For Raine Still…when it rains, it pours. Sadly, she is ready to give up on life as a spirit of depression and loneliness over takes her. In her mind, everything worth living for is now gone with the death of her parents. And even constant phone calls from her best friend, who has moved away, won’t change her made up mind.
Although, Gage Jordan, appears to be well put together on the outside, as a fourteen year Army Veteran and war hero, he continues to struggle with the emotional and constant memory recall from the devastation of losing his best friend.
Raines’ dark cloud, prevents her from being in a place where she can trust God, and in a way, blames Him for taking her parents away. But, God has a plan in place for her and Gage plays the starring role as through his faith, helps her to see the light of The Son again.
Together, along with the sovereign love and grace of God, they are able to not only restore each other’s hope, mend their broken hearts, and heal the wounds of loss, but give of themselves to build a safe haven and offer hope, faith and prosperity to others in need.
Although fictional, with this story, Rhonda, uses many platforms to address real, in-time issues, such as depression, loneliness, homelessness and the lack of care, compassion and compensation for troops who return home after going to battle and risking their lives for their country.
As with all of Rhonda’s creations, her unique gift of making it easy to lose yourself in the characters, will have you laughing out loud as well as shading some tears.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone and especially to those who are dealing with despair. Enjoy as it encourages you to, Live A Little.
P.S. Don’t you just love the names of the main characters? Raine and Gage. How awesome and creative was that?
Gage thinks he has come home from the war and has put away his hero's uniform. He lost a little piece of him self in each of his deployments and he is not sure he can ever fill those empty spaces, until he feels the light he sees in Raine seep deep inside and begin to fill up all of those empty places.
Now he is about to put on another type of uniform, his knight in shining armor. That uniform is shining so brightly even Raine can find her way into the light again.
Live a Little, isn't that what we all desire? Raine and Gage, two halves that are made for each other. Even their names fit Raine/Gage, one is used to measure the other, how very special is that?
Rhonda McKnight has once again taken us to a place that is all to familiar to some of us. A place of loneliness and despair. But she has shown us, once again, that God, in His infinite Grace and Mercy, does not leave us in those dark places without giving us a light to guide our way out.
Way to go Rhonda! I can't hardly wait for Cree to arrive!
The novella is inspirational. There are scriptures to hold any person rock steady in whatever struggle they are facing while reading the book. The relationship between these two people is sweet and romantic. There is also quite a bit to learn about Veterans who come back from Afghanistan and/or Iraq. Their lives are far from easy. Thank goodness for places like Hope House. Live a Little by Rhonda McKnight is filled with hope. There is no need to give up. The sun will shine tomorrow.http://www.rhondamcknight.net/
The story of Raine and Gage appeals to reader on so many levels. It delves into the seriousness of depression and loneliness and how the feelings affect our lives. This story shows that depression is real, loneliness is real and to deal with both it is important to discuss your feelings with someone who can help. Not only is it important to talk with someone but to also have a good relationship with God.
I strongly recommend "Live A Little" as a quick, good, thought-provoking read.
