Bouncing around the foster care system, Sophia has a horrible life until at the age of eighteen; she flees her abusive “father.” Trying to survive on the streets, she is taken in by a pimp, Jax. While she makes enough money to rent a rundown apartment, Jax’s percentage leaves her struggling to pay her own way.
While treating herself to a cup of coffee, she meets Matt. The persistent young man asks her out, not realizing her circumstances. When Sophia reveals her past and shares with him her current life, Matt is undeterred.
A violent, life-changing encounter with Jax brings Matt to her rescue. He takes her to his parents’ guesthouse, where she is welcomed and given a job in his father’s church. The only stipulation is she must attend church with the family.
Blossoming in her new life, Sophia and Matt begin to explore their relationship.
However, someone is not pleased with the changes in her life. Threatening calls and messages are only the beginning of the danger to Sophia. Corruption, lies, and betrayal threaten the couple and when the truth is revealed, many lives are left in turmoil. Can faith and love overcome the devastation in Sophia’s life and lead to her redemption and the life she deserves?
Sophia Redeemed is a book about second chances, not just second chances in the “romance” department but second chances with oneself. Becoming new, becoming redeemed, becoming whole. This story proves that no matter what kind of life you’ve lived that God is always forgiving and loving. Sophia has had a rough beginning, a life most of us can’t begin to imagine. When she least expects it, He sends her a guardian angel in the form of preachers’ son, Matt. Watching Sophia grow in Christ as she is continually tested and tried is so magical. This book had everything. Suspense, Romance, Redemption, love, and it kept you on the edge of your seat.
