Publisher's Summary

After separating herself from the oppressive cult where she was raised, Mackenzie Soeurs has two dreams: to give her son Riley a better life than she had, and to live in peace, as far from the harsh God of her past as she can get. At least that was the plan until her son got hauled to jail for theft and she lost the mother she never truly understood. In the darkest moments of her life, Mac finds herself surrounded by a group of Christian women she can't understand and a handsome man willing to take her son under his wing.
Dane Cooper, Garfield's former bad boy and groom left at the altar, can't deny his initial attraction to Mackenzie. Neither can he resist the urge from God to mentor her delinquent son. How can he guard his battered heart and still give Riley the same second chance he was given?
When Jesse, Charley, Randy, and Alex signed up for Mac's first fitness class, they were looking for someone to whip them into physical shape. What they found was a woman bound by a cruel history, suffering through a tragic present, and in desperate need of a friend...or four.

Enjoyable

I loved listening to this book and learning all that Mac had to go through and how she learned to trust. She had really been through a lot and when those around her needed to help her out with all that came at her, she had to choose what what needed and not necessarily what she felt comfortable with. I really loved seeing how she grew as a person.

Wonderful start to a new series!

Having read five of Sharon Srock's Christian fiction novels, I was thrilled when the author offered me a chance to review the audio book of Mac. I really enjoyed this story! Mac, recently widowed, grew up in a cult community, where she learned a false version of the Christian faith, and now she finds herself surrounded by true Christian women. They help her deal with some serious issues she's encountered. Dane, a former bad boy, comes to her aid when her son needs male guidance. Mac finds herself attracted to Dane, who is a strong Christian.

I've not read a story like this before, where the character has left a cult and is trying to understand true Christianity. It opened my eyes to the reality of false teachings and the sad fact people are misguided, unbeknownst to them. The women in this story are wonderful examples, who take Mac into their circle, rather than judge her. Mac's journey to faith is full of hope and promise. The sparks between her and Dane made my heart skip a beat! Ms. Srock doesn't leave out humor, either, in spite of the serious subject matter.

If you like Christian women's fiction series, check out Sharon Srock's series! I promise you'll get attached to these women!

The Audible version was a great way to read Mac. The narrator was clear and easy to understand, and she distinguished one character's voice from another's. I also enjoyed the different accents, which adds so much to the character's personality.
