Andy Andrews’s latest book is a very compelling story. It is a historical fiction self-help book about forgiveness. Oh, and it's based on a true story.
The story is of an unlikely couple who meet in a small gulf town during
Often when we have been hurt, wronged, or disappointed, we let the pain of the incident cloud our vision and our lives. This is exactly what one of the principal characters in the book has done. Andy weaves a story that keeps you reading, and in the process gives us a good example of forgiveness and second chances. He illustrates how when bitterness and anger takes over we are in reality allowing the person/event to control us.
Just as in the book, God will place people in our lives to speak truth to us; we just have to be open and receptive.
“Forgiveness does not erase history or excuse what happened,…… It means giving something up. To relinquish something means to give up whatever power it holds over us.” Pg. 120
After reading this book you will have a clearer understanding of forgiveness and the necessity of it in your own life, the freedom it brings.
