Lonely Road of Faith

Thank you to author Merideth Deeds and Silver Dagger Book Tours for the gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Synopsis

Anna Lynn finds herself barefoot and pregnant when she is forced to move back to her hometown of Sulfer Springs. While all hope seems lost, she begins to rebuild her life and her faith as she perseveres through many trials and tribulations that life throws at her.

On one fateful December night, Anna runs into Billy Denham, an old flame, who had stolen a piece of her innocent heart as a young teenager. Unaware of the demons that he faces, she allows him into her and baby Johnny’s life. Anna, nor Billy, have any idea what is in store for them after their paths cross yet again.

Review

Merideth Deeds is a new to me author and I am glad that I was introduced to her. I loved the story line that Merideth created and I really enjoyed the characters she created. For me, faith plays a large part in my life and my Granny was a huge part of my life. I connected with Anna Lynn’s character right off the bat, as these are things that are very important to her as well, and enjoyed her story of loss and trying to rebuild. I definitely identified with Anna Lynn and really liked learning about her life. I don’t want to give too much away (no spoilers here), but I thought the story line of Anna Lynn and Billy’s relationship, both when they were younger and when their paths cross again, was such a real story that people experience everyday. It was refreshing to read a story that was not tied up in a nice neat bow in the end. I really enjoyed this book and hope to read more books by Merideth Deeds in the future.

About the Author

I am a native of Texas, born and raised in a small town. I graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree and from Tarleton State University in 2019 with a Master’s in English and Curriculum. I currently am a full time teacher, mother, and wife.

God has put writing on my heart in order to inspire and encourage others that are currently or have experienced similar tribulations in life. My hope is that my stories will give others hope and comfort through the trials they face throughout their lives.

My first story, Lonely Road of Faith, is inspired by real-life events and me and my husband’s broken paths that eventually led back to each other and to God.
