"There's something about Moses Lake that changes people." - Mart McClendon - game warden
Well, upon finishing Larkspur Cove, I have to agree. I've been reading Christian fiction with an open heart lately. I am asking the questions, who are the characters, and what do their stories have to teach me?
I won't ruin any surprises, and there are many in this book. But here's something that I'm carrying away from my visit to Moses Lake. God is there, even when I cannot see Him. Even when I'm facing obstacles unique to my own life, and He will lead me where I need to go.
The characters of Larkspur Cove needed to get to the place where they could come to terms with happenings beyond their control, happenings filled with regrets, loss and uncertainty. The book is about their journey:
Andrea Henderson's carefully constructed life blows up in her face when her husband, a Christian college administrator leaves her and their teen-aged son for another woman.
Mart McClendon must deal with the death of beloved family members whom he feels personally responsible. If only he had done things differently.
Who is the little mystery girl?
These are questions that you are going to want to get to the bottom of, and you will, if you take a boat ride on the Lake and let it work it's magic on your heart.
