Tessa By Melissa Wiltrout GIVEAWAY!

Is there no way out?
Tessa loathes being forced to work in her father’s illegal drug business. Yet her ill-fated attempts at running away only deepen the abuse. Guilt and shame press in, pushing away her real friends and reinforcing her own criminal tendencies.

Tessa yearns for freedom – and something else. Then a neighbor introduces her to God and salvation through Christ. But will faith be enough? Can she overcome the forces that bind her before it’s too late?

Melissa Wiltrout lives in Wisconsin with her two dogs, a 15-year-old Sheltie named Chester and an energetic young terrier named Daisy. She began writing her first novel (it was a dud) at the age of eight. Now in her thirties, she keeps busy at the family nursery and landscaping business during the summer and spends her winters writing. Having experienced much struggle in her own life, it is her prayer that others will find hope and encouragement through her writing.

This is a really good book for young adults.
 Author Wlitrout has written a heartwarming,very touching story of hope.
I was very surprised that the story just flowed so well. The characters were very well developed.
This book shows that God is for us. Gods love pours from the pages.
A book that young adults will surely be touched by, and won't forget for a long time.
I gave this book 4 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
