Publisher's Description

What happens when Pastor Josh Allen is transplanted from Seattle to the Deep South and discovers his daughter is involved with a sexual addict? At the same time, one of his congregants deals with age discrimination, and he and his wife, Leah, discover a problem that will change their lives forever. As his world falls apart around him, Josh must build a new life in a town far from his Boston roots. Allen's Christian faith upholds him while he endures attacks on his simple life of helping others. Each week on the church's stage, he leads his flock, while behind the stage he fights the good fight for his family and his church.

    This novel covers a little over a year in the life of Pastor Josh Allen. He's been transferred to a town in the south after having been in Seattle for some time. We follow along as Josh makes the necessary adjustments as he gets to know his flock.

    Life for the newly arrived pastor is not easy. It seems there is always someone unhappy with what he is doing or not doing. He is a man sensitive to the true needs of people, however, and is usually able to direct them to the right path.

    His personal life is a challenge too. He finds out his college-attending daughter is having an affair - with a man he is counseling because of sexual addictions. He knows a confrontation is necessary. His wife is battling depression and has said some hurtful things to people. And then his bishop calls, wondering if Josh should be moved to a different church.

    This novel reminded me a bit of Father Tim of the Mitford books. Josh is a nice fellow who feels called of God to minister to others. He is gentle and supportive of those in need yet firm with those who need correcting.

    This is a pleasant novel to read. It was encouraging to see how a pastor dedicated to his ministry and his family dealt with all the issues that came to him.

    I received a complimentary digital file of this book from the author for the purpose of this review.
