the clouds roll away by Sibella Giorello
Retail Price: $14.99
This fiction piece is about a woman named Raleigh Harmon. She is a FBI agent who is investigating a celebrity’s “hate” crime. As in many mysteries, there are twists and turns a person would not expect.
Her faith and not “luck” is what comes into play many times.
Sometimes I read for pleasure, sometimes I finish a book for the sake of just finishing what I started. I was rather disappointed that Thomas Nelson published this book. Although, there were no curse words, they were implied. I lost a lot of respect and wanted to quit reading, numerous times. There was also a lot of brutality and violence. This book was no way meant for the tender-hearted.
The story of the book had a lot of history background. In fact, if I could have gotten over the curse words and shocking images from a Christian publisher – I think I would have liked the book.
Did the book inspire me? In one word, no. This book did not provoke my faith or encourage me in any way. I wish I had seen more encouragement.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com <http://BookSneeze.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
