Charisse

By Fay Lamb

Description:

Charisse Wellman’s husband has been gone a year, and she’s about to lose the only home her son, V.J., has ever known. She’s quit law school but the money just isn’t there. Her only option is to work as a law clerk for her ex-friend, Gideon Tabor. The only problem: Gideon is the judge who let her husband’s killer go free, and Gideon doesn’t know the connection.

Gideon Tabor can’t believe that the woman interviewing for the job is the girl he loved in high school. Charisse is hesitant about accepting his job offer, and when she does, Gideon makes every attempt to apologize for his relationship-ending blunder in high school. Charisse accepts his apology, but she keeps him at a distance. When Gideon learns that Charisse’s anger actually stems from his release of the man who ran down her husband, he tries to explain, but Charisse doesn’t want Gideon’s excuses or the love he has to offer. She wants her husband’s killer to pay.

Book Takeaway:

Charisse is about grace...learning how to forgive if only because Christ first forgave you.

Why the author wrote this book:

The series: The Ties that Bind includes the lives of four different women who are brought together by their life circumstances. They each deal with issues such as grace, self-esteem, hope, and how being the real you to the world is better than putting on a face that doesn't fit the image of Christ.
