Those stories, the ones we start to read and can’t put down, reel us in to another place in time with characters who seem alive. We smell the scenes and visualize their emotions. We want to shout out to them, to warn them or cheer them on! Pebbles in my Way felt like a realistic, personal story.
Author Alice Klies writes beautifully. Her fiction story revolves around a main character, Karen, who found herself in trials from her past choices. God puts the right people in her path and her opposition to the true gospel turns around. This beautiful story of redemption portrayed in the mountains of Scottsdale, AZ, shows that God is a personal God who cares about His children. No stuffy religious dialogue, this story unveils hope for the downtrodden.
Karen looks like any woman caught in confusion and grief, but when she finds Jesus her life takes on new adventures!
I highly recommend this novel.
