Hounded by Anita Klumpers is an interesting love story relating to both the physical and spiritual. Elise Amberson is a widow, for the second time, before the age of thirty. This time there are some questions about her husband's death. Is she involved or is she in danger? The entire Amberson family either suspect her or could be potential suspects themselves. At Timothy Amberson's funeral, Elise is reunited with a friend from the past, Pastor Russell Martinez. Russ becomes the only one that Elise feels she can trust, and she fears that it could be even more than that. She has buried two husbands and she is not looking for a relationship, not with man or with God.
Anita Klumpers' characters are well defined and have the realism necessary to make them believable. Elise Amberson has buried two husbands, one she truly loved, Christopher, and the other, Timothy, who provided security for her. When Christopher died, Elise's faith in God died too and now, as she tries to flee the God that she so desperately needs, Pastor Russ is complicating things, spiritually and emotionally. Anita Klumpers weaves an interesting love story, full of twists and turns that keep you wondering who Elise can really trust. This is a well written and enjoyable story that shows us just how important we are to God and how persistent He is about having a relationship with us because of His love for us. I loved this book.
