Welcome to my fellow Abingdon Press author, Sherry Kyle! I’m pleased to feature her new release, The Heart Stone (Abingdon, 2013).
Sherry’s debut novel was Delivered with Love, also from Abingdon. She sets her stories on the California coast and writes women’s fiction as well as children’s books.
TWO WOMEN. TWO JOURNEYS.
A SEASON THAT MAY CHANGE THEIR LIVES FOREVER.
When the alcoholic father of Jessica MacAllister’s son reappears in their lives, Jessica and her son go to her Uncle George for advice and refuge.
Following a year of grief, Evelyn Sweeney is finally ready to move on. As she ponders her new path in life, her mind drifts to her first love, George MacAllister.
When the lives of these two women cross, they discover that one heart-shaped ring binds their stories together. But will the results be a rekindled faith and new hope? Or will it lead them both back into the darkness they’ve fought for so long?
One thing that struck me about The Heart Stone was its general theme of forgiveness, set against a tough situation: child custody issues following the breakup. If this challenge hasn’t touched you personally, chances are you know someone who has had to navigate these often tempestuous waters. And if you’re a Christian, the expectations can be overwhelming. Kyle does a good job of treating the miscommunication, hurt feelings and even paranoia that often arises when someone you thought you knew changes during a custody battle. Against the backdrop of this decidedly touchy issue, Kyle hangs the power of love to heal and to forgive.
