Merisela, a young woman from a small village in the Yucatan Peninsula, is finding life intolerable in her stepfather’s home. When the danger continues to escalate, she’s finally forced to flee. Soon she finds herself alone and afraid in a country that’s completely unfamiliar to her. Meanwhile in Toronto, Michael, the son of a struggling single mother, feels lost and directionless. Then something terrible happens that threatens to derail him for life.
Both Merisela and Michael believed in God as children. But now, they wonder if God is still there. And if so, why does He let bad things happen to good people? As Mike and Merisela battle daunting odds to find their places in the world, their paths cross, and eventually their separate quests for answers lead them to the same Person.
A vibrant, emotionally engaging, contemporary Christian romance, Seventy Times Seven is a book about forgiveness, courage, survival and love—the love between a man and a woman, the love of family, and the faithful love of God, the source of all love, for His children.
