Celebrate Lit Presents: A Place to Call Home by Merrillee Whren

Book Funnel Link:

Back of the Book:

After serving six years in prison for the false charge of manslaughter in the death of his wife, Kurt Jansen must overcome a world of bitterness if he wants to start a new life. But his first priority is securing a restoration job to pay a private investigator to find the real killer and a lawyer to get his kids back.

Hiring a convicted wife-killer isn't what kind-hearted Molly Finnerty bargains for as part of the prison ministry she supports. However, she begins to believe Kurt's claim of innocence and gradually finds a great deal to like about him—perhaps more to like than she should.

Can they overcome the past and find forgiveness and love?

3. A Family to Call Ours

Each book stands alone, but the stories are connected through setting or characters.

My Review

I found this book to be a page-turner, and quickly rooting for the injustice and unfairness of all this young man had lost, and the help he receives from those who live their faith.
The author puts faces on these people and we soon are caring about them, and keep reading hoping the true murderer will be found and all the bad things that have happened will be rectified and Kurt will be reunited with his children.
A really interesting and compelling read, you will have to get to the end for answers, and yes, I did suspect who the real culprit was, but didn’t see what was coming.
Don’t miss this one, people who really live their faith!

I received this book through Celebrate Lit Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
