INSIGHTFUL, BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN, INSPIRATIONAL -- Lyza's Story is the first installment in The Lane Trilogy (the others being "The Legacy: Book Two of The Lane Trilogy" and "Leesa's Story: Book Three of The Lane Trilogy"). The author deftly crafts the main characters with detail, depth, and believability, wrapped up as they initially are in a lush material world of power, possessions, and prestige -- yet with precious little in spiritual awareness or practice. Gradually Lyza becomes better acquainted with her Jewish heritage and a loving God, Who nurtures her with unfathomable Love through an unforeseeable crisis and awakens her faith, opening her eyes to the true treasures in life which cannot be measured in the summation of successful business deals, bling, or designer fashions. Further, the author leads Lyza gently through an exploration of how her faith intertwines inextricably with Christianity and begins to explore how the belief systems are more compatible than one might initially think. I eagerly look forward to reading what awaits Lyza and her family as the trilogy continues!

Author! Author! Great read and the development of each of the characters is succinct and believable. We all carry the same viruses of greed, selfishness, hatred, vanity and searching for fulfillment at any cost. Lyza (the main character in this first of a trilogy) is the proverbial work-a-holic who strives to outwork, outsmart, and outmaneuver the men whom she encounters in her business life. This spills over into her personal life and her distrust and arms-length attitude toward anything male drives her even harder. I'm hoping that in the second book she will have gotten to the point where she doesn't give a flip about what she wears, actually gets some dirt on her face, and, through the Lord's guidance, finds peace with a man of faith who teaches her how to forgive.
