NanceeGrand Rapids, MichiganAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Powerful!November 1, 2016NanceeGrand Rapids, MichiganAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Country music singer, Chase Bradington and Pyper Brock are both haunted by ghosts from the past. Chase nearly crashed his career when a wild ride with alcohol and loose women rocked his world. Pyper's early years held frightful memories of a formidable alcoholic father who beat both her and her mother, and before Pyper's 5th birthday he kicked them both out of their home.
Both Chase and Pyper are very strong characters, as are supporting characters throughout this moving story. Chase discovered God while in rehabilitation, by support of his sponsor, a man Chase had learned to love like a brother.
Pyper's faith is a strong aspect of her character. Her mother and adoptive father taught her about God's love and forgiveness.
Forgiveness is the essence of this powerful and inspiring story of brokenness and despair. The poignancy throughout this book brought me to tears as the past became the present. Faith, tolerance, love and acceptance lead to new directions in the path to healing. A song named "Forgiveness" played a significant role throughout this story, and I wish I could hear the melody that accompanies the beauty of the words that portray the true meaning of forgiveness.
The author has once again created a very touching, heartrending and inspiring tale of life at its lowest point and the healing process developed through faith and redemption. I highly recommend this very sensitive and powerful book!

Forgiveness is a very powerful story by Marianne Evans about our hero , Chase, coming back from rehab from his alcohol addiction .

Sonny4 Stars Out Of 5The freedom of forgiveness!October 15, 2016SonnyQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This was my first book by this author and I loved it. the story made you want to know how all these issues will be resolved. Pyper and Chase are reminders how God is a God of second chances. I love how the characters were recording a song about forgiveness and that was the issue the had to face.
You are reminded that forgiveness is not about the person but about you and your relationship with God. An unforgiving heart only captive is you and not the person who needs to be forgiven.
If you are struggling with forgiveness this book is a great start to letting go and to be free. I was very fortunate to be a part of the launch team for this book and was happy to post this review.
Cindy J5 Stars Out Of 5We all need forgiveness; from God, each other, and ourselvesOctober 14, 2016Cindy JQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Chase Bradington, a well-known country music singer, had a very public fall from grace his alcohol addiction was well-publicized. The book begins with him leaving rehab, focusing on a new start, trying to earn forgiveness. Chase is unwavering in his determination not to relapse. As he moves into his new life, can Chase forgive himself for Shays death? Will he truly accept forgiveness from God? Can he help others forgive?
Pyper Brock is a rising star on the country gospel music horizon. The Christian principles of her family are well-known, but Pypers rocky start in life is not. She has always ignored her past hurts, never dealing with her wounds. When her past is maliciously revealed, will she truly heal this time? Can she forgive the one who hurt her so badly?
Likes: Readers are given a look at alcohol addiction and Chases struggles in the face of temptation, his self-awareness of what areas are his weaknesses, his need for support and accountability, his determination to overcome, and his need for forgiveness both given and received. Readers are also treated to a behind-the-scenes look at life in the music industry. As Chase and Pyper moved forward in their relationship, they were open and honest with each other, not concealing their real selves or portraying themselves as someone they were not. The story had Christian values and morals.
Dislikes: Toward the end of the book, I felt it became repetitive, although people often process things by rehashing them. Also, occasionally a word or comma was missing that caused a minor hiccup in the flow.
This was a powerful book conveying important, life-changing messages. The message of forgiveness, the struggle to forgive horrible hurts, the restoration of relationships, the healing of minds, the coming of peace and joy. I would highly recommend this book, but for late teens and older readers. In my opinion, the themes can be applicable to any addiction, not just alcohol, and to any industry, not just music, so dont let those aspects keep you from reading this book. This book is intense, gripping. I was hooked from the beginning.
I received a copy of this book through Pelican Book Group in exchange for my honest review.
