Georgia and Pierce first met at a church convention and they were immediately attracted to each other, they had each found their soul mate. As they spent time together, everyone thought they were the perfect couple, a couple who shared the love of God. That is until Pierce got into trouble and landed in juvenile detention. And not only that, Pierce’s dad decided to send Pierce away because he was hanging with the wrong crowd. But what about Georgia? Pierce was her boyfriend, and wouldn’t he at least want to see her before he left? Or return her phone calls? Find out in Lasting Love by Denese Shelton.

Even though Georgia and Pierce seemed to be a perfect couple, Pierce lived another life around his not so good friends, causing the couple to live separate lives for many years. I was thrilled when Georgia and Pierce just happened to be at the same place, twelve years later, and finally Georgia found the answers that had bothered her all these years. I was such a fan of Georgia and Pierce. I was hoping the two would take up where they left off, but each was older and more mature and a lot had happened in their lives. Even though there were many struggles, emotions, feelings, ex-friends, and other difficult situations, I enjoyed following the lives and love of Georgia and Pierce. This is truly a story of God’s love, mercy, grace, forgiveness and redemption, and author Denese Shelton does a really great job of weaving everything together in a wonderful, heartfelt story for her readers to enjoy. For those who love a great romance, you will love this love story.
