Katherine Blessan’s debut novel, Lydia’s Song is obviously a work of passion for the author. The difficult subject of child sex-trafficking is combined with the message of God’s grace and healing power. Told from the perspectives of a British ex-pat and a Vietnamese girl living in Cambodia, this novel is not an easy or gentle read. The trauma is real, the emotions are raw, and the truth is not sugar-coated. Blessan is a British novelist, so some of the language and scenes are not those typically seen in American Christian fiction. The writing is a bit uneven, and I would have liked more in the way of character development and more showing rather than telling. But it is easy to see the author’s heart in every page.

Audience: adults.
