- Very Enjoyable Read by Seasons of Opportunities on 4/11/2016
Two of the authors in the books were new to me, Cheryl Wyatt and Cindy Kirk. I had already read a book by Rachel before and really enjoyed it, so I was very excited to be reading this book. I have grown to love novellas because I can usually finish each story in a days time. They are engaging and yet pretty straight to the point, not alot of unnecessary detail, and just enough to keep you interested in what is happening. I loved each story. I don't even know if I really have a favorite. They were all unique in their own way. Each dealt with issues of the heart.
Cindy's book dealt with childhood dis-functional family issues, the scars they leave, the need to make your life secure, mistakes of the past. All portrayed with such sweet grace. Will the couple in this book get past the family issues and be able to make things work?
Rachel's book was just as admirable. Ginger, a beautician with outward scars from a fire, who cannot see herself as anything but ugly, has even deeper inner scars from lies she has believed. Once again, dis-functional family life, a small town scandal, a distorted view of God all make this book an exciting mix of emotions. Will Ginger ever see herself as God sees her, as beautiful? Unconditional love may play a part in helping her find peace.
Last but not least, Cheryl's story. Cheryl addresses bullying, the scars it leaves, unforgiveness, bitterness, and the pain they inflict. Yet, God's grace is amazing and He is capable of healing all wounds no matter how deep or how long they have festered.
Personally, I love plots with character and life lessons. Their words bring encouragement and healing to hurting hearts. The ones that make us look deep inside ourselves and bring out issues we may need to work on. Stories that grow us into better people. I feel like each one of these stories in this book do that! They portray Jesus as healer, redeemer, nurturer of our souls. I believe this is a book I could read more than once and would certainly recommend to my friends.
