DECISION TO LOVE
The third book in Sutton’s Sacred Vows series continues with the journey of Hope and Tony. As with the other two novels, this book contains a great deal of graphic content that may not be palatable to the general Christian audience. The redemption element of the story makes it a worthwhile read, but readers who are offended by sexual themes, including homosexual ones, should take caution.
Years after their affair ends, Hope and Tony move on. When disturbing news is revealed by Jimmy, his father suffers a fatal heart attack. Jimmy must learn to live with the guilt, in addition to his falling away from the Lord, because of his rebellious choices. Hope tries to move through her grief as well. Tony’s life has hit rock bottom, but it is there that he finds the Lord. Can all of them learn to rely on God when He seems so far away? (SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, Jul., 320 pp., $12.99)
