Book Review: A Place Called Blessing

"A Place Called Blessing" by John Trent with Annette Smith is a story based on the classic book "The Blessing" co-authored by Trent. The authors bring to life the concepts of the original manuscript for a new generation by telling the story of Josh, an orphan with a dark secret that haunts him for years. As an adult, he is introduced to unconditional love and forgiveness through a very special family, and his life is forever changed.

All I can say is "Wow!" I absolutely LOVED this book. I read it in one sitting because I simply couldn't put it down. 85% of the time I will choose non-fiction books over novels, but I am so, so glad I had the opportunity to read this one. It gave me goose bumps, made me cry, and deeply touched my heart. I highly recommend this great read to anyone, but particularly to anyone with a passion for children in the foster system.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the publisher's BookSneeze program in exchange for an honest review.
