"Not one of us is perfect or without baggage, but together we can overcome that and build a great life together." ~Aaron Starke; Protecting Her Daughter by Lynette Eason
Would you risk everything, including your own life, to protect your child?
Zoe Collier faces that very scenario in Protecting Her Daughter by Lynette Eason. Not only does her daughter, Sophia, have diabetes, but she's also nearly been kidnapped, and the bad guys have now become even more aggressive and dangerous. At least Zoe has run to Wrangler's Corner, TN. The quiet town is home to the Starke brothers, who head up the protection detail for Zoe and Sophia. But will their efforts be enough to uncover the plot to steal Sophia?
I read this book over the same weekend as the Siesta Scripture Memory Team celebration (SSMT; hosted by Beth Moore). One common theme spoken of at the celebration and in this book was having support around you. Support could be friends, family, neighbors, law enforcement, etc. But our biggest support is God. He cherishes each of us and longs to be involved in our lives. And He also places people in our lives to encourage us along the journey.
That's one very evident thing I've enjoyed in reading Eason's Wrangler's Corner series. The Starke family and their friends come to the aid of people in trouble, no matter the risk it places on their own lives. Such sacrificial love for relative strangers is a beautiful glimpse at the overwhelming love and protection the Lord God feels for each one of us, whom He knows intimately. I really appreciate stories like Protecting Her Daughter, because they reflect the Lord's love for us so well.
Thank you to Lynette Eason and her publisher for allowing me to read an early copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
