I couldn’t put down this book. A Place Called Blessing by John Trent is both heartwarming and inspirational. The story is engaging from beginning to end.

The story follows a boy growing up in the foster care system, starting life with two strikes against him. Then an accident occurred that scarred him, until he meets a family who blessed him more than he imagined.

Though it’s fictional, the characters showed such honor and compassion that they inspired me to be more open and loving to people, despite their background. When committed love is shown, even the hardest hearts can melt.

My only complain about the book is the abrupt ending. Other than that, I highly recommend this book. I have not read The Blessing, also by John Trent that outlines the principles illustrated in the story. I imagine it would be pretty good as well.

Disclosure:  Thomas Nelson provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for this review. Opinions are entirely my own.
