Worth A Thousand Words
From Essence Bestselling Fiction Author:
A captivating story detailing a woman’s journey of faith when faced with questions about what her future holds. Worth a Thousand Words is the second book in Stacy Hawkins Adams’ Jubilant Soul series. In this novel, readers will follow young Indigo Burns of Jubilant, Texas as she searches wrestles with the desires of her heart and all that tomorrow may hold.
Indigo’s life is going according to plan. She possesses the ambition and talent to be a professional photographer, and she thanks God for all the blessings that surround her. Now, all at once, Indigo’s family life, love life, and hopes for success have flipped upside down. Indigo loves the Lord, but can she trust him to work his plan in her life?
Worth a Thousand Words dramatically explores the tough decisions one woman must make in the world of love, relationships, and career. Will Indigo find the courage to face her own truths—and accept those being harbored by the people she loves most? Either way, she risks losing everything she’s ever wanted.
It's hard to write a review for this book without giving away a major spoiler but suffice it to say that one of the reasons for Indigo and Brian's difficulties in making decisions regarding their relationship was unexpected. I've not personally known anyone having this issue so I can't say if it's realistic or not how the characters reacted.
While the book was a bit of a letdown due to the unexpected topic, I will be looking to read more of Adams' books. Overall I enjoyed the characters, the family relationships and the author's perspective on the compromises made when two individuals are heading toward becoming one couple.
