STORY-LINE LOVE’S PRAYER BY MELISSA STORM:

Ben Davis’ life is never the same after his brother killed himself.  He sets all his dreams and ambitions aside to care for his mother.  At twenty-six,  he’s a delivery boy and stocker for the local grocery.  Far from what he had planned for his life, Ben’s depressed and considering suicide.  However, his alcoholic mother depends on him and in a small way so does Maisie, the manager of the grocery.  Sending a prayer to God, he sets in motion events destined by God.  Ben’s not sure he believes in God, however, God believes in him.

Summer Smith, new college graduate, has no idea what she wants to do with her life. When her Aunt offers her a two month job in her floral shop while she’s on a cruise, Summer jumps at the chance.  She has two months of free room and board, as well as, time to decide the course of her life.

God has a plan and sets it in motion for Ben and Summer.  Two people in desperate need, will they find love, hope, and renewal of life.  My romance book reviews of Love’s Prayer follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Love’s Prayer by author Melissa Storm‘s an intense story of alcoholism, depression, desperation, indecision, and faith.  It is also a story of God’s guidance and love for us.  Ben Davis is a sad man considering suicide;  filled with feelings of guilt, unworthiness, and depression.  Alone with a depressed alcoholic mother and in a dead-in job, he gave us his dreams to care his mother.   Ben faces many ugly facts as we journey through this book.  His prayer to God will bring a tear to your eye;  unsure how to talk to God, he stumbles through his request.  God hears every prayer, whether the prayer‘s by an articulate person or a novice.

Summer’s a woman filled with indecision;  without direction for her life and afraid any decision she makes will be wrong.  These two are perfect for each other.  Storm filled this book with deep emotion which makes it hard to read at times.  Healing comes with faith and friends who believe in them.  Melissa Storm faced, head-on, subjects which are hard to talk and read about.  She showed how we fall into the trap of depression and indecision, yet, there is always hope with help from friends and God.   Summer’s appearance in Sweet Grove sparked a desire for renewal in Ben.
