The Atonement by: Beverly Lewis

The AtonementThe Atonement by Beverly Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Striving to fill an empty heart or to earn favor – favor already given thru grace, it starts with forgiveness towards others and yourself.

Lucy has built a wall of protection around her heart by keeping busy with volunteer work. With the encouragement from her father, she starts to attend a community church small group that deals with grief and loss. Both father and daughter befriend an English man (Dale) who teaches them different lessons. Her parents start to worry that the past will catch up with Lucy as her relationship with Dale starts to have the implications of being something much more.

I liked how this book progressed. You did not know what Lucy was running away from but bit by bit you are taken into her heart as she struggles with her past. It sometimes takes baby steps of faith to find redemption and grace to live in gratitude. I was taken captive by Lucy’s journey.

A Special Thank You to Bethany House Publishers and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
