Miralee Ferrell's Finding Jeena ~ Reviewed
By Miralee Ferrell
Published by Kregel Publications
Jeena Gregory thought she'd made it. She has everything a woman could ask for and a budding career promises more. But when rumors around town cast her boss in a shady light, Jeena starts to question her employer's integrity. Was she wrong to trust this man and this job?
When the boss disappears, salaries go unpaid, and Jeena overhears several hush-hush phone calls, she realizes her carefully crafted world is crumbling. Shaken to the core at eh threat of losing everything, Jeena is suddenly confronted with her prejudices—and with a God she had long forgotten.
Finding Jeena is a beautifully crafted illustration of Matt 6:20, "Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal." As I watched Jeena's world crack and crumble, I thought how good this story was so timely in today's world. Powerful and poignant, Finding Jeena offers hope for the hopeless. Novel Journey and I give it a high recommendation.
