What Readers Are Saying: "Arizona Redemption is another reading pleasure from SQ Eads. The author brings readers into a town that she personally knows well and through generous use of vivid details makes them feel right at home. The reader can't help but want this comfortable setting to be a safe and permanent home for the main character and her family, through all the challenges they face. The illustrations of the old mining town of Bisbee are great additions as well."
"SQ Eads has written her best one yet! I sat down with this one expecting another fun adventure and a look into the lives of real people facing real challenges, but I got even more than I expected. I saw a young woman facing the difficult consequences of her past while struggling with the desire to handle all her problems on her own. Sound familiar to anyone? This is a very real character whose life is turned around when she comes to the end of herself and lets the love of God begin to heal her heart. This book is about how anyone can begin to rewrite the story of his or her life when they let the Author and Creator of life redeem it. I learned things right along with the main character, as if I were she, experiencing things for the very first time. I laughed. I cried. I couldn't put it down! If the reality of your life is not what you had hoped for, sit down and read this book to find out how God can redeem anything!"

Victoria (Tori) Stilman is the main character in this book. She is carrying a lot of baggage from her life in San Diego to a town called, Bisbee, Arizona. Here she meets Lance Manning, co-owner with his twin brother Logan, of M&M Construction. SQ Eads does an excellent job bringing this story to life. I liked that this book had good Christian values. I thought it was neat that SQ Eads included her Father Chuck Eads in this book. (He was for real at one time the Mayor of Bisbee, Arizona). The sketches that SQ Eads included in this book were awesome. Thank you SQ Eads for using your talent to Glorify our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Arizona Redemption by SQ Eads Victoria Stilman has become a runner and not as an athlete. When problems arise she takes her two sisters and hits the road. After a big problem in San Diego, she piles her sisters in a new yellow SUV and heads out. Their next stop is Bisbee, Arizona. And just in time to show her skills at driving heavy equipment and to get a job. Her sister Bonnie has a new faith that would say God is blessing them, Tori only depends on herself. Lance Manning feels a connection to his new employee from the moment he meets her. He’s had some deep sadness in the past years but the Lord has pulled him through. Will He bring this newcomer to believe in Him, so that Lance can pursue her? Or will he have to tell his heart to let go? A unique story of three girls who never knew the love of family and come to a community opposite of what they know. A place where people help their neighbors and families enjoy each other. Tori just can’t let go and trust others to help with her burdens. Not to God or man. The author has characters that come alive and grab the readers emotions. Situations that slowly come to light and a few surprises along the way.
