Title: A Future Spring
Author: Catherine DePasquale
High school teacher Ginny Dalton is hiding from life. When a violent incident breaks out at her school, she is suddenly face-to-face with police detective Scott James. Scott brings with him his own demons but perhaps a chance for a new beginning for them both. Can they find in one another the promise of A Future Spring?
A Future Spring is not my usual read, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The plot follows Ginny and Scott, a high school teacher and a detective, respectively, after a violent incident in the halls of Ginny’s high school. The events of the novel follow her recovery from the incident, their budding relationship, and the day to day lives of tragedy survivors. The plot moves along at a fair pace, though I was left wanting something more. A few times throughout the novel there was the potential for major conflicts, but most issues seemed to be resolved fairly quickly.
All in all, it was a pleasant read, and I’d recommend it to anyone who’s into Christianity-themed fiction.
