I have been on a mission to find as many gems in the Women’s Fiction genre as I can. I was surprised to find one at a Heart hospital while waiting for my little brother to come out of heart surgery. I picked up a copy of Words by Ginny L. Yttrup. I started reading it while there and upon leaving, found the nearest book store to buy it ( I couldn’t take the hospital’s copy).
Available at Amazon.com
Ten-year old Kaylee Wren doesn’t speak. Not since her drug-addled mother walked away, leaving her in a remote cabin nestled in the towering redwoods-in the care of a man who is as dangerous as he is evil. With silence her only refuge, Kaylee collects words she might never speak from the only memento her mother left behind: a dictionary.
Sierra Dawn is thirty-four, an artist, and alone. She has allowed the shame of her past to silence her present hopes and chooses to bury her pain by trying to control her circumstances. But on the twelfth anniversary of her daughter’s death, Sierra’s control begins to crumble as the God of her childhood woos her back to Himself.
Brought together by Divine design, Kaylee and Sierra will discover together the healing mercy of the Word-Jesus Christ.
I immediately connected with the main characters, Kaylee, because of her outstanding faith that her mother would return for her. Also her strength in enduring everything she was going through with a man her mother should have never left her with. Sierra because I could understand the pain she was going through with loosing someone she loved and blaming herself. It was overwhelming when these two characters met but also exciting to see help arriving for Kaylee after all. This book shares two people needing to be saved from their current situations. After reading WORDS, Ginny L. Yttrup’s writing made me connect so much with her characters that I can’t help but read the rest of her work.
Emotions displayed: compassion, sympathy, frustration, excitement, heartbreak and hope.
