Diana Kensingston’s husband recently died in a plane crash, and they’d never been able to have children. Her grief consumes her, and she finds herself turning bitter. When Scottlyn is transferred to her history class, Diana is judgmental at first. However, as she sees how hard Scottlyn is trying to do the right thing and how much she has working against her, her heart goes out. Is God leading her down paths she never expected?
I found only two minor errors. “Summersault” was used for “somersault” and “is” for “it.“ This is a wonderful book full of heart and emotions. It’s short, but there’s more of Diana and Scottlyn’s story to come in the other books in the series, so you'll need to have the next two to finish, but I knew that to start with
Scottlyn Rich is a 16 year old girl who is pregnant resulting from a rape and disowned by her father.
Now living in a home for unwed pregnant mothers and attending a new school, Scottlyn is attempting to move on to make a life for her and her daughter, Mercie.
Diana Kensington's husband died in a plane crash over a year ago and is still waiting for God to answer her prayer, “what now, God?”. She is a high school teacher at Eden Heights Christian Academy and loved her job before her husband's death. When Scottlyn joins her classroom, Diana is at first shocked and judgmental. But after learning the facts about Scottlyn's circumstances, she is filled with compassion and finds she wants to help her young student in whatever way she can. Her prayer is now how to help this young girl. God speaks to Diana's heart and when she takes a step of faith and follows His leading remarkable things happen. In helping Scottlyn, she ultimately begins to heal from her own grief.
God has a plan for these two women that neither of them even could have guessed at. They learn to lean on each other as well as on God. In this short novella we see redemption, compassion, healing, love, God's leading.
