Kellen's Hope by Danie Marie

Debut novel alert! Don't miss this one!!! 

Kellen is in a major life predicament. She is with child, and doesn't know how the man she loves will take the news since they aren't together at the moment. Thus launches us following a dramatic and realistic story of Kellen Bruce's life. I never give too much away, but right off the bat Kellen's in-laws are far less than pleased. Her parents, their reaction is shocking! It just keeps unfolding from there. Donny, the father of her child, the man she loves, will he stay in her life for the sake of their child? Can they make it as a couple with what is going on in their lives?

Then the major stuff starts! Sweet pregnant Kellen suffers a blow that has been fatal to some. Now she is being pranked, or stalked, or.... this could be way more serious than anyone suspected. As her life falls down even more around her, Kellen struggles to hold on to God and his plan for her life. She grasps for understanding and can't quite sort out forgiveness in some areas. Her best friend and a new friend who is her Dr. become her lifelines, and there is a glimmer of a chance at romance, something past the tragic events that have beset her life. 

This is a wonderful story, filled with hope, based in a reality that is tangible.  Kellen's Hope is well worth the read, and maybe we will get another book that is connected to this one later on. I can't wait for the next book by this author! 

My copy of this book came from Story Cartel in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.

“A well-written page turner for those who enjoy mystery, conflict, and ultimately faith overcoming tragedy. I highly recommend Kellen’s Hope by Danie Marie.”

Heartbreak upon heartbreak leaves Kellen Carmichael alone and pregnant, her soul stained so bitter even her best friend Marla can't breach her silent prison. Just when she thought life couldn't worsen, annoying pranks become menacing acts and Kellen fears the lives of her and her unborn baby are in danger. 

Dr. Brent Gordon does his best to provide calm amidst the storms raging both within and around Kellen, but he can only pray she will trust the One who cares for her more than he does. Can Kellen reach out, and let go of her bitterness and forgive before it's too late?
