About the Book
Name of book: Almond Street Mission
Author: June Foster
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 6, 2016
When Glorilyn Neilson’s nineteen-year-old brother, Tannon, goes missing without a trace, she’s frantic. Prayer and volunteering at the local homeless shelter in El Camino must fill the time until her sibling returns. But her sapphire eyes and auburn hair inadvertently cause a stir among the male population at the center. Her life changes one evening when she’s attacked by a burly vagrant intent on rape in the alley behind the building.
Jeremiah Goodman loves the Lord, but he’s homeless. When he witnesses a foul-mouthed vagrant overpowering one of the volunteers at the homeless shelter, he defends her, saving her from unwanted advances.
When Glorilyn offers him a way of escape from his impoverished lifestyle, he can’t tell her why he must live the life of a vagrant. What powerful secret keeps him on the streets?
Disclaimer: I was provided a complimentary copy but all thoughts are my honest opinion of this book and I was not required to leave a good review.
I enjoyed this book alot. It deals with many issues that are not easy but the author did so in a good way pulling it all together . Some of the issues that were included in the story line were homelessness, an attempted rape attack, and leaving all of the comfortable behind to follow God's leading. Jeremiah and Glorilyn are two of the main characters in the story. There was alot they overcame but the ending was beautiful and I really loved how the author tied it all together at the end. Good read.
