I won’t spoil any more details about the book. The author of this book, takes real world problems and show cases these problems in this book. This is a Christian fiction book about how God transforms love and His work in the Holy City of Charleston. Beth Webb Hart writes with compassion and keeps you interested. I know that this was a book that I didn’t want to put down because I wanted to find out what happened to Roy, Lish, and Della. I hope that you enjoyed this review and that you decide to read this excellent book.
