Not by Sight: A Novel (Ozark Mountain Trilogy)


About this book

Her Sister Couldn’t Be Alive … Could She?
It had to be Riley Jo. She was certain. . .wasn’t she? But when Abby Cummings tells her mother she thought she saw her sister at the store, her mother quickly dismisses the idea. After all, Riley Jo and their father had been missing for years. Presumably dead. Yet Abby cannot ignore her intuition. Telling her friend J. D., they investigate. But J. D. may know more about the disappearance than he’s telling, or even realizes. And as they work to uncover what happened, all they have to go on is blind faith. Will it be enough. . .especially considering what the truth might be?

 

My Review

This turned out to be a very good book. It started kind of slow and appeared it was going to be very predictable. However, once again, this author added some twists to the story that kept it engaging and me wanting more.

I liked the main character, Abby, a lot. She’s new in her faith and trying her best to grow in faith and trust of God. Past mistakes hurt her credibility with her family and causes her a great deal of pain. Her grandfather was a great teacher and mentor for her, though he even questioned what she really saw. I struggled a lot with the mom. Of course, if I were in her shoes having gone through the heart ache she had I might be the same way or even worse.

This author and publisher brings readers a strong message in their stories and Not By Sight is no exception. This story touched my heart and I could feel for the characters and the pain they were experiencing. Not my favorite Kathy Herman book, but it was definitely worth the time to read it and I look forward to see what develops in this trilogy.

  1. Sounds like a good book. I’ve gotten into stories with complicated circumstances and painful problems. I think while I’m dealing with my own painful problems it helps to know that others have the same thoughts and feelings I do during struggles. So this book sounds like a good read.

    Thanks!

  2. Have read some of her books. Can be suspenseful. We sometimes need to read stories of redemption to remember what is available to all of us.

  3. I have enjoyed several of Kathy Herman’s books. I do remember one of her other books that started out pretty slow, and I wasn’t sure if it was going to get off the ground, but it turned out to be a very good read. I would love to win a copy of Not by Sight. Thank you for offering a copy.

  4. I read fast, and it’s hard to keep good Christian fiction, especially romance, in my kindle. Thank you for offering a copy of NOT BY SIGHT. What a nice blessing!
