Debbie Roome – Embracing Change

From the Back Cover:

Embracing Change is an inspirational story of personal challenge. When Sarah Johnson’s fiancé is killed by a hijacker in South Africa, Sarah carries out his wish to continue with their plan and moves to New Zealand, taking his ashes to scatter there. In her grief she hasn’t counted on her gradual healing coming from two unexpected sources: Jesus Christ, and His new plan for her: Joel Baxter.

But will Joel’s old flame, Mandy, succeed in destroying Sarah’s fragile progress in both her spiritual and earthly paths? And will she ever break free of the oppressive power still held over her by the hijacker who murdered her fiancé and attacked her, too? It takes a journey halfway back across the world for Sarah to face her demons, and finally forgive.

Amanda’s Review:

I found this novel intriguing, primarily because I’ve recently made some new South African friends and they way they describe South Africa is exactly how Debbie Roome portrays it. Of course, the journey of Sarah, not only to a new country, but to a new man and a whole new life was captivating as well. This novel gave me some insight into what it’s like to shift not only from one country to another, but to another culture as well.

I especially loved the way Sarah confronted her past in the end, but you’ll have to read it to find out for yourself. It brought many a tear to my eye. And Joel, was a wonderful example of Christianity, as well as being the kind of guy every woman dreams about. If you love a good romance, read Embracing Change.
