But FAITH can make us a fine pillow.”

 mythoughtsI enjoyed this story, although I think it would have been good if I had read the preceding book She Who Knows – A Tale of the Heart which was the first in this series. This book can easily be read as a standalone, however as Barbara Bras has gone to great lengths to develop believable and lovable characters, I would personally recommend reading She Who Knows first.

She Who Knows No Fear – Another Tale of the Heart tells a sweet story of love and perseverance with a powerful underlying message.

 The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely Your goodness and Love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23:1-6 

There was an enticing amount of Hawaiian Folklore intertwined within the story which made for an interesting read. Love’s journey throughout the book was beautiful, with Cassie and Zack bonding a life-long friendship into a marriage based upon selfless love, trust, and companionship. However, the love that was most pleasing throughout the book was that of God – the reminder that we need never feel discomfort or anxiety over anything, as He has our hearts, minds, and souls in His grasp.

I would recommend this delightful book to anyone who worries unduly … and also to those who don’t.

I received an Advanced Readers’ Copy of this book from the author via CelebrateLit. I wasn’t at any time under obligation to provide a positive review.

In 2015, Barbara Bras left her career to pursue her dream of serving God. She believed that her first step was to share the amazing story of God’s blessings in her life. Wrapped in God’s Grace, A Life Rediscovered does so through a trio of narratives. It begins with the story of her son’s miraculous adoption and the challenging years that followed, her grandparents’ remarkable survival in Armenia, and her own quest for purpose and love. Once written, Barbara realized her life’s new purpose. Captured by St. Paul in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, she views her writing as a tribute to the God who comforts and strengthens us in hardships and trials, and as her mission to encourage others. Her first novel, She Who Knows, A Tale of the Heart,seeks to inspire and encourage. The sequel, She Who Knows No Fear: Another Tale of the Heart,released in December 2017. Solo Deo Gloria, To God Alone Be the Glory
