I love Beth Wiseman. Her stories are full, rich and teeming with life.
She is able to create a story full of characters, situations, life circumstances and somehow weave them all together to make a wonderful story.
This book covers the story of Anna and Jacob. I loved reading their story and watching how God brings all things together for good.
A story of faith, love, struggle and forgiveness.
A book readers will love this winter season!
