The secrets that define us are often evident to everyone but ourselves.
Cass Parker and Caroline McKay carry more baggage between the two of them than a Greyhound bus.
Cass, abandoned by her father as a child, finds herself alone and pregnant at thirty-five. Her world turns upside-down when the police deliver a backpack belonging to her father; what she finds shakes the foundation of everything she believed to be true.
Caroline is unable to outrun the scars of an abusive past; bent on self-destruction, she is determined to take Cass down with her.
Cass and Caroline are on a collision course with hope and with each other. Both think they have God figured out until they meet Him in ways that challenge everything they believed to be true. Both women are offered a chance for redemption and forgiveness—but will they take it?
In He Knows Your Name, Debbie Giese takes a courageous look at the issues that defined many of us growing up and redefines them in the light of Truth. She writes with a rare blend of humility, humor, and transparency.

He Knows Your Name By Debbie Giese Hope Speaks Series Book 1 Cassandra Parker is like a lost little girl. Her father had left when she was young and her mom wasn't quite the motherly type. And now she has been dumped by a man she thought might want her. She has always been taught that God didn't want people like her, so she's not sure how to act when a co-worker invites her to a church activity. Cass soon learns she was wrong about a great number of things. This book is mostly written around Cass and her life issues, but other characters are pulled in around her as well. She works with three women; Lauren the pastors wife, Shelby who is a younger woman who struggles with gossip and Caroline. Caroline has her own book of issues that she's been dragging around and Cass becomes her target for everything that has gone wrong in her life. If you get emotional while reading...definitely keep a box of tissues nearby for this one. Cass goes through many situations as do some of the others. The author has created lifelike characters that pull you, and your emotions, right into the story with them. There are some tough life issues they work through. I like the way that one thing that happens could devastate Cass and instead she uses it as a lifesaver, something to finally ground her. The issues also open a door for Lauren to show her new friend God's love. Looking forward to the next two books that will be coming in this series.
