Book Review: Rachel’s Contrition by Michelle Buckman

Rachel’s Contrition is a book about a woman who lost a child (two if you consider her son who wants nothing to do with her,) is in the middle of a separation from her husband and in the midst of a nervous breakdown to name just a few.  I felt for Rachel from page one.  I felt like I knew her and wanted to help and comfort her through all of the hardship she’d experienced. She never had anyone to really support her through the tough times other than a quirky teenager who came and went as she pleased and was very puzzling throughout the book. A mysterious death of another person she knew well kept the mystery going in the book as well as stories of Rachel’s past.   

There are many twists and turns in this book and “who done its.” Even three quarters of the way through the book, the reader is left wondering what truly happened to her daughter.  Will Rachel learn to let go and let God take over?  You will have to read and find out for yourself!

The book was very descriptive and a pleasure to read from cover to cover.  I enjoyed it and look forward to reading other works by Michelle Buckman!

I received this book free from Sophia Press Institute as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
