Mother's Day Giveaway - Enduring Justice


This offering for the Mother's Day Giveaway is a compelling novel from an author who knows how to keep the reader glued to the page. Enduring Justice is the third book in Amy Wallace's Defenders of Hope series, but it does not require the reader to have read the previous books. (However, they were excellent as well and highly recommended.) The book deals with some tough subjects, including recovery from childhood sexual abuse, racism, and revenge. However, as much as we would like to ignore these issues, they are realities for far too many people, including believers. Yet, when relinquished to God and bathed in His grace, healing and new beginnings will take place, even if the "whys" are never answered.

God in His mysterious ways wouldn't stop the storms, or shield them from all pain. But He'd walk with them through it. (p. 312-313)

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In Enduring Justice, Hanna Kessler’s childhood secret has remained buried for over two decades. But when the dark shadows of her past threaten to destroy those she loves, Hanna must face the summer that changed her life and the man who still haunts her thoughts.

Crimes Against Children FBI Agent Michael Parker knows what it means to get knocked down. And when the system fails and a white supremacist is set free, Michael’s drive for retribution eclipses all else.

A racist’s well-planned assault forces Hanna and Michael to decide between executing vengeance and pursuing justice. When the attack turns personal, is healing still possible?

This thought-provoking novel deals with healing from sexual abuse, the balance of justice and mercy, and maintaining mixed-race friendships in the midst of racial tension. Readers who enjoy investigative thrillers by Dee Henderson, Colleen Coble, and Catherine Coulter, and who watch crime dramas like Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, and Without a Trace will love this book—and the entire series.

AUTHOR BIO:
Amy Wallace is the author of Ransomed Dreams and Healing Promises, a homeschool mom, and a self-confessed chocoholic. She is a graduate of the Gwinnett County Citizens Police Academy and a contributing author to several books, including God Answers Moms’ Prayers and Chicken Soup for the Soul Healthy Living Series: Diabetes. She lives with her husband and three children in Georgia. Visit her on her website, aptly named Dark Chocolate Suspense.
