Anessia's Quest by Karen Arnpriester Book Review

Anessia's Quest:

 Restoration of a Shattered Life, Fulfillment of a Profound Destiny

By Karen Arnpriester
Follow the life of a young girl into adulthood. Celebrate the journey and her choices that change a heartbreaking situation into a glorious life of love, truth, compassion, and joy.   Pagne finds the love of God and the support of her Heavenly Angel through life's emotional roller coaster.  An angel that protects, leads and assures Pagne that she is not alone by using an unusual method of communication (assaulting and delighting the senses).    Pagne shares healing, tears, and laughter with a group of broken people that become her family.   She discovers the purpose of her life and the revelation of God's destiny for her.  Pagne will eventually understand the powerful ripple she created as she lived her life.   She was not an accident, she was placed on Earth with divine intent.
This book was quite different from other Christian fiction I have read and I highly recommend it to readers.   It is a story of abuse, pain, alcoholism, drug abuse, abandonment, foster homes, group homes, and then of hope, forgiveness, love, compassion, and God's healing, and provision of Guardian Angels for us.    Reading this book made me feel hopeful and joyful !    I celebrated with Pagne (short for "Champagne", due to her mother's love for liquor) and cried tears of sadness right along with her. Pagne endured much but seemed to have such resilience and strength about her.  Her guardian angel helped her and comforted her as well as other characters in the story.     This book is worth the time!    Definitely spend some time reading this one soon!
