Book Review

I just finished reading a novel called Higher Hope. It is the second book in the series called A Tides of Truth by Robert Whitlow. The series is about a young woman, Tami Taylor, who is studying to become a lawyer. She desires to live for the Lord, while surrounded by the harsh and worldly aspects of the legal world.

In the book, Higher Hope, Tami is working as a law clerk for the summer in a Savannah law firm. Tami stands apart from the other clerks because she stands up for herself and her beliefs. Therefore, her boss assigns her to a case that involves a preacher who is accused of slandering the owner of a development company.

When I first received this book I didn't think I would enjoy reading it. I normally don't read books that have legal plotlines. As a matter of fact this was my first one! As I read the first couple of chapters, I started to wonder if it would be a pain to try to finish the book. There was one character in particular that had what I view as fanatical religious ideas and characteristics. However, I didn't want to give up on the book and I continued on. I'm glad I did! I really enjoyed Whitlow's writing style. Plus, it had just enough romance in it to keep my interest piqued. It soon became hard for me to put the book down. I didn't agree with some of the character's convictions, but that made the book all the more interesting for me. I would definitley enjoy reading the rest of the books in this series.
