Book Review - REDEMPTION IN BIG FORK LAKE by Mary L. Ball
This book is the second in a series. In the first, Robert Turner is the villain. In this one, he has the chance to straighten up his act.
Robert is an alcoholic. Worse, he's a mean alcoholic. A woman he'd been dating refused to go out with him any more because he drank too heavy and she didn't want to put up with him any longer. Then one evening he finds her door unlocked, and he goes into her apartment intending to change her mind. When he kisses her, she pulls away violently, and her blouse gets torn. She hits him with something heavy and knocks him out.
Maybe it was the events of that night or maybe the times he drank too much afterward that made Robert know he had to quit drinking. He meets David from Alcoholics Anonymous who helps him turn his life around--stop drinking and get back together with God. Trouble is, his old friends keep coming around, trying to get him to come back to the old party scene.
He has to get out of town. David offers him a place to live in Montgomery, AL, and Roberts leaps at the chance. He's doubly pleased when he finds a job in his chosen profession as a reporter. Icing on the cake is when he meets the girl of his dreams--but it looks like his past is going to kill any hopes he has for a life with her.
Redemption in Big Fork Lake is available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
