Never Look Back by Kathy Herman: Book Review

Ivy Griffith has been in prison because she covered up the death of a high school classmate ten years ago.  Having gained control over her drug habit and having paid her debt to society for her crime, she wants to begin afresh.

In her heart beats that of a loving mother of her seven-year-old son, Montana, and Ivy wants to keep him safe from her past and give him a safe future.  But Montana needs and wants a male influence in his life and that influence presents himself in the form of Rue Kessler.

Is Rue just what Ivy and Montana need and what she's been praying for, or is he going to bring further trouble into their lives?  After all, Rue's history is not all that stellar.

Author, Kathy Herman, brings to the pages characters with real troubles and real life situations and reveals their very real struggles.  The characters discover the depth of God's forgiveness for themselves and others.  They discover the beauty of second chances.

A good read and a good array of characters and plot.  I really like Montana.  A little boy with a big heart - one to cherish as his mother, Ivy, does.

DISCLOSURE:  I borrowed this book from the local public library.  All opinions expressed here are my own.
