Book Review: Never Let You Go

Poor Lexi! For seven years, she’s been acting as a single mom, trying to rebuild a safe and happy life for herself and her daughter. Working two jobs and sharing an apartment with her lifelong best friend who watches Molly in exchange for rent, Lexi is exhausted.

Suddenly, though, her past comes back to haunt her with a vengeance. Her husband returns as mysteriously as he disappeared, wanting to rebuild the relationship with his family. Her estranged mother interferes, pushing this to happen. The man who murdered her sister is up for parole, and the man who led her husband into the world of drug addiction and dealing threatens her daughter in an attempt to force her to testify on that man’s behalf.

A fairly new Christian, Lexi struggles desperately to understand where God is in the midst of these multiple threats, clinging to her daughter with determination to preserve and protect.

If you haven’t guessed yet, this book was hard to set down! Erin Healy’s first solo novel is intense; it was so fun to read. Yet the message of hope and forgiveness and restoration and God’s faithfulness through all His children face came clearly through at the book’s perfect end.

I’m happy to recommend this read. Thank you, Thomas Nelson, for sending a copy for my review.
