This really was a wonderful story. I loved the main characters and I always enjoy when I meet characters from a previous book again. This story also touches on the evil and damaging effects of greed and how people will allow an innocent person to suffer in order to satisfy their ambition. I was so shocked by pastor Bloom as I have yet to encounter a man of God who behaves that way so I heave a sigh of relief that this is purely fiction and hope that there is no minister living or dead who have inspired that character. I highly recommend this wholesome book.
