The House on Malcolm Street

Leah Breckenridge loses her husband and son, and she is left to fend for herself and her daughter Eliza. As a last resort, they move to a boarding house that belongs to her late husband's Aunt Marigold. Although still angry and scared, she slowly finds healing. As the Lord uses the people around her to minister to her, she finds that He is also using her and her daughter to touch the lives around them.
The House on Malcolm Street is a beautiful story of grief, forgiveness, and God's great love and mercy. This is a character driven novel written in first person of two alternating characters. The growth and discovery of both characters, as well as a couple of minor characters is realistic and well-written. I enjoyed seeing the Lord work in and through the characters; it was a strong theme and message!

Available September 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

I wanted to like this one, but it ended up being just kind of blah for me. I'm glad it worked for you!
