Love in the Balance Review

Love in the Balance 
Author:  Regina Jennings
Publisher:  Bethany House Publishers
ISBN #:  9780764209918
Pages:  360

This is the second novel by author, Regina Jennings, whose first novel is Sixty Acres and a Bride.  This current book the author continues the story of Molly Lovelace and Bailey Garner, who appeared in the first novel.  At first introduction, Molly seems like a very selfish and immature character however as the story progresses you’ll find that there is a lot more to Molly than meets the eye.  Bailey has known Molly for many years and dreams of marrying her one day.  Both characters go through struggles which force them to grow on their own and within their own relationship with each other. 

Ms. Jennings tells a story that really can engulf the reader.  Her character’s emotions and struggles really come alive for the reader.  The themes that are so poignantly revealed throughout the characters’ lives are love, faith, and forgiveness.  This is a great story full of characters that show that mistakes will be made in life but the love and grace of God is with us all.

(Feel free to take a look at my review of Sixty Acres and a Bride – review post  dated 1/5/13.)
