“A Simple Faith” by Rosalind Lauer was a very good book to read during the Christmas season. Although it had nothing to do with Christmas it did convey the spirit of giving and receiving as well as trying to have faith and hope when the odds are against you.
Elsie is a little person and has vowed not to have children because she is afraid that they will inherit her condition. However, Ruben is not accepting her decision. Elsie and Ruben were in a car accident along with her Dad and others in their community. Elsie’s father was killed as was the other driver. This book also looks at how post-traumatic stress can affect so many people after a horrific incident. This story was very comforting in the way the characters began to see how it is possible to overcome a tragedy with hope and love.
I was sent a free print copy of this book by Night Owl Reviews in return for my honest assessment of the book.
