A Place to Call Home By: Merrillee Whren
I loved this story by Merrillee Whren. It’s a story of hope, faith, and trust. This book is for anyone who has a hard time putting their past behind them. Our past is not to imprison us. Our hope and trust is in God who can use our pasts and insecurities. A Place to Call Home is a feeling you get when you are accepted and loved for who you are. Don’t miss this book and this very special feeling!
Kurt Jansen needed a job. He had served his sentence and was ready to move on. Molly Finnerty needed someone to restore her house. Can Kurt convince her to give him the job? What would she think of him with a prison record, trying to get custody of his kids, and everyone thinking he’d killed his wife? Kurt will have to find a way to trust Molly and believe God will work his problems out.
Molly has a past she keeps hidden from others. She doesn’t trust anyone for fear they will figure out who she is and what she’s done. Steve Barnett has a prison ministry and Molly is friends with his wife. He sends people to Molly to help out. She is a Christian but has a hard time believing God has forgiven her. Can she trust Kurt with her past while helping him deal with his mother-in-law, gain custody of his children, and prove his innocence? What happens when her past jeopardizes Kurt’s future?
Kurt and Molly need to learn to trust each other, others, and especially God. Both are worried about people’s perceptions of them. They can’t rest in the assurance that God has forgiven them and loves them. They are prisoners of their pasts. If you haven’t read A Place to Call Home, get it today! The engaging characters, the descriptive setting, and life events makes this book a must read!
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
