Grieving and bitter, Beth Dunne blames her husband, Jack, for the death of their five-month-old son. After a three-year marital separation, Beth embarks on a pilgrimage to an orphanage in Valselo, seeking forgiveness and peace. Guilt-plagued Jack Dunne longs for reconciliation with his wife, but he gave up on God when he buried his son.
Enter matchmaking priest, Father Mark, the facilitator for the trip to the orphanage. Long-time friend, Father Mark appeals to Jack to travel with the group, claiming the orphanage needs financial support. When Jack offers to write a check, Father Mark convinces Jack to make the trip by telling him that Beth would be there.
I admit to being a little confused about the prologue. Was it necessary, and how did it relate to the story? I pressed on and was glad I did. The prologue introduced and set up a particularly sweet character that you’ll enjoy getting to know later in the story.
This is the first story I’ve read by K. M. Daughters. It won’t be my last. Resurrected Love is a beautifully crafted story of forgiveness and reconciliation with a powerful Christian theme. Congratulations from this reader! 4 Stars!
