#Letting Go, Healing Hearts Series #1
A story on redemption forgiveness with a caution
A great story on how God heals our pasts but was surprised that it dealt with incest. This could be difficult for women who have been victims and don't realize the book addresses this. Great encouragement for counseling should be advised
I would recommend this product to a friend only if they have not been victimized or have sought healing.

Incredible redemptive story!
An incredible story of redemption. Diane doesn't believe God can possibly love her after the life she's chosen, the choices she made, the sins she's committed. But she finds that God doesn't just offer love and forgiveness, He redeems broken lives and disgraceful pasts. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good story of God's redemptive power and love.

Many of you know, I'm a huge Michelle Sutton fan. I must say that this is an absolute favorite! Michelle developed the characters so well that I immediately fell in love with them and couldn't wait to see what happened next in their journey.
This book is very memorable as are the characters. Michelle Sutton does a wonderful job of drawing emotion out of the reader and allowing us to feel deeply for her characters. When I read the cover blurb, I didn't think I'd like this book. I don't have kids, knew nothing about foster care, and really didn't think I'd have anything in common with the characters. It didn't take long for me to become so caught up with them and their lives that I couldn't wait to read the next chapter.
If you like romance with lots of tension, this one's for you!

Great story about overcoming the past
Diane Simmons is a regular woman with a messed up past. Issues with her father clouded her relationships with men. When she learns an awful truth about her current boyfriend and discovers a serious health concern, she loses all hope. Through her struggles to reconcile her past and look forward to a future different than she dreamed, she learns that she must trust, not only God, but men. Her journey is intensely emotional and takes the reader to the edge of her horrible childhood, without overwhelming the reader with too much detail. I felt her plight but it didn't weigh me down.
This story pushes some of the boundaries of traditional Christian romance, but in a very tasteful way.
The romance was spicier than most of the "and then they kissed...fade to black" scenes, but still very pure.
I loved that neither of the main characters had neat perfect lives. They were both a mess, yet they wanted to learn how to trust God more and they wanted to deal with their mess. To me, this is what the real Christian life is like.
