HAVEN

Author(s): 
Review Running for his life, Darrell Miller doesn't know where to turn until he sees a beautiful old church and steps inside. Jenny, unwed and pregnant, has a big decision to make—raise her child as a single mom or give her baby up for adoption.

Elegant Dorothy, pillar of faith and charity, has no idea who she is any longer when her husband of more than 30 years leaves her for a younger woman. Joe is always ready to help anyone in need, but not everyone shares his faith in God. These four lives intertwine in a journey toward hope through the haven of a lovely church in a run-down neighborhood.

The author delivers a thoroughly enjoyable read, with high stakes for the appealing characters—even though a few of the plot points are unlikely and the character arcs simplistic. (Jan., 384 pp., $6.99)
