Song of the Brokenhearted Review and Giveaway!

Ava has a loving family, a beautiful house, and a solid faith. 
Suddenly, her ideal life will be completely broken . . . in the best of ways.
Ava’s life is full of great things. Her daughter is getting married to just the right guy, her husband’s company has kept them financially thriving for years, her son is a freshman in high school, playing football and doing well, and the ministry she started is keeping her busy as she reaches out to those with “broken hearts.”
Then it all falls apart. Ava’s safe world becomes unanchored, and she is forced to face the childhood she’s run away from her entire life. Just as she’s trying to sift through the pieces, the doorbell rings and Ava is confronted with the surprise of her life.

I have read Sheila's other two books Angel Song and Sweet Sanctuary and loved them both so no doubt I was going to love Song of the Brokenhearted. She is such a women after Gods own heart. Sheila is a very talented author she pulls you in from page one and, you will not want to put the book down until the very last page. I loved this story so much. It is a story about life and how sometimes it is very hard, but in the end God works it all out for the best. I loved it and give it 4 stars. I can't wait to see what Sheila has in store for us next.
