Lily is a single mom to two children. She has been divorced three times and now finds herself alone and pregnant again. A new friend Rose, has encouraged Lily to join Planted! Conflicted between spending time with her kids or going with Rose, Lily finds herself completely out of her depth at the first meeting. Is there really no condemnation for those that love the Lord? Even for herself? Lily finds that hard to believe especially when she comes in contact with the judgmental Diana!
Throughout this story Lily is also in constant danger. The man from the beach knows who she is and where she is. He is determined to get her but it seems like God has different plans. A little bit of romance also goes on between Lily and another character.
This story and author have a LOT of potential. Gripping from the onset, the very definitely Christian based story-line was refreshing in that it wasn't the "same ol', same ol'" that you read in so many other books. However it could use some editing. At times it was a little too wordy not allowing the reader's imagination to kick in. Many times the tenses in the sentences were muddled. For example: "She knew what is going on". I'm pretty sure in Chapter 20 it was the barista talking and not the barrister!
This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review, not necessarily a positive one. I enjoyed the story and getting to know Lily. It just would have been better if a little more polished. Thanks, Liz
This is a very quick, easy read and much of the plot is only briefly sketched. The focus of the book, and definitely its highlight, is Lily's struggle to find strength in her newly-developed faith and to accept that God loves her despite her multiple mistakes. Lily feels inadequate next to all the other women in her study group, and can't believe that she can be forgiven for all the (very normal) things that she's done. While this isn't your typical romantic thriller, it's a very sweet, heartfelt story that highlights the difficulties of working mothers, and is particularly likely to appeal to Christian readers looking for a clean, uplifting read.
I received a review copy of this novel. All opinions are my own.
