Trail to Forgiveness by Cheri Swalwell is a Christian Fiction book. It is Book 3 in the The Redemption of Green Pines. I enjoy Christian Fiction quite a bit and I have read several of Cheri Swalwell's book and she is a wonderful author. 

Jace is a Youth Pastor at a church. His wife dies in an accident and he hires Holly to watch his children when he works. Holly was a volunteer in the Youth Ministry, so Jace knows her well and trusts her with his children. Holly is in her 30's and has never married, as the one man she thought she would married died when they were teenagers. She has always felt that God has wanted her to date with the intention of marrying. Jace has had growing feelings for Holly and has asked her a time or 2 if the 2 of them have a possible future together. Jace and Holly come under attack from the Church as some believe there was an affair before the passing of his wife. Jace and Holly are trying to stand strong throughout the attack. They also discover that the children of the Youth Group might be under attack also. His son Noah and his friend Drew have been especially close lately and it is a worry to Jace. All of a sudden Drew is distant from Noah and doesn't want to attend Youth Group. A newer member to the church is also an undercover Cop. Officer Dave does some sleuthing and he intends to find out if there is something evil happening to the Church. Do Jace and Holly have a future together? What is the mystery happening in the Youth Group? Is there something deep happening to the Church? |

WOW, this book is jam packed full of mystery, romance and more. The plot starts out with a bang and the story just keeps getting more interesting and intriguing as I read the book. I really like how Jace and Holly really stick to the faith and rely on God to get them through the attacks and their plans for a future together. Officer Dave is a new Christian, but he steps in and helps get to the bottom of the Attacks going on within the Church. Trail To Forgiveness is a book about Faith, standing up for oneself when under attack, Romance, and Family. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Fiction Romance. FANTASTIC Book!

More from Cheri

Journey Back Home, Book 2 in The Redemption of Green Pines, was supposed to be a stand alone book. When I finished writing it, I realized there was so much more to the community of Green Pines, and also so much more to Holly. Who was Holly? Why was she able to help Jace through his grief? What brought her to Green Pines?

As a result, I wrote a prequel to Journey Back Home, sharing with readers Holly’s story which became Book 1, Adventure’s Invitation. That book shares the backstory of Holly and her family and I highly recommend reading it. It will make Trail to Forgiveness, Book 3 in The Redemption of Green Pines, that much more meaningful when you get to spend more time with Holly’s family!

Trail to Forgiveness picks up literally two hours after Journey Back Home ends. God unfolded the storyline as I was writing it. While Jace and Holly are busy dealing with false rumors and a church that wants to fire him, Noah and his friends are dealing with members of the youth group who are out to get them too. Thankfully, though, Officer Dave, now a new believer, sticks around and helps Jace and Paul uncover what’s happening. It’s not what you think … but worse!

Also in Trail to Forgiveness, we get to discover more about the foursome who works for Holly, former youth group members of Jace: Addie, her best friend Wynn, Zane and his sidekick Owen. Not only are there secrets circulating in the youth group, but Wynn has some strong secrets of her own.

Pre-order Book 4, Road to Freedom, to discover what secrets Wynn’s been hiding from Holly, her mentor, as well as her friends. Is Zane hiding something from Wynn also?

There is so much more to discover about the community of Green Pines. I hope you enjoy getting to know them as much as I do!
