Book: It Never Occurred to Her

Author: Michelle Jester

Genre: Contemporary Religious Fiction, Women’s Religious Fiction, Contemporary Christian Fiction

Release date: November 28, 2021

For two years Gabriel has followed every lead, no matter how small, in the hope of finding his wife who has been kidnapped. He and the police always seem to be one step behind, until investigators give him information that helps him launch the plan to find her.

When Lena looks up into the eyes of her husband, who she hasn’t seen in two years, she is humiliated and wants nothing more than to run before he recognizes her. And so she does. It’s only when she faces a desperate situation that she is forced to return and ask for his help.

As fate twists its way through both of their lives, they realize it doesn’t matter how much they have prepared to face the realities of losing someone, or finding them again, redemption is in letting go of the past and finding a future just off the beaten path.

Contemporary Christian Fiction is a wonderful genre that I really enjoy. It Never Occurred to Her by Michelle Jester is the most recent book in this genre that I have read. Michelle Jester is also a "new to me" author. 

WOW, first of all I have to say major KUDOS to the Author, Michelle Jester, for give the readers a warning at the forefront of the book in regards to the Sensitive topics in the book that might Trigger some readers. The main characters in the book, Gabriel and Lena are a great couple. Gabriel is really devoted to finding his wife who was kidnapped over 2 years ago. Once Gabriel does locate Lena, Lena is ashamed and doesn't really want her husband to see her.  Lena is a victim of Human Trafficking and I really LOVE how the author writes about a very real crisis in a sensitive way. The book is over 500 pages, so I took about 2 days to read it, as I didn't really want to put the book down. The Mystery, Suspense, Twists and Turns and the LOVE Gabriel and Lena have for one another really kept me intrigued in the storyline. Be prepared for a roller coaster of emotions when reading this book! I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who enjoys Contemporary Christian Fiction with a bit of Suspense and real life situations. GREAT BOOK!

More from Michelle

When I first started writing this novel, it was because of a dream I had. I woke in the middle of the night crying, sweating, and praising God. I immediately got up, went to my computer and started writing about the dream. I was weeping the entire time and barely able to see through my tears.

In the dream, I was homeless, alone, and had drifted from God. I was hungry and went into a food kitchen to eat. I was dirty, smelled terrible, and missed Larry so much, only I knew I could never go home. I had done too much and had too much done to me to ever make it back to him.

After the person in the food kitchen put the food on my plate, I looked up and it was my husband, Larry. I was humiliated and desperately didn’t want him to recognize me. I was about to leave when in the dream Larry’s face turned to Jesus and He said, “I have been looking for you.”

That dream became the cornerstone of this novel.
