Book Review: Above All Things

What would you do if you found out your spouse had an illicit love affair before he even knew you? What would you do if you found out that the love affair produced a child who now has to live with you?

Judd and Evette McGlin are happy and content in their life, expecting their first child until a fateful phone call, informing Judd he has a daughter by another woman. Accepting this child into their home comes with much strife and trying to forgive mistakes from the past. Struggles abound until a single discovery is isn’t about "perfect" people, it’s about excepting, forgiving, loving those God has provided for us in our families.

Deborah Raney has done another marvelous job with this novel. She tackles many hard issues head on, such as racial prejudice and the conflicts that often arise in such a situation. I have loved every book I have read by Raney and this was no exception, I finished this book in just two days. The characters were vibrant and alive. Their struggles were real and heartbreaking, but the power of faith in God and forgiveness were what prevailed. A highly recommended novel, one that will keep you turning pages well into the night!
