“Far as the Curse Is Found” by Amanda Barratt
One winter night, a woman struggling to provide for her illegitimate child encounters a scarred veteran of the Napoleonic Wars on the streets of London. Can love conquer the darkness of two broken pasts?
I asked the author…
What is one of your favorite quotes from Far as the Curse Is Found & why do you love it?
My heroine, Jenny, speaks these words after my hero asks her how she can still believe in God’s goodness despite the pain and loss she’s experienced. All of us go through seasons of asking “Why?” and wrestling with God’s goodness in the midst of our deepest griefs. Suffering knocks on the door of every heart in this life, and with it come questions that seem to have no answers. But when we look beyond our circumstances and to the character of God, we see a Savior who reaches down into our pain and sustains us through it. Not simply a God who promises an easy life, but one who promises to be Immanuel–God with us. With us in the heartache, with us in the questions, with us in the brokenness, holding and loving every last piece.
