Today I would like to introduce you to Emma Easter. My review is on "The Path to Destiny" book 2 in her Destiny series. First, a little about the author.
About Emma Easter
Like the characters in her stories, Emma Easter juggles a range of identities.
In the low-income community where she works, Easter is known as a family medicine physician who treats patients of all ages and backgrounds, including those who've been historically under-served by the healthcare system. But it's less known that she's also experienced life on the opposite end of the stethoscope as a cancer patient, now in remission.
College friends see her as an accomplished musician, having studied and mastered five classical instruments--but behind closed doors, she's just as comfortable rocking an air guitar to Creed. And when she isn't giving her heart, soul, and sanity to her three young children she's indulging in her most secret identity of all: meeting new characters, crafting fresh plots, and exploring every corner of her imagination.
Across all these different roles, one cohesive thread has tied everything together: her faith and love of Jesus Christ.
The Sisters of Rosefield is Easter's first series, soon to be followed by a second, The Destiny Series. Both center around themes close to Easter's heart: The importance of family, the redemption of true love, and the power of faith through harrowing adversity.
Emma Easter loves hearing from her readers.

Having Emily, escaping Fallow Creek, and discovering herself in Destiny led Rachel to Keith.

This book is an inspiration to following God’s word even when it seems impossible. To trust that if He calls, He will deliver and make a way for you to follow his plan.

In case you haven't read book 1 in the series.
