The Long Road Home (A Bluff Creek Novel Book 1) Review


My Review

Even though this is a fictional book I could very much see this happening. This could be your neighbors if they'd give you a glimpse into their personal life.

We all hold secrets that we are not proud of close to our heart, they shame us but we are afraid to open up. This book is the perfect example of how no matter what our secrets are that God's love is always here for us, we can always talk to him and he always comforts us and gives forgiveness.

Inspirational and in his perfect timing! I can not wait to read more by this author! Published May 21st 2020 by KDP. I was given a complimentary copy of this book. Thank you. All opinions expressed are my own.
