A Love Made New by Kathleen Fuller
A Love Made New by Kathleen Fuller is the third book in a series of 3 Birch Creek novels.
Oh my. Where do I begin with this one? There is so much drama going on in the pages of this book. The emotional turmoil in the lives of the characters keeps you on the edge of your seat. The real-life situations that plague all of us from time to time arise as ugly in this book as they do in real life. Readers are bound to relate closely to the characters and their circumstances.
Abigail Schrock has been betrayed. Within a matter of minutes, she went from her highest mountain top where her hopes and dreams were about to come true to plundering into her deepest valley. Abigail knows God loves her but can he heal her broken heart?
To make matters worse, Abigail’s two sisters have found love. One is married and the other is planning a wedding. Abigail is alone. Or is she?
Abigail’s self esteem suffers a tremendous blow for the same reasons many of us suffer the same. I doubt there are many women who at some time or another would not relate to Abigail’s physical and emotional state.
Abigail has one suitor, but she is determined to push him away. She has suffered too much already and she refuses to be hurt again.
Will Abigail experience a love made new?
Abigail is the main character in A Love Made New but she isn’t the only one you’ll get attached to. This book is filled with dynamic characters who will capture your heart and your attention.
There are several things I loved about A Love Made New. I loved that multiple stories occurring simultaneously gave me the emotional breaks I needed to keep me coming back for more. I couldn’t wait to finish one chapter or section of one story so that I could get back to another, like a very complicated but intriguing movie. I was thankful that some of the main characters were portrayed just as imperfect as I am. As I read through their stories and their struggles to deal with forgiveness and the acceptance of grace, I realized my own need to forgive and to accept the grace my God has offered me. The elements of the most interesting stories – mystery, crime, betrayal, suspense, love – are all there. Out of all the ugliness that sin brings upon family and friends, you’ll find strong families who love unconditionally. You’ll find devoted friendships. You’ll find a consistent theme throughout the book, an emphasis on God’s perfect timing. You’ll find the agony of betrayal and a love lost but then the revelation of God’s plan and purpose with a love made new.
