All Means All, If You Believe by Gwen Sutton is a story of faith, resilience and a mother's belief. BabyRuth was happy. She had a beautiful life, she had a son, Derek, who had a great promise of a better future, and a daughter who idolized her brother. But when Derek does something that not only shatters his future, but also shakes his family's lives, BabyRuth must keep her faith in God. Their once normal life is on a track that could end in destruction. Her golden boy is now tarnished. However, BabyRuth is a strong woman, and her belief in God is unshakable. She believes that everything is possible for Him. He can make things better and bring her family's happiness back. But when times are so bad and everything is working against you, can you keep your faith?
Sometimes, there are writers who put so much spirituality and religion into their stories that it loses its element of fiction and becomes more of a religious motivational book. Gwen Sutton did nothing of the sort. She kept the balance between spirituality and fiction. In this way, I was able to appreciate it more and enjoy the story too. I really liked the way she portrayed her characters and how she kept her chapters short. They were packed with information and very easy to read. All in all, it was a great novel that I will definitely read again because Sutton kept the mystery and action in the story until the very end.
