Review of Forsaken

Shelley Ring



Lara Blake is determined not to fall in love again, but her mother-in-law has other plans.

Naomi Blake used to care about God’s will for her life. Then her son died, and her faith with him. Naomi is on a crash course to take her own life next, but Lara isn’t so cooperative.

Lara loves Naomi desperately. She will not let the older woman go without a fight, and Naomi proves a worthy adversary. Lara believes if Naomi would just go back to church healing would begin.

Fighting the pull of death with the power of life, Lara realizes Naomi isn’t the only one who needs saving. Faith is not easy, but when you throw in a therapy Rottweiler, a knight in spit-shining armor, and a suicidal old woman, it’s downright scary. Lara almost has it figured out when Naomi seems to get her death wish. Have both women been FORSAKEN?

My Review of Forsaken:  
Shelley Ring's first novel involves a modern-day version of the book of Ruth from the Bible which happens to be my favorite book of Bible.   The mother-in-law, Naomi, is not always the easiest character to love so it truly is an act of love for Lara to remain with her after the death of her husband and Naomi's son.  I highly recommend this novel as you will likely laugh, cry, and wonder if you could ever do the same things that the characters are doing.  If you're looking for a good book to read over the holidays, try this one!   It is sure to give you hours of blissful reading!
