I love the book and will be reading the others in her trilogy as soo as I can highly recommend!
A mystery book with murder and a stalker, trials that would test the faith of anyone. A great read, can't wait for more!
As someone who works with and writes about the abuse of girls and women, and knows that Gods Words is the only healing balm I can offer, I was delighted and surprised to that find author, Lynn Hobbs and I are on the same page. Surprised because for several years, I have found Christian authors setting up situations where biblical solutions happened but found that the use of Scripture was spars or lacking. And delighted to see that in each instance in this well crafted story, the characters `sweet spot' the spot they will treasure and never want to leave is reached when worldly issues that cause incredible pain became Christ's gain.
If you think Christian books are pabulum and have nothing to offer you by way of reality, compassion, or a real world view, in author Lynn Hobbs' Sin, Secrets, and Salvation you will discover a real life gripping drama that can be shared and discussed with your daughter, mother, best friend, or someone you suspect may be experiencing what Susan does.
Paula Rose Michelson is the author of the nonfiction Christian self-help book titled "How Did We Become Angry? Biblical Recovery for Women Suffering from Trauma & Abuse", and sweet Christian romances with a Messianic twist and hint of history books, "Beginning Anew: The Naomi Chronicles, Book One", and "Casa de Naomi: The House of Blessing, Books One and Two".
The plot of Susan Penleigh's abusive marriage and subsequent divorce were well written and kept me turning the pages to see what vile thing would happen next and how she would handle it. The plot twists and turns, both with her divorce and her aging parents, were believable and well thought out. That she managed to come through it all with grace and a large measure of faith was refreshing. Applicable Bible verses, complete with chapter and verse references, was helpful for anyone going through a struggle.
Although I was left with a few questions (the DJs, stalking, drugs, Dillon), I can't wait to read the next book hoping those points will be answered - as well as to find out what happens next to Susan.
All in all, a good job for a first book. Kudos, Lynn!! Keep them coming. :)
