ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Daphne Self, writing as
D.M. Webb, is the author of 30 Days: A Devotional Memoir (2013), Mississippi Nights (2012), and I Lost My Hat (2009). Her children’s devotional, Balaam and the Donkey, appeared on www.devokids.com (April 2013). Between her writing the next novel, marketing her published works, and reviewing books on her blog, Rebel Book Reviews, she volunteers as an ACFW judge for First Impressions, Genesis, and Carol Awards. Her travels and life with her family makes life interesting and provides plenty of material for storylines.
D.M. has a well-developed story with many interesting characters.
David’s secret is not spoken of directly too soon so it will keep the reader wondering exactly what he is hiding. He did frustrate me a bit, I wanted him to just get over being angry at his brother but I do understand that when we are deeply wounded forgiveness can be hard.
Jeremy is a very likable character who just wants the relationship he once had with his brother back.
The other characters in the book are all seemed to have their own personality that was well-developed. I did sometimes have trouble keeping track of who was who and their relationship with each other.
Overall, an enjoyable read with a lot to think about and reflect on, especially in regards to forgiveness.
