Review and Giveaway: ‘Love and the Silver Lining’ by Tammy L. Gray

About The Book

This disaster may be just what she needed.

Darcy Malone’s dreams of mission work are dashed on the eve of fulfilling them: The Guatemalan school she was going to teach at has closed, and she’s already quit her job and given up her apartment. Stuck in her worst-case scenario, Darcy accepts an unexpected offer to move in with Bryson Katsaros’s little sister, despite the years of distrust between her and Bryson, the lead singer in her best friend Cameron’s band. But as she meets those close to Bryson, Darcy quickly discovers there is more to him than just his bad-boy persona.

Needing to find a purpose for all her sudden free time, Darcy jumps at the chance to care for and train a group of unruly dogs, with the aim of finding each a home before their bereaved owner returns them to animal control. But it’s Darcy herself who will encounter a surprising rescue in the form of love, forgiveness, and learning to let go.

When Darcy Malone’s dream of going on the mission field devastates her, she flounders around, wondering why God allowed this and what His will is for her now. It will take a bunch of dogs and learning to let go and let God for Darcy to learn what His will is for her. Along the way, she must listen for sometimes God doesn’t speak the way we want Him to.
Tammy Gray writes with depth here and this is one sure to please Christian fiction fans.
