Pepper Basham's The Thorn Bearer

The Thorn Bearer is an engrossing story of brokenness and G-d's restorative powers. Pepper Basham has written a story that begins with 2 broken people, Ashleigh and Sam. Sam is engaged to Ashleigh's sister Catherine. Ashleigh is going to England to nurse the wounded soldiers and try to get over a broken engagement. Both Ashleigh and Sam are broken people and are traveling together on the Lusitania so that Sam can join Catherine and Ashleigh will join the staff of a private hospital and start an orphanage.

Pepper Basham has done a wonderful job of creating realistic characters that one could envision themselves sitting down to chat with. I,at times, found myself so caught up in the story that I would jump when the telephone rang or realize with surprise that time had passed and I needed to put my book down and attend to my chores. I love when a book draws me into the story and lets me feel what the characters feel. The Thorn Bearer is such a book. There are themes of brokenness and betrayal, loyalty and devotion. The greatest theme of all is forgiveness that G-d freely offers if only we ask. Pepper has woven all of these themes into a touching and engrossing tale that will leave you longing for more.

I received this novel from the author in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
