Confident, successful, fun-loving Daphne sets about helping Rachel reinvent herself, and for a while its exciting. But when another tragedy shakes Rachel to the core, what little bit of self-possession she has left begins to unravel. A true-to-life story that will draw you in and keep you biting your nails until the end.
Alison Strobel, whose father, award-winning author Lee Strobel, instilled her with a love of stories at a young age, lives in Colorado with her husband and two daughters. Alison writes womens fiction (Worlds Collide and Violette Between) and authors a blog.
On Rachel's journey from self-righteousness to humility, she experiences the dramas, joys, and tragedies of life. As she travels through the valleys, her new-found friends come alongside her and show God's love through their actions. Matthew 5:16 says, "In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." This is exactly what happens in the book, and Rachels perspective is changed as a result.
Reinventing Rachel stimulates challenging questions about life and faith. It provokes questions about such issues as absolute truth, different religions, and the inevitable "why did God allow this to happen?" Strobel more than adequately responds to these uncertainties, and she handless them with the sensitivity and discretion befitting these topics. Wisdom can be seen within her solid answers.
To make this novel even more outstanding, Strobel creates three-dimensional characters and vivid pictures of reality that one will immediately empathize with. The reader will easily be drawn into the story, and will laugh and cry along with Rachel. The relationships among the other characters are intricate and realistic, as well.
Reinventing Rachel is an amazing and well-written book that will tug at readers' heartstrings. Targeted toward women between the ages of 16-30, this book will not only be enjoyable, but it will be challenging as well. Strobel's novel would be a wonderful addition to any woman's library.
