I reviewed this book for You Gotta Read and it was amazing! Check out the review. I highly recommend it!

If an old fashioned tender romance with a deeper purpose than just your ordinary romance novel is what you are seeking, then search no longer, you have now found it. Journey to Forgiveness is a tale that is intricately woven with both romance and a strong sense of faith. I have so much to say about this book but let me just start with the characters.

Jenny's character was a woman who had one he

Jenny Hinson must go live with her aunt and find employment so she can help her family survive. Since her father has abandoned them she feels she must provide. Many surprises await her, she has never been to a big city nor lived among electricity. She meets Austin Grant in quite a comical misunderstanding. When she continues to run into him, she can't believe everyone is so drawn to him and can't see him for who he really is (or who she believes him to be). Jenny is a dependent, fun loving, quic ...more

Journey to Forgiveness is a delightful story of a young woman who comes to Chicago to help support her mother and siblings back home in rural Tennessee. It is a heart-warming story of love and forgiveness—with a healthy and fun dose of humor thrown in. It is a novel with a decidedly Christian message where the gospel is presented in an easy, unforced manner. The interplay between Jenny Hinson and Austin Grant—the main characters—is certainly memorable. Jenny is stubborn and suspicious with a sec ...more

Laurean Brooks writes the kind of book I like. Engaging characters, snappy dialogue, and enough plot and action to keep the pages turning. This sweet romance was just right--I recommend it. Celia Yeary

Laurean definitely has a fun writing style. The main character, Jenny, is always getting herself into trouble and funny situations with her overactive imagination and lack of control over her tongue. In some places, I thought the phrasing or dialogue could be tweaked a little to make it more smooth or realistic, but for the most part I really enjoyed it. I loved that they went on a mission trip to help people right in their own area! That really impressed me, and I loved that Austin wanted to do ...more

This book is a sweet Christian romance with a humorous story of mistrust. The characters are so different and enjoyable. The author has a unique still of writing in getting the message across. The message is knowing the scriptures doesn't make it easy to live them such as Jenny's problem with the tongue and her struggle to forgive. This is a story of love and forgiveness. I recommend this author. I loved this book. I was given a copy for an honest review.

This is a great story. When Jenny comes to live with her Aunt Violet her whole life changes. She makes sure that Jenny has everything that she needs. Jenny and Austins story will have you laughing one minute and in tears the next. It is amazing how Austin helps to rebuild the town the tornado destroyed. You will feel God working in this story.

Laurean Brooks has written a story from the heart. Her characters are ones that everyone can relate to--I certainly saw myself in Jenny, as she opens her mouth, inserts her foot, talks without thinking, and acts first, seeking forgiveness later. Her love story is sweet, and worth the time and comedic twists and turns to see Jenny and Austin through to their Happily Ever After.

Ms. Brooks faith shines through her writing, and if you enjoy sweet romance, you'll find yourself engaged in this rich st
