3. Compelling Summer Read – Unholy Bonds
Unholy Bonds by Leslie Lynch follows newlyweds Lannis and Ben (From Lynch’s first novel, Hijacked) as they seek justice for Lannis. However, the story takes several interesting and surprising turns. The author creates a chilling villain, but this book is an excellent illustration that each person always has the choice to change. Unholy Bonds allows us to see into the mind of a unfeeling rapist, but Lynch also shows us that forgiveness can be a road to recovery, not only with the victim, but with the perpetrator as well. Highly recommend!UnholyBonds

  1. I own a Kindle copy of Stealing Jenny. I couldn’t put the story down! I’m also an NFP instructor for CCL who is trying to deliver the message and joy of using the Sympto-Thermal Method. I enjoy your illustrations in Family Foundations!

  2. Is it too late too enter for the kindle version of Emily’s Hope. My husband and I just finished reading “A Subtle Grace”. Thank you again for the gift.
