Embracing Change is an inspirational story of personal challenge. When Sarah Johnson's fiancé is killed by a hijacker in South Africa, Sarah carries out his wish to continue with their plan and moves to New Zealand, taking his ashes to scatter there. In her grief she hasn't counted on her gradual healing coming from two unexpected sources: Jesus Christ, and His new plan for her: Joel Baxter. But will Joel's old flame, Mandy, succeed in destroying Sarah's fragile progress in both her spiritual and earthly paths? And will she ever break free of the oppressive power still held over her by the hijacker who murdered her fiancé and attacked her, too? It takes a journey halfway back across the world for Sarah to face her demons, and finally forgive. Embracing Change won the Rose & Crown New Novels competition 2009.

I enjoyed this book very much. It's not my usual read, but the storyline is one that resonates with me, having lived in Johannesburg for so many years. I loved the descriptions of New Zealand and also of my home city, Jo'burg. I still miss the dust, heat and mine dumps and Debbie Roome's evocative writing brought it all back! For me, the last chapters were particularly relevant and meaningful, but of course I don't want to add any spoilers. For those who love Christian romance stories, you probably won't find one better than this!
