“I’ve asked God over and over again to make me strong enough to forgive, but everyday, when I go into the sitting room and Sasha’s not there with his pile of three-inch textbooks, I have to start all over again”. “But that’s what forgiveness is. You have to choose it again and again, maybe for the rest of your life”. – E. B. Roshan in Wrong Place, Right Time.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you.
This is a quick read set in the war torn make-believe world of Sevia. Boris and Anna meet at his uncle’s restaurant and are immediately drawn to each other. Unfortunately Boris is dealing with deep loss and grief that makes him question his Christian faith and his readiness to be in a relationship with Anna. As they navigate through many uncertainties and their feelings for each other, they both learn what is expected of them as children of God and eventually find the peace that they desire.
This book was more of a slow burn. It took me a while to get into it but when it eventually picked up, I was really curious to know where the story was going and how it would end. I found it difficult to relate with most of the characters and their struggles amidst an ongoing war however, the universal theme around forgiveness and love is what kept me going on till end. Some parts of the story were about very mundane things and at some point became a bit boring but overall It was a good story.
If you enjoy reading Christian fiction you may like this book.
