Crossing ValuesThe Crossing Series - Book 1
For years, Amber traipsed around the Northwest avoiding the skeletons in her closet. Job-hopping every few weeks, she refused to let anyone get close to her. As winter plants itself firmly across the Rockies, she decides to take a chance on a job at a logging company with a family different from any she’s ever known before.
Watching the family interact creates more questions than answers for Amber. Feeling like she’s entered the happily-ever-after written at the end of fairytales, she watches for cracks in the façade. Surely as the days pass, the play-acting will cease and the real family will emerge. Or could she be wrong? Could they be genuine? Could this family hold the key to what she’s seeking?
Absolutely entertaining and enjoyable! Those are the first words that crossed my mind when I finished the novel. There are many themes in this short book, but the one that really spoke to me is how God desires us to know we are His treasured possession. After that element, the way God takes broken people then makes them whole by His love spoke to me too.
There is romance, intrigue and a picture of what it means to live a life of faith without having all the answers first. Carrie Daws shares her gift of writing with her faith which shows very obviously in this novel. I was able to sit back and read it within a couple of hours just marveling at the power of simplicity. Like Jesus and His parables, here is a simple yet profound story that will move anyone’s heart who reads it. This just goes to show that it doesn’t have to be a long or huge novel to simply show the beauty of His love.
