This is the story of Trista Van Zandt who moves to Chestnut Grove after divorcing her husband. This is a fresh start for the family. She has her brother Ross and his wife Kelly for support and help with her baby. She picks up work as a paralegal at a law firm in town. Her brother Ross is a private investigator and also runs the adoption agency called Tiny Blessings. He runs the business with his wife Kelly who is expecting their first child. While Trista has all this support she doesn't have any friends for support and seeks solace in the kingdom room. A chat room developed by the minister's wife in town.
Then there is Scott Crosby
the Assistant Pastor of Chestnut Grove church. He has a heart to serve the
people of Chestnut Grove. He is nursing a broken heart from breaking up with
his last girlfriend. Scott doesn't believe a woman can accept him for being a
pastor. Naomi the Pastor's wife unknowingly signs Pastor Scott up for the
kingdom room. Scott sees the e-mails and decides to participate in the kingdom
room. He tentatively joins and finds there are other ways to minister to the
people of Chestnut Grove. He might meet someone special in the kingdom room.
Perception is the focus of
the book. We never know who we might meet. Sometimes how our words and actions
affect other people. Terri Reed wrote some very interesting characters. I would
also suggest checking out future installments of the Tiny Blessing series.
