A Book Review ~ #1

Oceans Apart

"A riveting story of secret sin and the healing power of forgiveness. Airline pilot Connor Evans and his wife, Michele, seem to be the perfect couple living what looks like a perfect life. Then a plane goes down in the Pacific Ocean. One of the casualties is Kiahna Siefert, a flight attendant Connor knew well. Too well. Kiahna's will is very clear: before her seven-year-old son, Max, can be turned over to the state, he must spend the summer with the father he's never met, the father who doesn't know he exists: Connor Evans. Now will the presence of one lonely child and the truth he represents destroy Connor's family ? Or is it possible that healing and hope might come in the shape of a seven-year-old boy?"
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE Karen Kingsbury...she is the kind of author that if all you knew was that she wrote the book then it would be a must read! This book was a thought provoking, tear-jerking and encouraging read (as usual for KK). I picked up this book and read it in just a few days. It is one of her stand alone titles so it's a nice quick one if you don't want to start a series.
Karen Kingsbury weaves a difficult tale of a family broken by lies and deceit and poor choices. However, she encourages us to remember that our God is the God of second chances and forgiveness! "Love happens when you forgive". We can only think of the ultimate example of complete forgiveness by our Lord Jesus. Even when we were still sinners, He died for us to give us the precious gift of forgiveness and a second chance. What more could we ask for?
I DEFINITELY recommend this book!! :)
