Watch Over Me is a riveting novel about a military veteran and his pacifist wife, each struggling with their faith and marriage when they suddenly find themselves caretakers for an abandoned newborn baby. The other major character is a deaf teenager with serious health issues who is living in a dysfunctional family. As the lives of these characters intertwine and each person attempts to wrestle with his problems on his own, their love for the baby draws them toward God and each other.
I found myself drawn into this story from the very first page. The story itself was compelling and unique and the characters were very real. I found myself relating equally to each of the major characters as the viewpoint of the novel changed from chapter to chapter. This is Christa Parrish’s second novel and was definitely a “hard to put down” read. I will definitely be looking for her first book and for any future releases!
I received this book free in exchange for my honest review from Bethany House Publishers.
