Picture and synopsis from CWA website.
Gabe Knight, a pastor in a small coastal town, finds his life is turned upside down when Dee Dillow arrives and hires him to remodel an estate she’s inherited from her aunt. Dee dashes his plans for wedded bless when on a drunken binge, she divulges that she’s the highest paid call girl in Nevada and part-owner of the ritziest brothel in the state.
Gabe falls in love with her, but can’t believe he’s hearing the voice of God when a still, small voice tells him to marry her. After much questioning, they marry and he is deliriously happy. Until, Dee betrays him.
Gabe soon discovers just how hard it is to have the unconditional love God calls him to have for his wife, the kind of love God has for his children. When faced with losing her, Gabe realizes what true love is, how much it hurts, and just how much God loves and is willing to sacrifice for his children.
This book started out really slowly for me. There was a good message, that GOD can and will redeem anybody no matter what they do. But I had a hard time liking the character Dee. I felt bad for Gabe because GOD kept telling him to marry her anyway, not matter what her lifestyle was. Dee just kept hurting Gabe. It took her being in a really bad situation before she finally turned to GOD. The book was well written and had an excellent message.
I received a complimentary copy of the book for my honest review.
