One reckless night. A lifetime of regret.

Corey Schaffer has spent her entire marriage privately repenting a horrible mistake made the week before her wedding. When her teenaged daughter is in car accident, Corey blames herself and aches to confess all to her husband.

Additionally, their son’s thoughtless rebellion has put her husband Paul’s pastoral position at risk, and he’s finding it hard to forgive. If he can’t forgive Michael how can he forgive her?

It all comes to a head when a disgruntled church member sees an opportunity for revenge.

Corey must dig deep to find the courage to help her family. Even if that means walking away.

A grabber from the beginning, this one is gut-wrenching, heart-hurting, faith-reaffirming and extraordinarily difficult to put down. Illusions is a finely crafted novel built around well-developed characters who behave and interact in all-too human ways. This author is a master of her craft and provides her readers with a memorable story that speaks volumes about human nature, the preciousness of forgiveness and the fragility of life. I highly recommend this one and am grateful it is one I can share with many. Enjoy!
