Book Review: The House on Malcolm Street by Leisha Kelly

Leah Breckenridge's life is unfair. How could God take away both her husband and baby? And on top of that, there is no more money and she doesn't dare look to her father for help. She turns to her only hope, her late husband's aunt who has invited them to visit. With her young daughter's strong faith challenging her at every turn, Leah is constantly confronted by her bitterness against God.
As Leah settles into her new home, she begins to heal and find hope for her future again. Will she be able to finally trust God with her hopes and fears and find her faith again?

Grab your box of Kleenex for a great story that looks into the hard time of life. I really loved this story. The  characters were real hurting people who were struggling with hard issues and it was great to watch them grow and heal together!

Available September 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Thank you to Revell Publishers for a free copy of this book to review.

Nice review!

I thought that The House on Malcolm Street was an interesting, but heavy read. I have read several books by Leisha Kelly and enjoyed Julia’s Hope, Emma’s Gift and Katie’s Dream.

The House on Malcolm Street was not a light hearted story. The issues it deals with are heavy and make for a daunting read sometimes. Does it have a lot of meaning packed into one novel? Yes, it is likely one you won’t forget about, but it’s kind of a rainy day book, if you know what I mean.

I have also written a more in-depth review on my own site:
