A Review

“We see our scars and our flaws …
God sees the child he’s always loved.”

Broken homes and environments come in many shapes and sizes. And walking away from that brokenness can take many different directions. This book explores some of the paths that a group of people, all centered around Sloane Ferrell, a well-trained and experienced ER nurse. The book makes clear that recovery is not easy; but from wherever one starts, the journey to peace, grace, and forgiveness is worth the work. Not everyone will make that journey, some may delay moving forward, but peace, grace, and forgiveness are offered to all who are willing to walk it.

The author is a retired ER nurse, now a grandmother. I do not know to what degree her stories reflect her real life, but they do give the reader a glimpse of the “exciting world of emergency medicine” through the eyes of one who has lived it. The book includes enough romance (nothing explicit) to interest the soft-hearted readers, and enough drama and excitement to interest those looking for more adventure.  

This is not the first book by this author that this reviewer has read, but the first in this series. Having said that, the book stands alone and was easily read without any hint of the contents in the two previous books. The book would easily find a place in the community library. Because faith has a role in the story, it could also easily find a place on the shelf of the church library as well.

This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are my own.
