Lucinda's Defender by Blossom Turner


The young and impetuous Lucinda Williams, through a series of bad decisions, is now in a situation she never dreamed conceivable—an unplanned baby and marriage to a man who proves to be far darker than she ever imagined. Pain is a cruel teacher but brings instant maturity.

Joseph Manning, a childhood friend who watched the love of his life leave, is heartbroken to find the bruised waif of a girl he rescues less than a year later. What atrocities did she experience to change the vivacious, bubbly soul into this shell of hopelessness? Broken. Bruised. Beaten. Does love really have the power to heal all wounds?

Lucinda marvels at how Joseph effortlessly whittles his way back into her heart and that of her child with kindness and respect. But she has a secret far too dark to allow the kind Joseph into her life. He deserves so much better than the likes of her. Is love strong enough to break down the barriers of bad choices? Can a second chance at happiness really be possible?



About The Author

Blossom Turner is a free-lance writer published in Chicken Soup and Kernels of Hope anthologies, former newspaper columnist on health and fitness, and an avid blogger. She lives in British Columbia, Canada, with her husband, David, of thirty-six years. A former business woman, personal trainer, and mother of two grown children she is now pursuing her lifelong dream of writing full-time.

A hopeless romantic at heart, she believes all story should give the reader significant entertainment value. However, her writing embodies the struggles of real life. She infuses the reality of suffering with the hope of Christ to give a healthy dose of relatable encouragement to her reader. Her desire is to leave the reader with a yearning to live for Christ on a deeper level, or at the very least, create a hunger to seek for more.

She is an avid blogger who has contributed to the Mount Hermon Blog, Christian Devotions blog, and writes a weekly devotional blog on the names of God. Read more at blossomturner.com.

Her authenticity comes from the crucible of suffering having undergone years of child abuse, infidelity in her marriage and brokenness of spirit. Through understanding the restorative power of God's forgiveness when humanity fails, she could write Anna's Secret in a way that grips the reader on a profound level. A strong thread of hope is woven through this compelling novel where failure, love and romance collide. Release date, May 1st 2019 


My Review

From beginning to end this read held my attention, now I have read the previous two books in this series, and you might want to pick them up! The author does a good job of keeping you updated on the previous reads!
This is Lucinda’s and Joseph’s story, childhood friends, but Lucinda, still a teenage, is headstrong and is charmed by dashing Nat, and many warn her, but, will it be too late for her to come to her senses?
The author gives us a real page-turner, and you really won’t see all that is about to happen, so many emotions are in play.
From bad choices to sweet romance, from violence to caring, we are gifted with a story that keeps on giving, and now I can’t wait for Grace’s story!
I received this book from the author, and was not required to give a positive review.
