Pam - Sharon Srock
Pam’s divorce broke her heart. The cruelty of her ex-husband broke her spirit. A bottle of sleeping pills almost took her life. Four years later the scars of Alan Archer’s emotional abuse are beginning to fade under the love of her new husband. When Alan returns to Garfield, Pam must learn that buried secrets and carefully cultivated indifference do not equal forgiveness.Alan Archer has returned to Garfield with a new wife and a terminal heart condition. His mission? To leave a Christian legacy for his children and to gain Pam’s forgiveness for the sins of his past. Two hearts hang in the balance waiting for the delicate touch of God’s healing hands.
One thing I really like about this book was how the author didn't try to make her characters perfect in their Christian walk. This often happens in Christian fiction. I know as a long time Christian that I have often slipped up. I was definitely able to connect with Pam. I went through my own divorce and remarriage. Just because you "say" you forgive someone, doesn't mean you did so in your heart. However, it is the first step to forgiveness. There is so much that can be learned about forgiveness from this book, whether you have gone through a divorce or not. This was actually the first book I had read by this author. I did purchase the first two in the series , "Callie"and "Terrie". I look forward to following the next one. I will gladly recommend this series to my friends.
