What They Are Saying About The Passing Of Paradise

The Passing of Paradise takes readers from the bliss of love to the abuse of a spouse. Written with compassion and Christian insights, this story examines a difficult situation in the light of the Word of God.

Kendra’s unsophisticated innocence will touch readers’ hearts. The author has dramatically contrasted the good and the evil. Eloquent writing and well-defined characters take this issue to the minds of readers, as they wonder what Kendra will decide. God’s Word on the subject of marriage is quoted and discussed in the context of the story. There are a series of twists and turns that will alternately surprise and shock readers. An interesting touch was setting the story in the 1950’s. There were more taboos against divorce during that time, which made it an even more difficult decision.

The Passing of Paradise was a well-written book about an often unspoken sin.
