"Travelers Rest", is the story of three people and how their lives intertwined in God's plan. He weaves grace through the lives of these three people who are all facing different circumstances, but life brings them together in ways that could only happen through God's divine plan for us.
The travelers in this poignant read all need rest from the weariness they face. You have the woman who wants to remain by her love no matter what. The soldier who is ready to give up after battle has cost him greatly and the man who needs to find forgiveness. Ann Tatlock has brought us a fantastic story of God's strength and redemption. We see love prevail and realize everything doesn't turn out as we would like. But once we begin to see past the pain we can see God's plan forming and come to view.
I connected with the main character, Jane Morrow. There is a character in this gem that each of us can connect with. I know there have been times in my early walk with Christ that my faith was not strong. At times it was barely there, but none the less, when times of heartache came, I called out to God. He never failed to answer me. It may not have been the answer I was looking for, but He brought blessings through the pain and touched my life in ways that could not have happened if not for the pain.
You will love the story of Jane and those that surround her in this story.
This book was a gift from Bethany House for it's review.
