By Francine Rivers
I have liked every book I’ve read by Francine Rivers and this is no exception. This story is about Abra, the girl that was abandoned as a newborn in the small town of Haven. She is adopted by Pastor Freeman and his wife and they love her unconditionally. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Abra has to go live with a different family. Thus begins Abra’s belief that she has been an unwanted nobody since the day she was born.
When smooth talker Dylan comes to town, Abra falls hard and despite warnings from those who love her, she goes to Hollywood with him. Abra finds out quickly what is expected of her and what she needs to do to become “somebody”. The fame she enjoys for a season comes at a steep price. Will there ever be someone who loves her for who she really is?
All the time Abra is gone, many people in Haven hold her up in prayer. One particular young man, Joshua, never forgets her. He tries more than once to find her and finally thinks that she doesn’t want to be found. He needs to get on with his life.
Like her other books, I couldn’t put this book down. Can’t wait for the next one!
