From orphan to superstar... Singer-songwriter Briana Bays rose from obscurity to the center spotlight. She had everything... fame, talent, beauty, and one of the most successful music careers in history. The world was her stage, but the screaming adulation of her fans could not fill the hole in her heart. Her past was shrouded in shadows, some of her own making, and some of which she was trying desperately to pierce. No amount of success could bring her the one thing she needed most... forgiveness...
In her late teens, Brianna Bays is an international singing sensation with everything she could possibly want, but fame and fortune feel hollow compared to the longing inside her tired heart. She's lost and alone in her luxury, and seeks to fill the emptiness. In her quest for answers, she comes to realize the importance of forgiveness.
J. L. Rothdiener's novel, A Quest for Forgiveness fully embraces the Christian faith from page one, witnessing and advocating redemption, religion, and salvation in the Lord. It stresses the importance of forgiving to be forgiven, coming to terms with one's past sins, and accepting the Lord's message into one's life.
Rothdiener successfully tells a tale of a family torn apart by fear, distrust, jealousy and deceit and one girl's search for truth and forgiveness on her path to accepting Christianity as the one true religion.
Devout Christians are sure to find this novel inspiring, appealing, and appropriate for all ages.
