Interesting story with some surprises Jan 18, 2008
Finding Faith is a touching story of honesty, forgiveness and redemption. It continues where Saving Grace left off, this time the story focuses on Paula and Linn.
Paula has been offered a position in Chicago that could be her gateway to her dream job as a news anchor. Chicago is much more her style- she doesn't like all that comes with living in a small town like Jackson Hole, Wyoming (everyone knowing your name and your business, little or no entertainment, limited choices for eating out, etc.) She accepts the position at the same time as her husband, David, accepts ownership of a real estate firm based in Jackson Hole. She leaves him behind to pursue her dream. She makes a lot of sacrifices in that pursuit and even more were made to get her where she is now. Paula's past comes back to haunt her and her first story as an investigative reporter brings her face to face with her mistakes. Can she move on? Can she accept what she has done- and can David forgive her? Will they be able to live together as husband and wife, or will this tear them apart?
Linn is also facing her past. She moved to Chicago to attend Loyola University. She starts work at a small coffee shop to help pay for school and living expenses. There she meets Adam, a handsome young man training to be a minister. They quickly fall for each other despite many things in the way. Number one, how can Linn tell Adam- who's pursuing a career where you lead by example- about her past indiscretions? Two, Adam is engaged. Three, can Linn forgive herself and allow her broken hear to love again?
Ms. Hunter deals with a lot of serious issues in this series. First in Mending Places, there's rape, child abuse, adultery, and divorce. In Saving Grace, there's abortion and adoption. Here in the third installment, many of these issues play a part. Though Paula's story is the bigger feature with the bigger issues, I found Linn's sweeter and more satisfyingly romantic. Both Paula and Linn need to learn the same lesson- to forgive themselves and to be honest about their past with those they love. The story, as is the rest of the New Heights series, is riveting and addicting. Though you can kind of predict the issues when the first hints are laid and the prospects are introduced, you still are interested enough to see how everything is resolved in the end. Micah and Hanna's story (Mending Places) was my favorite because it was the most romantic and sweet, but overall the whole series is a good investment. They are touching stories with real issues where God's healing forgiveness and redemption is evident throughout. You should buy all at once, and have the next one handy because they are addicting!
Couldn't put it down! Jul 31, 2006
Denise Hunter has a gift. Once I started reading her latest novel, Finding Faith, I couldn't stop. If you like inspirational stories with a surprising twist, you'll love this book!
Great story May 11, 2006
Paula Landin-Cohen is offered her dream job as a TV reporter in Chicago. David, her husband, isn't interested in leaving Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and their marriage is already in trouble because David suspects Paula has cheated on him. She's innocent, but she does have a secret she doesn't dare reveal. Paula has never allowed anything to get in the way of her career. She is investigating a scoop that will practically guarantee her the anchor position at the TV station,but telling the story will destroy several people. Maybe even Paula, herself. Will she put her career first, regardless of the cost?
Linn Caldwell is a new Christian, trying to correct the mistakes of her past, then she falls in love with the one man she can't have. Why would God do this to her?
Two women who have sinned, faced with the same problem; will the men they love be able to forgive them? Finding Faith is the third book in the New Heights Series, and is a fast paced story about two women struggling with real life issues. I really enjoyed this story.
Surprising Twist Apr 26, 2006
While Finding Faith is the second of a series, I had no trouble following the characters' lives or understanding their pasts, though I hadn't read the first book. A story of pain and sorrow, Hunter colors the pages with dark hues of sin's consequences. But it's also a story of love and the promise of a future, blended with brilliant jewel tones of redemption and restoration.
Peopled with believable characters, Finding Faith is a haunting story. I was drawn into their lives and then, just when I thought I had things figured out, Hunter threw a curve ball I didn't see coming. A brilliant plot and well written, Finding Faith delivers more than I expected.
Amazing! Apr 20, 2006
Powerful storyline with unforgettable characters--that's become Denise Hunter's trademark and this book is no exception! It gripped me from the start with strong characters caught up in the drama of life, and I couldn't put this book down until the end when I was able to close it with a sigh.
