After her life goes up in flames, a young woman meets Jesus, who takes her on an enlightening journey that forever changes her life in the Christian romance novel Immanuel: God With Us, Saints, Sinners, and the Like by Gara Shaw. Johanna is a journalist and is preparing to be married in a month. Expecting a happy evening out with her fiancé, Johanna is stunned when he breaks up with her without giving her a reason. The following morning, Johanna's boss lets his reporters go, and she is now unemployed. Feeling that her life is over, Johanna takes a magic pill with alcohol. Instead of dying, Johanna has an up-close and personal encounter with Jesus. After she regains consciousness, Johanna begins having unique experiences that eventually lead her to church. Here the pastor teaches her unconditional love, forgiveness, and faith. As the days progress, Johann realizes she is in love with this handsome and charismatic man. Can she put her past behind her and trust that everything will turn out okay?
Immanuel: God With Us, Saints, Sinners, and the Like by Gara Shaw is a sensational Christian romance novel. The elements of personal loss, belief in Jesus, God's power, transformation, and unconditional love, are woven throughout the storyline, creating a motivating novel. Johanna's character is an inspiration, and it is fascinating to watch her faith mature and grow as she confronts and overcomes the conflicts in her life. I love how she reaches out to others, making a difference in everyone's life. I enjoyed every page of this delightful story, and I can't recommend it enough. Based on the belief in Jesus, His words, and the precepts of Christianity, this sensational story will inspire and charm Christian readers from young adults upward.
