms. Williams' plot. If you choose to give this one a try, you won't be disappointed. It's part of a series, but if you've not read the others, it can be read and easily understood.
I have to admit when I first got really involved in this story and realized it was mostly going to be about Roger, I was very disappointed. I wasn't real interested in reading about Roger, and all I wanted was more about Jakob and Meri. It didn't take me long though to get invested in Roger's story and I found myself rooting for him to have a happy life and to make peace with his past and his future!
Shawna Williams has a way to her writing that pulls on your heart strings and causes you to think!! The Good Fight is another beautiful tale of forgiveness and honesty. Have you ever been embarrassed by your family so much that you just decided you wouldn't claim them as family? You'd just go on with your life with a new identity and try to forget the shame that person brought to your family name. It was easy to relate to the character Penney that dealt with this shame. I can't imagine the situation she was in and I loved the message of this story. God is in the business of taking broken pieces and turning them in to masterpieces!!
There is so much to love about The Good Fight; we have a mystery thrown in this story that adds a lot of suspense to this story that was delightful. There is also plenty of romance that had my blood pumping and my face a smiling! The characters are flawed, deep and meaningful and the story is unique and entertaining!! I will keep my eyes posted for more by this great author!!
Content: I consider this Edgy Christian Fiction so I believe it's for more of a mature audience.
I received a copy of this book free from the author in exchange for my honest review!! My honest review is this is a great book!! I read all three of these books in 1 week, they were so good!
