Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In the 1880s frontier town of Denver, Colorado, Danny, a kind policeman, and his wife, Callie, offer help to the beautiful prostitute Sabrina. With warmth and empathy, Jill Shellabarger depicts Sabrina's acceptance, which gives her hope and a new life in Christ. Shellabarger's optimistic characterization of Sabrina as she begins a new life contrasts sharply with her later fear of exposure when she travels to the Montana Territories. Shellabarger powerfully portrays Sabrina's compulsion to turn around the lives of the young women who are practicing prostitution there. With careful pacing Shellabarger also portrays Sabrina's growing interest in the town's pastor. Shellabarger gives a polished performance as the author explores themes of forgiveness and new beginnings."

    Very Enjoyable

    Lori Wick has written many great books and Sabrina is no different. The book has a really good message about love and forgiveness that can help many readers get through their current and future struggles. The characters are very genuine and the storyline is realistic. This book can do a lot of good for a person's heart.

    Sabrina by Lori Wick

    Sabrina Matthews does not know how to respond when she is taken from where she lives as a prostitute and offered a new life of hope. She takes a risk and chooses help, but finds that her old life keeps catching up with her. She moves to Token Creek, Montana, where she finds confirmation of her new spiritual life. She is blessed by quickly obtaining a job and a place to stay. Yet, a restlessness remains. She longs to help women like her who have been involved in prostitution and desire a new life. When a young, attractive preacher tries to reach out to these women as well, Sabrina finds herself deeply attracted, but still convinced that this man could never accept a person with her past.

    This is a classic story of "every saint has a past and every sinner has a future." I liked the book well enough, but I just did not think it was as well written as some of the other books Lori Wick has produced. Also, I am a bit biased because I've read Francine River's Redeeming Love which is also about a woman coming out of prostitution and I think that will forever be one of my favorite books.

    Learning the value of Forgiveness

    Forgiving oneself of their past sins is a difficult issue no matter what it is that you are guilty of. The story of a prostitute coming to Christ has been told. It was told in the Bible, it was told by Francine Rivers, it was told by Tamera Alexander, and now I've read it again from Lori Wick. But that is not saying oh, read it move on. Definitely not. The fact of hearing over and over again that no matter how bad you think your past actions have been, God loves you is incredible. The story of Sabrina is a wonderful one that did a great deal of good for my heart to read. I was less impressed with Cassidy (book #1), but Sabrina could very easily be read as a stand alone. Once upon a time, I had told a friend that I just could not forgive myself for something, even though I knew that Christ had forgiven me, his response was, so basically you're saying God's forgiveness is not enough? It was a shocking moment, and this book is equally as powerful to learning a little more about myself as well as enjoying a great story with romance, life lessons in scripture, with a little western action mixed in as well. I recommend it
