Why does bad things happen to good people? We often ask. Does anyone have the answer?
This book yanked on my heart as I read of Olivia's plight. Olivia went through such terrible atrocities. But the shame and pain stayed with her even after she was physically free. She was not completely free until she laid her burdenS down and left it with GOD.
I loved the book even when at times it was difficult to imagine that this could happen. Susan Anne Mason wrote this powerful story about Olivia and the people she met on her journey. Each character really had to look at themselves and evaluate what they stood for. Forgiving ourselves for past behaviors or decisions is difficult to do. We can sometimes forgive others easier than giving ourselves any slack.
Fortunately, this is Book one of the Redemptions Light series. I couldn't put it down. I will make sure that I will get the next one.
I received this book for free to review from Bethany House Publishers.
