After suffering the loss of his mother and separation from his sister and the girl he loved, Jordan Riley has filled the holes in his soul with anger. He decides to reject the God he leaned on in his youth and sues his hometown to have a popular statue of Jesus removed. The conflict causes him to cross paths with a spirited young newscaster named Faith, who opposes Jordan's suit in surprising ways. Perhaps most amazing of all is the way Faith begins to disassemble the walls around Jordan's heart. And there's something very familiar about her...

This story is about so many great people. Jordan’s journey from his devastating past to a new place. Faith’s journey from a place of comfort to a place of boldness. Joshua’s journey from a place of following to a place of leading. This story drew me in and held my attention. I have never read any of Karen Kingsbury’s fiction. In some ways, I think I avoided it. I am glad I finally listened to my old friend’s recommendation about this particular title. It’s been years, but I finally listened. I’m really happy that I did. This is a powerful story of redemption, tearing down walls, and coming to a greater connection with God in your walk with Him. I really enjoyed it! It was, for some, predictable, but I even like those stories too. I went through most every emotion while reading this book, including: anger, sadness, happiness, joy, regret, etc. On Every Side is well worth the time it takes to read. I highly recommend this title myself and encourage you to go find a peaceful park bench and do a little reading. You’ll know what I mean!

After walking away from his faith in God, does Jordon ever return does he ever find his sister. the answer to all these questions and what really happens to the statue lay in the book.
