The Gift by Ta'Mara Hanscom - A Review

So glad you are back for a look at my favorite book - Book 4 of the Caselli Series with Ta'Mara Hanscom this week. 

They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; 
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.
 Isaiah 40:31

Guiseppi said, “The Lord gave me that verse when you were very small...I was so afraid to become a father again at the age of forty…the boys were big, nearly ready to leave home…I had raised my family…I was so afraid to start over…but one night, as I prayed for strength and wisdom, God led me to that verse and it is what has helped me through so many trying times, because, my Angel, we do hope in the Lord, and now your heart flies like an eagle. 

“And just as God comforted His exiled people, telling them that their tears had been enough, He comforts you now and dries your tears of despair — because you have hope in Him…Your tears have been enough, my Angel. Let us rejoice and move on.”

Available from Reata  or just $2.99 on Kindle or Barnes & Noble NookBook 


My Thoughts:
This series just gets better and better. As I mentioned above, This is probably my favorite book. Because it is about hope, reward for faithfulness to the Lord, joy that comes in the morning! It is hard to say much about this book without giving away the story. What I can say is that, after years of putting the pieces of her life back together, making things work, suffering in hope of a better tomorrow, Tillie's dreams are finally being fulfilled. God is finally redeeming it - to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; ... that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3. Tillie followed God's will even when her heart may have wanted to do otherwise, even when others encouraged her to chose her own, and God blesses her for it. His compassions fail not and his mercies are new every morning. 
I have to tell you, be sure you get the tissue box out! You're gonna need it. If I cried in any of the books, I cried in this one, (and probably the first one) the most. By now years have gone by and the story has come almost full circle - one more book to go!
