“Private Justice”

10 06 2010

I read instead of watching TV. Novels are an entertaining diversion that immerses a person in a world not their own. Perhaps I should read more professional books, but I need to have diversion. This novel by Terri Blackstock is a murder-mystery within the Fire Department safety forces in the fictitious town of Newpointe, Louisiana. Terri has a knack of using characters that are Christian who are very human and vulnerable. Many will relate with the weaknesses of the flesh and the strength of God once they finally surrender a difficult situation to Him. It is uncomfortable in the fact that He often uses emotional and physical pain in our lives to bring us to maturity. It is hopeful in the fact that He could turn it around for good. The book highlights the value of marriage and its worthiness to work out issues, “til death do us part.” It stresses the prize of communication and humility in the context of a healthy relationship. The murder-mystery piques interest but the moral of the story is the main event.
