My rating is 4 stars.
Sometimes I can tell whether a novel is one I want to read or perhaps not at the moment.  Yes, sometimes it is the cover that either draws or repels, especially if the author is new to me.  Other times it’s a feeling I get that the story may be happy or sad, delve into hard topics or any other sense.  With this particular novel, I knew it was going to be hard to read because of the suffering written regarding the child character.  Let’s face it none us of wants to see or hear about a child suffering because it makes us aware of what we cannot do.  However, it can also allow us to experience God and know God as He reveals Himself amidst suffering or tragedy.
If you recently lost someone, I would wait to read the book.  The story both drew me in and repelled me as I knew the ending was going to be something other than what I desired.  What the author does however is show a side to suffering few ever know about because it occurs in the heart of a person.  In the story, a man who has a less than stellar character meets up with Mabel an elderly lady who lovingly takes on the care of the sick child.
I think bringing forth the spiritual aspect of humans in the story along with Scripture is something rarely written into books.  However, the author does an exceptional job of showing how all mankind no matter age, social status, or anything else is in desperate need of a Savior, and there is only One, Jesus!  Should you desire to be touched in your heart, mind and soul you’ll read the book along with the note from the author as to why and how the story came into being.
Here is a book I won’t soon forget as it caused me to remember the seasons in my life where there was suffering, but more importantly there was a deeper revelation of God to me.  So because of those revelations I was and am and will be changing till I go to be with Him!  Want to be filled with peace, joy and new life?  Pick up a copy, read and see what occurs in your heart.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
