Crossroads by Cathy Bryant

I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review
Crossroads by Cathy Bryant
A Miller's Creek Novel #6
ISBN: 9781941699058

Book Description:
A former soldier battles for the soul of a prodigal...

After a devastating divorce, a bitter single mom and atheist starts her own real estate company in the nostalgic and picturesque town of Miller’s Creek, Texas. Then her young daughter’s disturbing symptoms lead doctors to discover that her leukemia has relapsed. With her new life now turned upside down, Mara Hedwig struggles to keep her business afloat. And her daughter’s worsening condition forces her to rethink her beliefs about Carter Callahan and his God. Will Mara make the return to Christian faith in the face of life’s greatest challenge?
An ex-military operative struggles with the return to civilian life while coping with his rebellious teen-aged daughter. During a house-search, Carter meets Mara, a headstrong Realtor who wants nothing to do with his God. But when Mara’s little girl is diagnosed with leukemia, the clock begins ticking for him to convince Mara to return to a life of faith. Just as he seems to be making headway, circumstances beyond his control throw his efforts into a tailspin. Can Carter learn to rest in the sovereignty of God?
This is the first book that I have had the pleasure of reading of reviewing of this author’s. I have to say I was pleased with this book. After reading this book though I want to now go back and now read the rest of the Miller’s Creek series. Even though I have not read the rest of this series, I was able to read this book as a stand alone novel. The characters are very well developed and could be any one you know they are so real to life. This is a Christian fiction book and there is a lot of faith in this story which was nice. The way this author tells this story is like she is painting a picture in your mind. I do have to warn this that this is an emotional book so you may need to have your tissues handy. Another thing that I liked is that there are some twists and turns which in my opinion keep the book moving right along. All in all this is a very good book.
