Summary

Forgive and divorce are both translated into English from the same Greek word in the New Testament. When marriage is talked about as tying the knot, divorce becomes the process of untying that knot.
 
Could forgiveness be better illustrated through the separation and liberation that occurs when a knot is untangled?
 
Can lamenting help us name the layers of disloyalty, betrayal, or abuse that hold us captive?
 
Viewed in this fresh way, Steve Hall shows how God wants to partner with us to heal our painful memories of mistreatment through a cycle of lamenting and forgiving.

    Jennings Offers Another Delightful Blend of History and RomanceBetsy Huckabee might be a small-town girl, but she has big-city dreams. Writing for her uncle's newspaper will never lead to independence, and the bigger newspapers don't seem interested in the Hart County news. Trying a new approach, Betsy pens a romanticized serial for the ladies' pages, and the new deputy provides the perfect inspiration for her submissions. She'd be horrified if he read her breathless descriptions of him, but these articles are for a newspaper far away. No one in Pine Gap will ever know. Deputy Joel Puckett didn't want to leave Texas, but this job in tiny Pine Gap is his only shot at keeping his badge. With masked marauders riding every night, his skills and patience are tested, but even more challenging is the sassy journalist lady chasing him.
