Written by Lisa Samson
Reviewed by Martha Artyomenko
When kindly old Claudius Borne picks up May on the side of the road after a drunken party night, care for her and treats her like the daughter he never had, it is the beginning of a beautiful friendship and something more.
May travels the world and after suffering through a genocide in Rwanda that leaves her scarred on the inside and the outside. Claudius works to help her heal and other special people God brings into her life who have suffered as well, like an old boyfriend who is a murderer on death row now, a kindly nun, and the postman.
May is afraid to the leave the house and rarely does, but through letter writing, some interviews and love from many people, you will read this book of pain and healing and it’s many hurting characters.
You will fall in love with them in spite of yourself and feel the pain she was feeling with overly descriptiveness.
I think this is the best book I have read by Lisa Samson. She really captured the heart of pain, hurt and healing in a novel like many cannot.
