My Thoughts

Alexia and Justin's story continues in this the second offering in the Mocked by Faith series.  Having read Mocked by Faith, this book tore at my heart.  Alexia, having grown up believing that her husband was always going to be there to protect her; must now come to grips with the fact that he has left her to do his duty in going after the minister that stole from the church.

Alexia, still reeling from the loss of her baby, takes Justin's leaving as yet another loss, and finds herself in a downward spiral that she doesn't seem to want to correct.

Meanwhile, Justin is facing demons from his past when he goes back to the revirgining retreat where he was abused years earlier.

This is a book that speaks to the reader through lyrically fluid writing, true to life situations, and emotional connection.  Though the story is at times very hard to read; it is also very hard to put down.
You want so much for things to work out for everyone involved, that you become invested in the story as well.

This is truly a story of tests, faith and perseverance. 

If you have not read Mocked by Faith I would suggest that you do so.  This is not a stand alone read and as such, you will need the background that the first book provides.
