the clouds roll away by Sibella Giorello

Retail Price: $14.99
ISBN: 1595545344

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.
