Customer Reviews

By Heidi Borton, VOYA

Believable characters, smooth narrative, and hopeful endings characterize each story. . . . The author avoids pat answers to complex questions and situations while portraying authentic Christianity. Characters struggle with issues of faith, pray, see God at work in their lives, and grow in understanding in a way recognizable to believers. God is portrayed as loving, faithful, and intimately involved in the lives of his children. With a talent for details recognizable to all readers, Daoust uses simple and humorous language to describe truth.
