When a shocking revelation shatters her family and her faith,
will truth prevail and mend what was broken?
Life is good for Ronnie Coborn.
She’s newly married to a man who loves her and dotes on her daughter. A man handpicked by Ronnie’s father, a popular pastor at a megachurch who’s been married to her mother for forty years.
Yes, life is good.
Until a shocking revelation exposes the fact that everything in her idyllic life–her marriage, family, and faith–is based on a lie.
In this sequel to Song of Mercy, we learn more about Ronnie’s story. In Season of Hope, Brenda S.Anderson leads Ronnie (and readers) on a quest for Truth. In this quest Ronnie learns who Christ really is. While the book ends with a Christmas wedding (I won’t tell you whose), it is much more than a Christmas story. It is the story of rekindled love, finding love for deep reasons (not just superficial), and falling in love with Christ. I can’t say too much without giving away spoilers but I love the tender relationship building one of the men in this story does to win his wife back. I also love how Andersong tackles the “fluff” of some churches which allows people to go their own way, usually away from the Bible.
Characters in the story do a Bible study of the “I Am” statements of Christ and the names of Jesus. I love it that Anderson has included these at the end of the book so that readers can do their own Bible study on them.
In case you haven’t figured it out, I really did enjoy this book. Anderson has a way of getting to the heart of Christianity. I look forward to reading more of her work in the future.
Season of Hope is part of The Potter’s House Books (Two) series.I would not hesitate to add Song of Mercy to a K-12 Christian school library. It is appropriate for older middle school and up.
