Leah’s Way is a fictional story that vividly displays our human weaknesses, yet fully encompasses God’s mercy. Mr. Botelho allows us a glimpse of ourselves and our false sense of spirituality while weaving the threads of forgiveness, redemption, and love throughout. Leah’s Way reminds me of a modern picture of The Prodigal Son or Leah’s striving for the love of Jacob in the Bible. It is the written picture of our need for purpose and acceptance. It is the account of an unfailing God.
Mr. Botelho has a remarkable style, which immediately draws the reader into his book. Leah’s Way reads as softly and smoothly as any classic romance, yet has the spiritual depth of a well-planned sermon without being preachy. If you are in the mood for a purposeful, but fictional, work that is also a stimulating and thoughtful read, pick up a copy of Leah’s Way. It will touch your spirit.
