The Garden Path (Paperback)
Whit Eden has come full circle: growing up in a world of gangs and violence, he found redemption in the gospel—and in the love of a good woman. But in a devastating turn of events, Whit’s world was rocked when he was falsely accused of murdering his father-in-law. Though he was innocent, it seemed as if all hope was lost . . . For Whit and Mary Eden, the path toward happily ever after has been strewn with opposition. But now, with a verdict of “not guilty,” it seems as if they’ll finally have a reprieve from the troubles that have beset them. Their joy is made complete with the stunning news that Mary is expecting their first child together, a sibling for their adopted daughter. Yet, even as the young family finds its footing, things begin to crumble for those around them. As they reach out to the struggling families, Whit and Mary must rely on one another more than ever as they embark on a journey of selfless love and second chances.

This is the first book I have ever read by Anita Stansfield and I am really impressed! Written about real-life situations and reliance on the Lord, I felt immediately pulled into the story and wanted to keep reading to find out how it all comes together. I LOVED how the characters kept looking for the blessings brought to them through their trials instead of wallowing in the trials themselves....need to learn from that myself! I also loved how one person can turn their life around and receive all of the blessings awaiting them. SO GOOD! A definite MUST READ!
