Women of Valley View: Callie

Author: Sharon Srock
Publisher: Pelican Book Group
October 2012
ISBN: 978-1-611111-194-6
Genre: Women’s fiction

Three dire circumstances. Three desperate prayers. One miracle to save them all.

Callie Stillman is drawn to the evasive girl who's befriended her granddaughter, but the last time Callie tried to help a child, her efforts backfired. Memories of the tiny coffin still haunt her.

Samantha and Iris Evans should be worried about homework, not whether they can pool enough cash to survive another week of caring for an infant while evading the authorities.

Steve Evans wants a second chance at fatherhood, but his children are missing. And no one seems to want to help the former addict who deserted his family.

For Steve to regain the relationship he abandoned, for his girls to receive the care they deserve, Callie must surrender her fear and rely on God to work the miracle they all need.

WOMEN OF VALLEY VIEW: CALLIE is Ms. Srock’s debut novel. It has a  heavy storyline—this is an author not afraid of tackling the issues. Callie is struggling over her guilt in her past where an innocent child was killed, and now she’s afraid to make a stand. Written in deep point of view, the characters will draw you in and quickly make you care. You’ll be moved to tears in this book, so keep a box of tissues close by.

If you like women’s fiction, then you won’t want to miss WOMEN OF VALLEY VIEW: CALLIE. If Ms. Srock’s subsequent books are anything like this one, she’s an author to watch. Good book. $15.99. 304 pages. 4 stars
