Finding Faith, by Denise Hunter
Okay, I'm normally not a fan of women's fiction...not enough dead bodies for me!...but this book was AWESOME! The deep characters, the intricate plot, the emotions....all I can say is I'm blown away. I highly recommend this book, even if you don't read women's fiction. This is good writing, plain and simple. It's rare for a book to invoke my emotions so strongly, but Denise managed to do that by pulling me into the characters and their deep emotions. Get the book...you won't be disappointed.
On a personal note, I was blessed to have gotten to spend a little time with Denise on my recent trip to Indiana. This woman is beautiful, inside and out. Then again, I have to envy her a little bit--she has three sons and has still got a figure to die for--the woman shouldn't be so beautiful. I mean, if she were ugly on the inside, maybe I could resent her, but no....God made her with a pure heart. So, I'll just feel blessed by knowing her. Here's a picture of her, Diann Hunt and Colleen Coble in Indiana. These ladies so rock! If only Kris had been there...maybe next time! :)
