Praise For A Sister's Forgiveness

Anna Schmidt takes us back to Pinecraft, Fl and her Women of Pinecraft series with this compelling novel set in this Mennonite community. It’s a story about love of family, dealing with death and anger and finding forgiveness. It’s about learning to seek forgiveness from others and to give forgiveness. In Tessa’s journal she questions what mercy is and asks if that is what forgiveness is really all about. Your heart will be blessed by this story.

Schmidt's descriptions are so real and raw that you can empathize with the character's emotions.

This book caused me to cry and hurt for the families as I read this realistic story about how such a devastating incident of typical teenage poor choices caused a tragedy. Christians belief that they must forgive, but it would definitely take a strong person to live through such a situation. I read this book in one sitting. I recommend this book for mostly women from teens to mature. Great read that touches the heart.

Overall, I absolutely loved the plot of this and it provided great food for thought.
