Sweet Forgiveness

Hannah Farr, New Orleans fan favorite, is having nothing to do with the latest craze sweeping the world. Is it a new fad diet? The latest exercise to give Britney Spear “Hit Me Baby One More Time” abs? No, no- because Hannah would be all over that!

So what is it?

Forgiveness Stones. Hannah wants no part of it.


Because Hannah has some secrets and she would rather they stay in the dark… much like the Forgiveness Stones that showed up at her house one day.

But the things we want to stay hidden usually find a way to the surface- and one day, Hannah’s secrets come bubbling to the top. It’s when this happens that Hannah really begins to understand what forgiveness is all about and how strong she truly is.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I cried like a baby during Lori’s debut, THE LIFE LIST- so I made sure I had my tissues ready. Oddly, I did not cry- although there was a moment or two that I could have, I think.

Lori takes on truth and family dynamics- two ideas that don’t always go together nicely. Because, think about it- in each family dynamic- there is a truth and then there is a TRUTH. But, Lori has Hannah dig deep into herself to confront the TRUTH.

As the reader goes along the path with Hannah, they find out why Hannah has stones and who might be deserving of their own stones. There is a question in the story that never truly gets resolved 100%- leaving readers to guess or make up their own theories- but the main point of the story is Hannah and learning about her truth vs TRUTH. And how that colors her life, her relationships, everything.

Refreshing and honest, with a heroine who is neither perfectly wonderful, nor perfectly awful- just beautifully flawed.

    I didn’t realize that this was written by the author of The Life List. I really liked that book, and I’ve had my eye on this one. This review, and that fact, may move this up the “to read” list.

    • YES!!! So, it’s as good as THE LIFE LIST- but different. I cried like a baby during TLL- I just felt emotionally satisfied with this book. LMK when you start reading it- I want to hear your thoughts šŸ™‚
