Denise Hunter's Finding Faith~Reviewed
By Denise Hunter
Published by Howard Fiction
It was only one day. But the resulting ripples are headed her way …
ONE WOMAN SACRIFICING EVERYTHING FOR HER CAREER
Paula Landin-Cohen, an investigative reporter, feels like a fish out of water in the small town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Then she's offered her dream job, as a TV reporter in Chicago. There is so much to gain and so much to lose … including the only man she's ever loved.
A YOUNG GIRL'S LONGING FOR ACCEPTANCE
Linn Caldwell has made a lot of mistakes—bad mistakes. She can never forgive herself for all the pain she's caused others. How can she dare to get close to anyone again?
AND THE ROAD TO FORGIVENESS …
What will happen if Paula and Linn's secrets are revealed? Will the men they love ever be able to forgive them?
While Finding Faith is the second of a series, I had no trouble following the characters' lives or understanding their pasts, though I hadn't read the first book. A story of pain and sorrow, Hunter colors the pages with dark hues of sin's consequences. But it's also a story of love and the promise of a future, blended with brilliant jewel tones of redemption and restoration.
Peopled with believable characters, Finding Faith is a haunting story. I was drawn into their lives and then, just when I thought I had things figured out, Hunter threw a curve ball I didn't see coming. A brilliant plot and well written, Finding Faith delivers more than I expected.
