Bravo! Biblical Christian Recovery in a Fictional Context!
For those who are being abused in Sin, Secrets, and Salvation, Susan (the heroine of this story) becomes an important mentor and role model. For as the reader watches Susan becomes strong enough to leave her abusive, demeaning husband, allowing the reader to take their own journey and claim victory in Messiah! My prayer is that those reading this book who need to do as Susan did discover that blessings can be theirs as they work though their situation and more-so after the abuse ends.
As someone who works with and writes about the abuse of girls and women, and knows that Gods Words is the only healing balm I can offer, I was delighted and surprised to that find author, Lynn Hobbs and I are on the same page. Surprised because for several years, I have found Christian authors setting up situations where biblical solutions happened but found that the use of Scripture was spars or lacking. And delighted to see that in each instance in this well-crafted story, the characters `sweet spot’ the spot they will treasure and never want to leave is reached when worldly issues that cause incredible pain became Christ’s gain.
If you think Christian books are pabulum and have nothing to offer you by way of reality, compassion, or a real world view, in author Lynn Hobbs’ Sin, Secrets, and Salvation you will discover a real life gripping drama that can be shared and discussed with your daughter, mother, best friend, or someone you suspect may be experiencing what Susan does.

About the Author of the Review:
As a Messianic Jew, I wanted to write about life, love, choices, and forgiveness. I researched what befell the Jews baptized into the Catholic faith to survive the Inquisition. When I began writing, Naomi started talking to me.
Though her story is unique, Naomi’s issues of fear and hiding are universal. Having an extensive background in recovery as a Chemical Dependency – Lifestyle Disorder Councilor, worked with The Rubicon Center, and founded LAMB Ministries in 1988 to mentor women suffering from trauma and abuse, I know the issues Naomi has are those seen in anyone who is masking their real pain. That is why six inspirational romances were written, three of which have been published.
