The storyline was one of deceit, lies, hate, family secrets, and adultery. The author's scenes were well written even on the touchiest of subjects such as rape.The story was very emotional, as each character tried to come to grips with their personal sins and ask forgiveness from the people they wronged and also find their way back to God. There was a lot of action and suspense making it a very intense book.
The book was full of life's lessons to be learned and it reminded me of God's power to forgive and of HIS deep love for us.
I must warn you that as you read this gripping story, tears will slowly fall down your cheeks. I could feel the heartbreak as infidelity was exposed and the realization of a life that was full of lies. In the midst of a storm, God is there to help. Each character plays a pivotal role in the story that oozes with pain, secrets, and hope. The author does an excellent job of making each character come to life. I loved visiting the quaint little town and its inviting landscape.
A secret from long ago will slowly start to have a huge explosion of emotions in many lives in the story. Have you tried to hide a sin before? You may think no one will ever find out, but without warning, it rears it's ugly head and spews out hurt so powerful you wonder who will survive. I can remember being in a storm in my life. I felt alone and desperate, just like several characters in the book. I had to reach the bottom of the pit before I asked for help. Who will feel the intense pain and finally give in to God? Will jealousy and anger destroy love or can forgiveness soften a hardened heart? I haven't mentioned any particular character because I loved each one for different reasons. The author writes with such depth I almost couldn't breathe at times. If you want to read a life changing book, this is the perfect one. As I finished the book, I sat quietly for awhile and soaked in the richness of the words and the true meaning of hope and forgiveness.
"Relationships can't endure if there isn't trust."
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review s my own opinion.
First, what I liked – I liked that it made it clear God is in control, even in the greatest wickedness, He doesn’t have to scramble and figure out a Plan B. In the case of this story, a sinful relationship brought about a beautiful, tender hearted woman, who learned to follow the Lord. We, as Christians call it “beauty from ashes”. Very serious issues were handled very well, forgiveness, redemption, sin and its results. I like that it was a modern telling of the story of King David and Bathsheba. King David was greatly loved by God, but he had a terrible family life, as a result of his adultery with Bathsheba and murder of her husband to cover it up. God loved him, but didn’t remove him from the consequences. Sometimes God has mercy and removes consequences and sometimes he does not.
But what the story gained by all the above, it was weakened by being a bit disorganized. The author forewarns the reader that there are many names and many various relationships. I think it would have been better to tell the story of each person, couple or family, from their perspective in a group of chapters in the beginning, not in small portions. I generally like to have some “emotional connection” with the characters and I couldn’t, because I couldn’t keep track of them, due to changing from one to the other every few paragraphs. Then the author could have intermingled their stories a bit, when all events merge into the main part of the story (about 50% in). And end the book with branching out again with a few chapters per individual, couple or family, where we see their lives resolve. As the story is, we jump around among people every few paragraphs, which becomes overwhelming and a bit dizzying. I actually like complicated plots and don’t mind a lot of people, but this was difficult to get through, I found myself skimming a lot, which I don’t usually do.
