I decided close to a year and a half is long enough to deprive oneself of chocolate. I can't bear another holiday season with out it. So that's it. Stop this crazy train and let me off.

And pass the Oreos.

Healing Sands by Nancy Rue & Stephen Arterburn

Healing Sands is the story of  Ryan Coe’s journey through the most difficult time in her life.  Her son has been accused of a crime that she is convinced he never could have committed.  Her anger has already destroyed her marriage and now threatens to push her son beyond her reach. In an attempt to regain her self-control and reach her son, she seeks the help of Dr. Crisp of Healing Choices Clinic.  This story of surrender and healing pulls you in and leaves you wanting more.

I really enjoyed this novel and could not put it down.  The characters were so real and their situations were so intriguing, I just couldn’t get enough.  At the end of each chapter, I found myself saying – oh, just one more!  I’m always hesitant to read christian fiction, not knowing what to expect, but I would recommend this book to anyone.  I think anyone could identify with the struggles that the main characters wrestle with and may even learn something about how to deal with their own issues.
