Restoring Love by Jennifer Slattery
Restoring Love, a contemporary novel, offers readers a beautiful picture of God's restoring love. Mitch, a restoration-contractor, and Angela, a wacky neighborhood transplant, find they are both compassionately drawn to helping an abandoned young neighborhood mom. But will their regrets hold them back or unite them and bring redemption?
About The Author
Jennifer Slattery writes missional romance novels for New Hope Publishers. Her debut, "Beyond I Do", releases in August. She also writes Christian Living articles for Crosswalk.com and devotions for her personal blog, JenniferSlatteryLivesOutLoud; Internet Cafe Devotions; and Takin' it to the Streets', a ministry serving Omaha Metro's working poor and homeless.
When she's not writing, she enjoys reading, hanging out at the mall with her teenage daughter, enjoying her real-life hero husband, or serving in her church or community.
You watch God’s hand working in this story, people end up in the right spot at the right time, and don’t even realize, or do they, that they are serving.
Angela was a broken woman but with the help of her daughter and her husband she has earned a college degree and is really, finally putting her life together. Where across the street from where she has landed is a family in crisis, a mother and children fighting to survive, and evil is lurking to pull them to the other side. Then there is a Christian man, he has a broken son, and tries to help others, will he be able to help his own, or will he fall while he is trying.
This story shows how God is working, through others, to help those he needs in his flock, and how nothing is too much for him.
I loved how broken people were able to come together to try and help someone who was even more in need, yes this is what we are meant to do.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher New Hope, and was not required to give a positive review.
