Summary

In the four years since her husband’s death, Melanie LaSalle’s life has been consumed with managing the family design firm and caring for her five-year-old daughter, Jerica. The possibility of a new relationship is the last thing on her mind. But when Melanie meets Joel Ellington, a new staff member at her church, she is instantly attracted to his warm spirit.

As their friendship deepens, however, Melanie is troubled by something she can’t quite understand or explain. Joel’s past seems to be off-limits, even to Melanie. Because of her growing feelings for him, Melanie pushes her doubts away. But when Joel disappears, along with the contents of a church bank account, she can no longer ignore her suspicions.

Now, torn between her feelings for Joel and the evidence mounting against him, Melanie faces a heart-wrenching decision: to forget the man who gave her reason to love again or to trust Joel enough to give him her heart.

Exploring themes of the importance of truth, loyalty, and trust, A Scarlet Cord illustrates that who we truly are depends little on outward appearances and solely on our relationship with God and on the fact that through faith in him, we can find places of comfort, healing, and selfless love.

Lovely story

All I can say is that it was so refreshing to
listen to a story with no swearing in it

Great story

Loved this story. Was a bit slow in getting into the meat of things but the nice it did, I found it hard to put down. Wanted a bit more for the ending but that’s just me ….
