Fiction. But oh, what fiction it is.

John had been a pillar in his local church, but the loss of his family in a terrible accident destroyed all he’d known to be true. After cutting ties with everyone and moving across the country, he settled into a life of alcohol, women, and bar fights.

John wanted to turn his back on God and the beliefs he grew up with, but an encounter with a mystical stranger makes him think twice. Can John wade through the trauma of his past and lifelong pain of his heart to connect with God once again?

“Home” for Alice was a suffocating prison of sex and drugs until a suicide attempt took her to Redwood, New York. A new relationship with Jesus brought life from her ashes, but memories of her childhood still escape her, leaving a void nothing can fill. Can a surprising move and chance at love finally bring light to the darkness?


My review:

Finding Home is an absolute treat to read. Jesse’s writing reminds me of Frank Peretti’s, but the voice is all his own. The characters are alive and the storytelling is brilliant.

And the story; Oh the story! He had me deeply involved from the first page, and in tears several times before it was over. I surely hope he plans a sequel.

Comment: I read an advance copy. And I'm glad I read it on a midnight flight, because I was weeping before I was through. Wow, what a book
