This is the 2nd time I've read this series of two books. I loved them both! There's a little bit of everybody that you know in these stories. This is an allegorical tale that follows a group of those who are broken and abused in one way or another. Mercifully, God comes to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. He loves, redeems, and gives them new life and hope for their futures.
In this, the second book, it continues the journey they all began, as they now have to learn that even though their lives have been made new and whole again, this world will still offer them challenges and trials. In the midst of those trials, they find they have choices to make as to whether or not they will continue to walk in their new found freedom in Jesus Christ.
