Overview

Come with Tess Longren on a gripping journey of self-discovery that will finally explain the painful secrets that have torn her family apart.

Tess Longren is 28, single, and at a crossroads in her life. She finally has a job she enjoys as well as a proposal of marriage from a man she loves, but Tess can't seem to grasp a future filled with promise and hope. Her mother's long ago death remains a constant, though subtle ache that refuses to let go of Tess -- or her emotionally distant father. When childhood friend, Blair Holbrook, asks Tess to accompany her to their childhood home to resolve a situation left unsettled fifteen years ago, Tess falsely imagines that by helping her friend find peace, she will find contentment for herself.

When I started reading the story, the characterization of Tess intrigued me. She was living with a man and not married to him. I thought, 'Wonder how the author pulled that off...' in regards to taboo subjects. My conclusion? The author did a wonderful job. The heroine was away from the hero, though still in communication with him, throughout the story as she traveled to find herself and remedy her regret. I was thoroughly impressed with how the author dealt with numerous issues. Abandonment, guilt, self-blame, shame, step-families, unspoken accusation, supportive friendship and unconditional love that led the heroine to a saving knowledge of Jesus and faith in God. The Christians in the story ministered to Tess in a way she could understand. They tuned into her need, spoke when the timing was right, confronted situations as appropriate, and loved her without expectations. I was also impressed with the realism in the story. Pain doesn't heal in an instant. People don't always accept our offer of forgiveness. Time doesn't always heal all wounds. Absolutely beautifully written. This is a novel that has made my life richer. From this point forward Susan Meissner is an author I'm putting on my list of 'must-reads.' I highly recommend The Remedy for Regret.
