4 Stars


Trisha Knolane has her whole life ahead of her, but after a painful breakup with Paul “Paul Bunyan” Benson, the love of her life, the future seems like shaky ground, and the built-up frustration that follows from school work leads to a journey where in the calming presence of God, friends, and family, Trisha learns to lean on the faithful peace of God that is ever present, ever guarding, and ever guiding to those who seek His face—even while dealing with the re-entry of Paul into her life. A train ride, road trip, and awesome weekend later, it is clear that God is in control and Trisha is ready to face the world again and handle Paul being close—in fact, God clearly had a hand in their trains colliding, and both were blessed because of it!

This is a story of hope for where the road ahead is unclear—one that inspires faith in God’s leading and timing, and teaches love and forgiveness toward those He has placed in our path.

*Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. My deepest gratitude to the author, Amber Holcomb (Stokes), for a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
