Losing everything has made Lexi hold those she loves tightly. Hell is determined to loosen her grip.
Lexi lives in the shadow of choices her husband made. Especially Grant’s choice to leave seven years ago, without a word. Her relationship with their daughter, Molly, is now the most important thing in her life. Lexi will do anything—work grueling hours, attend church on her only day off, sacrifice financially—just to see Molly smile.
When Grant shows up declaring his intent to re-enter their daughter’s life, Lexi is skeptical of his motives. She soon determines not to let him near Molly. Then a drug dealer named Warden arrives on Lexi’s doorstep, demanding payment of Grant’s old debts.
But that’s just the earthly perspective. Staggering supernatural events are spilling into her world in real and shocking ways. Hell’s fury is great, but Heaven’s power is greater still.
This is my first book by this author. She has written other books with other authors, but this is her first solo book. I didn’t know what to expect from this author since I had nothing else to go on. The author did a wonderful job of including the right amount of suspense and drama to keep you interested in the book. This isn’t a light read though. It deals with a lot of subjects that aren’t happy or fun. It reminds you that no matter how bad and hectic life can get, God is with you the entire way. With all that being said, some things could have been better. The author left some things unresolved up until the last chapter. Some things could have been worked out a little earlier and the book could have been better. It dragged a bit throughout the book. The author also throws in some paranormal to add to the story. At times, it seemed a little too much.
Still, for this being the authors first time at writing an entire novel by herself, she did a great job.
Okay book, but it left me wanting more! 3 STARS
