The Sweet By and By by Sara Evans

Sara Evans novel beautifully captured the angst and acceptance of this life. The book chronicles the life of Jade as she seeks love, healing, and Jesus. Our heroine finds herself quietly accepting forgiveness and in turn offering it to the people who hurt her most.

I will admit, I had no idea what to expect and assumed some shallow encounter with spirituality with this book. The pages, however, set up a picture of forgiveness that most of us refuse to learn. This book gave words to emotions that most people have no words for.

I highly recommend this light and beautiful read. If you have ever felt abandoned by your parents, a spouse, or lived through the horrors of abortion, come to Jesus tucked inside this book and find healing. Four and a half stars!
