Is her change of heart real, or is it just another role?
New York City actress, Natalie Rivers is a taker. She found out years ago that she has to look out for herself because no one else will. But when she loses a coveted role and her home in the same day, she is forced to take a painful look at her life and attitude. She struggles through her crisis alone, until her path collides with an eccentric pair of friends who show her the unexpected beauty of caring for others.
In the midst of finding love and a sense of purpose, Natalie’s perspective is changing. But when the heartbreak and mistakes of her past catch up with her, she will have to answer an important question: is new life possible or is she simply playing a part?
my point of view:
I have been a fan of Chloe’s work for a while now, and even had the great pleasure of meeting her in person in January 2019! This lovely author has a really unique way of getting inside your heart and soul! This is her first Potter’s House venture, but she brings us the tale of a character that is so flawed and in need of redemption that it fits this series perfectly!
Most of us who enjoy Christian Fiction like the stories of wholesome characters that have a deep relationship with Our God….sure, they stray and need to be led back on the path at times, but rarely do we come across a character like Natalie. I’ll be brutally honest here – I didn’t like Natalie – at first – and kinda wanted to hold on to my attitude towards her behavior. You know, selfish, maybe spoiled to a point, very proud of her looks and self centered. We get enough of that in real life, who wants to read about it from her own point of view, lol?
Well, let me tell you – this book had me crying real tears! The faith journey is different for everyone, but going along for Natalie’s redemption was absolutely wonderful. I am so grateful that I had the chance to get to read this amazing book of faith. There is romance in here too, but honestly, the redemption journey that Natalie goes through is so touching you don’t even need the love story. We all can take a lesson from this book and look into our hearts and maybe learn to be a little more tolerant of others, we never really know what they have been through to bring them to this moment in time. I highly recommend any of Chloe’s novels, but if you need a starting off point, jump right in here!
