This is the second book by June Foster I’ve read, and I have to say that although I liked A Hometown Fourth of July, this one is even better. June’s writing was already solid and excellent, but it’s gotten even better.

In As We Forgive, Tim Garrett is a youth pastor at Bellewood Fellowship Church, until he can realize his dream of becoming a pastoral counselor. But the senior high youth in his charge give him a rough time. Why? Because Tim has a reputation for struggling with anger issues in the past. Although he’s seemingly gotten his problem under control, some people won’t let him forget it.

Roxanne Ratner was abandoned by her father when she was a little girl, and now she doesn’t trust men. To compensate for what’s missing in her life, she has become a shopaholic. But when she meets Tim, she feels like she’s finally met a man she can trust—until she finds herself on the receiving end of one of his tantrums.

Can Tim overcome his anger issues for good? Will Roxanne be able to control her impulsive shopping? Will they turn to the only One who can help them before both their hearts are broken again?

June Foster has done a wonderful job of creating 3-D characters that immediately make the reader care about them from page one. The circumstances of the story are believable, as are the characters. I especially liked the unexpected twist toward the end. Never saw it coming, but it fit fabulously into the story line, and helped create more tension. If you like romance with a bit of raw reality, you’ll surely enjoy As We Forgive.
