THE LAST STORYTELLER
Stubborn and free-spirited, Taite Abbot refuses to jeopardize her boyfriend's career aspirations by telling him she's pregnant. Instead, she runs to her Welsh grandmother for refuge while she contemplates abortion. A woman of deep faith, Taite's grandmother sees her dilemma and begins to share stories from generations past.
If Taite opens her heart, she might find healing for her relationship with her mother and reconciliation with the man she loves. If she remains trapped within the walls of fear, the lineage begun by her brave Welsh ancestors may end with her.
Noble pens a thought-provoking tale that explores sensitive topics in a unique manner. Moving from the present to the past and back again, the novel proves that grace can be ministered through a true understanding of history. The ending is a bit hasty after spending so long with beloved characters. (Sep., 384 pp., $12.99)
