Crossroads by Cathy Bryant ~ Review


A bitter single mom denies God's existence until... What will it take to bring her back around?
After a devastating divorce, a bitter single mom and atheist starts her own real estate company in the nostalgic and picturesque town of Miller’s Creek, Texas. Then her young daughter’s disturbing symptoms lead doctors to discover that her leukemia has relapsed. With her new life now turned upside down, Mara Hedwig struggles to keep her business afloat. And her daughter’s worsening condition forces her to rethink her beliefs about Carter Callahan and his God. Will Mara make the return to Christian faith in the face of life’s greatest challenge?

An ex-military operative struggles with the return to civilian life while coping with his rebellious teen-aged daughter. During a house-search, Carter meets Mara, a headstrong Realtor who wants nothing to do with his God. But when Mara’s little girl is diagnosed with leukemia, the clock begins ticking for him to convince Mara to return to a life of faith. Just as he seems to be making headway, circumstances beyond his control throw his efforts into a tailspin. Can Carter learn to rest in the sovereignty of God?


I just have to say there are times when I am so very thankful to be able to read some really awesome books and then share my opinion. Reading books by Author Cathy Bryant, leaves me feeling thankful each and every time!

I have LOVED her Miller's Creek books and wonder how she can top one book to the next but she does and she nails it every single time! 

Crossroads is the 6th book in the Miller's Creek series. Most "series" require that you read them in order but this series, in my opinion, is one that you can read them in order if you like or read them as stand alone books.  Just do yourself a favor, read them no matter how that may be, in order or not!!!

The story in Crossroads is so relatable! We all know that person who has been really hurt by those who profess to know Jesus, however, their behavior is clearly not one who looks, acts, or speaks like they do. Mara has a very tainted view of who Christ is and how HE truly loves her and because of her feelings, all her relationships are not what they could or should be. One day, all of that begins to change, once Carter walks into her life. 

Carter is a single dad who has just gone through a nasty divorce and is doing his best at raising his teenage daughter, Chloe. He doesn't quite know how to relate to her, but it seems as though Mara knows exactly what to say and do. Mara's daughter Ashton falls in love with both Carter and Chloe. When her leukemia takes a turn for the worse, all of them get closer & closer to one another. But will Mara be able to find God in all of this? Will she be able to give her life to HIM? These are just a couple of things Carter has been praying for, for Mara & Ashton, and everyone is praying for Ashton's health!

Crossroads is an EXCELLENT book! I promise you will LOVE IT ♥♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I know I sure did!!

Thank you Cathy Bryant for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my host review!!!
