Despite our past sins, our past choices, we are loved by God and cherished as a child of His. Kelli has run from her past, from a potential career as a song writer because she felt God wouldn’t have anything good for her after having an abortion. She returns 7 years later to her hometown to stay with her brother and his wife. Suckered into going to a conference for Christian Music writers, Kelli feels a renewed relationship with God. She runs into her old boyfriend Brian, who left her not wanting anything to do with the baby. He is a Christian Music Rapper who is trying to decide whether to pursue his music career of get his PHD in science. Kelli makes it clear to Brian that she wants nothing to do with him. Both Kelli and Brian walk through the past and counsel with godly role models as they seek the path God would have them go on.
Set in St. Louis the author introduces us to Kelli’s family, and friends of theirs also struggling to feel cherished by God. God uses people in unique situations to share of his grace.
A contemporary fiction novel that can easily reflect some of the past mistakes of its readers, causing them to pause and see that God does indeed forgive, and love unconditionally. I am not always that fond of contemporary Christian novels for some reason. This was a decent book, but not one I would rush out and get.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
