Book Review: Never Let You Go by Erin Healy

Never Let You Go is a suspenseful story about a single mother trying to cope while surrounded by problems, both natural and spiritual. Before I read this book, I read a review that compared it to Frank Peretti’s books about spiritual warfare. While there were some similarities, it didn’t really remind me of Peretti’s books. A book this good can certainly stand on its own.

The main character, Lexi, has been abandoned by her husband and family. Her daughter is the anchor of her life, and she is determined to make a “normal” home for them, even if it means working two jobs and having very little material comforts. Lexi is an example of how a person can depend on God, even when it seems things are hopeless. I don’t want to spoil the ending for new readers, but be assured her faith in God was her strength when it appeared Lexi would surely fail.

I finished this book in one night; there was not a place where I wanted to lay it down. Unfortunately, Lexi’s life parallels many women I know, and I could almost feel her pain.

This is a book that you won’t forget as soon as the last page is read.
