Review of Michelle Sutton’s Decision to Love


*Michelle Sutton is the inspirational author of over a dozen novels, a member of ACFW, an avid blogger and book reviewer, the mother of two college students, a wife of over two decades, and a follower of Jesus Christ. She resides with her family in Arizona.
*Love is a decision, or is it merely an emotion?
Eight years after Tony and Hope’s affair ended, new problems arise. Jimmy has gone off to college, but returns home with a startling revelation that devastates his father and causes his final heart attack. Now Hope is grieving the loss of both her husband and their son. She tries to make sense of everything, and in the end she decides to love her son through the grief. More than that, she makes the decision to love whoever her son chooses to love, whether she agrees with his choices or not.
Tony’s life has its own disaster tearing through it. First, he is accused of killing his ex-wife, but he is soon released once the authorities realize he had nothing to do with it. The tragedy with his ex led to some major changes in his life, however, and some soul-searching that ultimately turns Tony’s life around. While he is still adjusting to his new perspective on life, his long-lost daughter Nina contacts him and has some secrets of her own. He is overjoyed to be reunited with his daughter, but with their relationship comes an entirely new set of challenges.
Jimmy is confused about his faith, his life, and ultimately, whom he should love. After some severe trials knock him off what he thought was the right course for his life, he makes the decision to love himself enough not to be used by someone again. But will his decision protect him in the end?
All I can say is WOW.  This novel was great.  I’ve haven’t read any books by Michelle Sutton before, but I probably will now.  This book may not be for everyone because of the issues that it covers, but these are issues that some Christians face everyday.  It really makes you think what you would do if you were in this type of situation.  I applaud Michelle for covering these topics, as in today’s world this happens a lot.  But GOD still prevails and if you don’t believe in the power of prayer after reading this book, you never will.
