Five women search for God’s hope through sorrow and deep troubles.
Meet five women who struggle with life’s deep sorrows. Beth fights to recover from alcoholism and to mend her relationships with her family. Ann doesn’t believe God will forgive her. Kathleen wrestles with a years-old fear and with saving her marriage. Cassie needs to learn to deal with chronic depression. Martie finds herself the single parent of the eight-year-old niece she barely knows when the child’s parents die in a car wreck.
See how god gives them the gifts of hope, healing, and love.
Nike: What is the key theme and/or message in the book?
Kathy: God is our loving Father, and when we stumble and walk away, he waits and watches for us, so that he can see us as soon as we start to return and run to greet us and take us back.
Nike: Why this genre is important to you, personally?
Kathy: I write what I enjoy reading. I like books about women, reading how they deal with family and marriage issues; jobs, their work and job setting; and different kinds of relationships—dating, parents, siblings, neighbors, best friends.
Nike: Does writing energize or exhaust you?
Kathy: Making myself start to write exhausts me. When I finally settle into working on a story, I become excited, even after a long session of writing.
