I was given a copy of The Sinner’s Garden for review from Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for an honest blog review. That in no way shaped my opinion of this book.
Meet William Sirls: Once a senior vice president in a large investment firm, he was incarcerated in 2007 for wire fraud and money laundering. Life lessons involving faith, grace, and forgiveness are evident in his writing. The Sinners’ Garden is definitely a great example of that. I got immediately wrapped up in this book within the first couple of pages. There is plenty of things in this book that are open to interpretation, but there are equally as many things that are realistic.
The main character Andy is a troubled teenager for valid reason due to something his father did when he was young. Yet, his father lied to him and made him believe it was his mother who did it. So, he grows up resenting his mother. His Uncle becomes his mentor after serving time in jail and giving his life over to God. Andy’s uncle works diligently to get Andy to have a relationship with God.
There is plenty of healing throughout the book. There are things that very well may not ever happen in the book, but it’s still a neat concept. Of course, that’s why I take it as a fictional novel. However, there is more than enough realistic aspects to the book that make a wonderful read.
We all fall short of the glory of God. We are all sinner’s. I feel that this book is a great read for anyone who loves to read Christian fiction stories. There are 69 other people who have also enjoyed reading this book judging from the reviews on Amazon.
