Time for another book review. And again I was pleasantly surprised.
Every so often I have a hankering to read a work of fiction. In the past I have enjoyed many of the Amish series, due to the fact they do not have an overabundance of sensuality and romance.
Faithful to Laura, written by Kathleen Fuller, is a book about redemption, forgiveness and true agape love. Little did I know that this book would speak so deep into my own life. It follows the lives of two different families, one of whom is dealing with living the life of an adopted son, and another whose son left the Amish community and has now come back. Both of these hit home. It begs the question, "Is forgiveness that easy?" It answers this question as well.
Yes, forgiveness is easy, when we remember how much we have been forgiven.
Kathleen Fuller does an excellent job of painting a picture of redemption in these people's lives. Though there is much evil and sin committed against others, the example that is given of freedom in forgiveness is awesome.
Others may read this book and be put out that "they lived happily ever after", but I say these are the pictures of how Christ expects us to love and forgive.
This ultimately brings Him glory. That should be our hearts' desires.
As part of the Booksneeze blogging network, I received a free copy of this book.
