Biblical truth resonates in Samson's latest outstanding novel. The two main characters are misfits who represent the unique qualities of the body of Christ. Readers will see themselves mirrored on each page, and though the feelings evoked aren't always pleasant, they are life changing. Forgiveness abounds in this stunning tale.
Valentine, a physically scarred member of a freak show, shuts herself off from most of the world with a scarf covering her face. Valentine cares for her best friend and fellow freak show oddity, a woman with no arms and legs.
Augustus carries his own scars from the past, but his are emotional and spiritual rather than physical. Grace reigns when this unlikely pair become friends and begin to confide in each other. (THOMAS NELSON, Mar., 320 pp., $14.99)
