Lydia Blankenship and her husband, Jim, lost their own little girl years ago to a medical mishap. It took Lydia nearly thirty years to stop hating the nurse who administered the wrong medicine. Now, she and Jim are once again in parental bliss as the legal guardians for Lydia’s charming five-year-old grandniece, Gracie. The girl’s mother, however—recently released from prison for drug-related theft—plots to kidnap the little girl and run.
Lydia’s happy days with her grandniece are quickly threatened, along with her tranquil marriage. The law is on Lydia’s side, but her niece, Nicole, has years of experience sidestepping the law. When Lydia turns to her friends to help thwart her niece, they support her crazy antics. When she turns to God, she doesn’t like the answers.
Is Lydia a match for a conspiring ex-con? Is a conspiring ex-con a match for Lydia? Deliverance is a story of scheming, intrigue, and overcoming fear. Most of all it is a love story and the third book in the Hope & Healing Series.
