This novel by Michelle Sutton covers another couple tough issues, as her books are known to do. And it’s every bit as good as her others.

In Letting Go, Diane Simmons is a lawyer known for her aggressiveness in the courtroom. But her personal life is a mess. After a bad relationship with a man she hadn’t known was married, and a medical procedure that renders her unable to conceive, Diane vows not to get involved with a man again. Then Dave Passel hires her for the custody of his adopted son, Joey. The case manager and Joey’s natural mother are giving him trouble, and he needs help fast. But both Diane and Dave get more than they bargained for when a mutual attraction develops. Dave is reluctant to get involved, because of circumstances he faced with his now deceased wife, and because Diane isn’t a Christian. Diane can’t bring herself to foster a relationship, because she harbors some deep, dark secrets that go back to her childhood. Can these two souls let go of past situations they’ve lived through in order to find genuine love? Will God intervene?

As a social worker, Michelle Sutton is equipped to create believable scenarios and to use the tools she provides to her real-life clients to present ways these problems can be solved. The attractiveness of the hero and heroine is a key part of the story, and doesn’t detract from their authenticity. I particularly liked how the main characters extended the love of Christ to an adversary in the final act, which helped to bring the story to a satisfying conclusion. If you like novels that cover real-life, tough issues, Letting Go is for you.
