"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

We met Ione in Luecht’s debut novel, Soul Painter. Ione was forced by circumstances into a life she would just as soon leave behind. She overcame pain and loss due to choices she made and, with the help of her friends, found solid footing and built a good life for herself…until her past rears its ugly head and seeks to destroy all she holds dear.
Miriam has grown from the isolated young woman we met early in this trilogy into a refined lady with friends and family she holds close to her heart. Over time her paintings have changed and the time she spends in her studio has dwindled. With a new life growing inside her, Miriam has now set aside her cravings to paint…fearful of what her prophetic artwork will reveal.
As with any good fiction, the bad comes along to challenge the good. The antagonist in this one rises from Ione’s past and sets his twisted mind on reclaiming what he feels he lost because of her. He is a man obsessed; a man bent on revenge; he has become a stalker.
As I read through this book, I could feel the eyes carefully, silently watching. I felt the sick, overwhelming guilt of past actions now playing out in revengeful actions. I was overcome by powerlessness to protect loved ones…the hopelessness of and resolution to defeat. But I also saw hope and love…grace extended where shame resided. And I saw light and victory over darkness.
Soul’s Cry is a suspenseful yet beautiful conclusion to the Portrait’s of Grace trilogy. This is a series I plan to revisit again and again. The characters have become friends, they have become family, and I want to keep in touch. Thank you Cara for sharing these beautiful souls with me and the rest of your readers.
Miriam is a woman who is gifted as a painter. Her paintings are beautiful and she feels alive when she lets herself immerse in her work. As she waits for the birth of her child, she starts to feel a bit lost at times. I loved the mysterious passageways that several characters found themselves wandering in. Miriam almost seems to find solace during her time of exploring the winding hallways. She can sense someone watching her, but can’t convince others of her concerns.
The mystery throughout the book is well written and does add a level of intense drama to the story. I couldn’t wait to see how the story ends, and I was very pleased with the outcome. The author does a good job of keeping readers glued to the story with a heartstopping event that could hurt many people. Both Ione and Miriam are relatable because like many of us, we want to be accepted. The past kept Ione from believing in herself but with God’s forgiveness we can learn to hold our head up and know we are loved.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
The author’s writing is easy to read and fluid. The undercurrent of faith and prayer is subtle but definitely present throughout the book, especially with two of the characters being involved in ministry. The plot is well-crafted and the pace of the story is just right.
Clarence Tamm, the villain of the book, is incredibly scary and eerie. He is an excellent psychopath and truly carries quite a bit of the plot. Ione, his target, is a woman from a broken background finally able to rise above her circumstances with the help of friends who love her. She has always been strong and independent but must learn to accept others’ help and love during the difficult journey she travels in this book. Evan, though he is a love interest, has a smaller role in the story and isn’t quite as developed as Ione or Clarence.
Though this isn’t technically her story, Miriam (who was introduced in the first book Soul Painter) has a journey in this book as well and she learns through repercussions of her doubt and fear that she needs to trust the gift that God has given her.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and also through Celebrate Lit Tour. I was not required to write a favorable review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.
