Book Review: "A Promise of Forever Love"

AUTHOR: Vanessa Miller
PUBLISHER: New Kensington, PA: Whitaker House, 2011, (144 pages)

This is a novel of love being given a second chance. Beginning with the key characters like Pastor Yvonne Milner, and co-pastor Thomas Reed, the novel highlights the role of grace during a time of disgrace, hope during moments of despair, and love that meanders through the ups and downs of various relationships. In all of these, there is a strong recognition that because God has given the human race a second chance, we all need to give one another a second chance.

Author Vanessa Miller weaves a beautiful story of love being given a second chance. Yvonne and Reed, who have both lost their spouses were given a second chance at love. Yvonne's rebellious daughter, Tia, got a second chance to redeem her life, despite her unwed pregnancy. Even Tia's shotgun marriage which failes to take place as schedule was given a second chance. The same also applies to Toya, whose romance with Marvel Williams took a sinister turn for the worse. She too got her second chance.

The twists and turns in the story make this book a compelling read. The surprises keeps the reader interested. Though this is a Christian novel, the shared themes of forgiveness, grace, love, courage, and many meaningful themes are applicable to all. Non-Christians should not feel too left out.

Good story.
