Indemnity by Paula Wiseman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to review
Genre: Adult Christian Fiction
Description from Goodreads: After years of believing Chuck's affair is behind them, Bobbi's marriage is tested again when Tracy Ravenna resurfaces. Tracy's not alone, though. Jackson Charles Ravenna is the newest student in Bobbi's first grade class and the spitting image of her husband. When Chuck decides to pursue joint custody, they discover Jack isn't the only secret Tracy's been hiding.
As Tracy's past begins to threaten their future with Jack, Bobbi is forced to face the unsettling truth about God's grace. But this time, what will it cost to forgive the unforgivable?
My thoughts:Paula Wiseman has created a sequel that is just as engaging as the first book in this series. She uses Christian values to portray a family that is being torn apart by a mistake committed seven years ago.
Bobby has forgiven Chuck for his affair and they have patched up their marriage and are living a happy life. They discover that there was a child created when he strayed and now have to deal with the consequences of that mistake. Old feelings are dredge up and their marriage is on the pinnacle of becoming one of mistrust. The biggest problem is that now they have to deal with the mother of the illegitimate son.
I like how Paula Wiseman is able to fashion a story with real emotions and true to life circumstances. She does this well and is able to capture and retain the interest of her audience. As I reader I could empathize with the emotions of the characters. They are well portrayed and their situations are realistic.
This book deals once again with forgiveness and repentance. A huge emphasis is placed on the Savior, Jesus Christ, and his role in atoning for the sins of mankind. This is a book that will appeal to Christians and others who enjoy a great story.
I would recommend in a couple of places that you have access to a hankie or a box of tissues.
There will be a third book. The title is "Precedent".
