Keys, Portraits of Trials and Truth by James Lloyd is a collection of three short stories in which you will discover that as long as you have faith in God, everything will be all right. The first story called “Waiting” is about a young man named Paul. There was a time when he was a very patient and careful man, but things changed when he lost his will to be good. But God has his ways to send help when you least expect it and Paul is in for a big surprise. In “Will to Soar,” Will Saxby is fighting with self-doubt. He does not believe he is good enough for the best things in his life, even if the people around him tell him how amazing he is. His opinion will change when he realizes that his life is so much better than the less fortunate. “Inside the Orchard” is the story of Edith, an overachiever who is obsessed with her law school professor. But when she sees the world from the eyes of someone else, she is in for an awakening that will make her realize how superficial her life was.
Keys, Portraits of Trials and Truth by James Lloyd is filled with some truly beautiful stories about how your faith in God can be tested and awoken if you take a chance. I enjoyed how James Lloyd creates ordinary yet such unique characters. You can find traces of yourself in Edith, Paul, and Will. The three of them are incredible people, yet they have flaws that make them vulnerable just like you and me. The narrative is so hopeful even when these people are going through a hard time. The writing style is simple, but it is powerful. You will feel every word inside your heart. The heart-warming messages inside these stories will give you hope and make you feel a little better about yourself.
