FTC FYI: I received a review copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Placing her baby girl for adoption isn’t the mistake Ally is running away from, but everyone else seems to think it is. As Ally tries to move forward in her life, her past keeps pulling her back, and she wonders if she will ever find true love again. Only holding onto hope can help Ally find the peace she’s seeking.
Discovering Peace is another triumph for Jennifer Ann Holt. In reading this book, I enjoyed seeing the other side of adoption. What happens after the mother gives her child to strangers to raise and love as their own. I really enjoyed the alternating points of view from Ally and Livy. While I was reading, I found that Livy amazed me. She is a great character and what she does for someone in this story brought tears to my eyes. I couldn't put this book down at times. It is usually not too often that I will stay up way too late to read, but I easily slipped into Ally and Livy's world because they are such easy characters to love. While reading their stories, I found that they weren't the only ones that needed peace, others did too. Hope, love and peace can be found through Christ and the Atonement.
5 out of 5 stars. If you are just finding out about Jennifer and her books, I would start with the first one, Delivering Hope. It is $.99 on Kindle!
