Who wouldn't want a mother to love? Who wouldn't want to spend time with their mom and do all the crazy things one does with their mom, growing up? "A Mother to Love", the first of the Lilac Circle series by Gail Gaymer Martin is not just a romantic love story, it is a love story about family, about a child's need for love.
Rick came to the rescue. When Rick's having custody issues with his ex-wife, Angie's there to support and fill in the role of a "mother" with Carly, his daughter through their time spent together. This is a sweet novel that brings God's grace and mercy into the lives of these characters. It's wisdom from His words (the Bible), that one learns to pray and rely on Him and each other. I also love the side stories and analogies. What it means to be neighborly and what it means to accept who a person is - not only from the outside, but what's in their hearts. I'm certainly guilty of being in my own world most of the time, and neglecting the human interactions - especially what it means to be neighborly. Something for all of us to think about.
