Tried With Fire by Libby Lindblom
Released May 4, 2022
Torn from her loving home at a young age, Leah Carson was forced to grow up in the cold, cruel environment of her grandparents’ bakery in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia. What seems to outsiders like a delightfully sweet atmosphere is to Leah unending slavery for her money-driven grandpa, constant persecution for her Christian beliefs, and grinding days of stress and exhaustion in an atmosphere void of love. Added to Leah’s burdens are those ever-haunting memories of the tragedies of the past. Will she ever gain any ground in her struggle to be a bright light for Christ and win the hard-hearted atheists around her?
This stirring and suspenseful story will grip your heart, lift your faith, and challenge your commitment as you share in Leah’s tears, fears, and victories over her circumstances. A classic story of grit and grace, it will remind you that when life gets so tough you can hardly stand—kneel.
