Musser brings together a cast of characters, who seem to have no relation to each other, in touching and heartwarming fashion. Lissa Randall has a promising academic future until she is involved in an accident that takes her mother’s life. Months later, she’s still afraid to drive, especially on Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga where she lives & where the accident took place.
She enrolls in a driving school and her instructor, Ev, is a fatherly figure who cares for his students and does what he can to help them overcome their fears.
At a bookstore near Atlanta, Lissa meets a young Italian publisher who takes an interest in her. He has another agenda, however, as he is determined to undercover the mystery identity of a popular author.
In France, a young missionary wife is struggling with the grief of losing her young son. Can God help her? Can He use her while she is going through such a valley?
I was uncomfortable reading this book in the beginning. Lissa struggles with hearing “voices”, as she continues to feel guilty & at fault over her mother’s death. Voices that tell her she is worthless, no good, etc. But the difficulties and challenges she faces are familiar to many of us and the things she learns about herself, others, and God make the book a more than worthwhile read.
Musser herself is a missionary in France and the author of several Christian novels. To learn more about her and her books, check out her website: www.elizabethmusser.com
