Title: The Shepherd’s Voice
Author: Robin Lee Hatcher
Publisher: WaterBrook Press; 1st edition (July 18, 2000)
This is the second book I’ve read by ROBIN LEE HATCHER in less than a few weeks. When I was just halfway through the first, I ordered THE SHEPHERD’S VOICE. Just after finishing THE SHEPHERD’S VOICE, I began reading TROUBLE IN PARADISE. You might say I’ve become an instant fan of MS HATCHER’S.
As a writer I tend to edit stories as I read. When I don’t, it says a lot about the author. That there work – in my eyes – has all that is needed for a great story. A wonderful plot, perfect pace, amazing character with a faultless beginning, middle and end.
Being a leader in the prison ministry through my church, the second I realized THE SHEPHERD’S VOICE involved a man that had been incarcerated, I had to read it. I love the whole twist on a prodigal son. Oh how I loved the hero and heroine. All the characters are so well developed. MS HATCER does an amazing job in doing the unexpected. One would certainly not call it predictable.
Gabe Talmadge spent years in prison for a crime his father was all too quick to convict him of. At his wits end, Gabe heads back to his father’s home in hopes of food, shelter and work.
Akira Macauley doesn’t hesitate to help a man she finds in desperate need of help. When it becomes clear he needs food and a place to stay, she offers him a job. Though others may find her too trusting, Akira puts her trust in God, and does as He calls her to do.
Looks like I have many more books to catch up on reading of MS HATCHER’S.
