Oaktara Publishers #2: Reconciliations

To say Kevin Peterson, a car salesman, is "unlucky in love" is an understatement. Three years ago, Christine divorced him after she had two affairs. Now the woman he dated for six months is engaged...to someone else. A good friend tells him his ex might be in real trouble, but it's taken a long time to get over the hurt she caused him. He has no intention of allowing her to hurt him ever again.

Christine grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, a wild child in an unstable home. When hard times hit, she simply moved on, looking for physical affection wherever she could find it. But this time she's in over her head.

Then an odd twist of fate-or is it destiny?-forces Kevin and Christine together. Will each be able to push past the hurt and betrayal of the past to find love once again?

A delicately written, but thought-provoking, story of lost love regained, and lost souls reconciled.
Ms. Ball has crafted a story that walks a thin line, and does it well. In "Reconciliations," you'll encounter a full and honest treatment of significant moral issues--the author does not shy away from the reality of our world--but in a way that doesn't slap you in the face, or deliberately shock your sensibilities.
Kevin is an honest, but worldly, man who appears quite unlucky in love. His wife, Christine, left him after adulterating their marriage with multiple affairs. The woman he dated for several months is now engaged to another man. And don't even ask about the most recent woman to enter his life!
Christine, a broken product of a dysfunctional family, continues in the way of the lost, rebounding from relationship to relationship, until one goes horribly wrong and she ends up in the hospital. Through Divine intervention (what the world sometimes misconstrues as 'coincidence') Christine and Kevin are thrown back together again, her welfare now dependent upon her ex-husband's--shall we say "reluctant" as an understatement?--care.
Enter Mark and Janet Vinson, and the congregation of Riverside Christian Fellowship, and the plot both deepens and softens into a genuine exhibition of Christian benevolence. Kevin and Christine must now deal not only with the turmoil of the unexpected return into each other's lives, but the inescapable and unyielding love of people committed to a faith neither Kevin nor Christine understand.
The tagline on the back cover promises, "A heart-warming story of a powerful love..." And that promise is kept between the pages of "Reconciliations," the second in Ms. Ball's "Restored Hearts" series.
More about the author and this book can be found at http://www.susaneball.com/.
"Reconciliations" was provided by the publisher free for this review. But then, I'd have purchased it anyway.
