I recently borrowed the book Timepiece by Richard Paul Evans from one of my siblings. It's a love story that proclaims hope in the midst of tragedy and calamity. The story brings together a wealthy business man and a woman of unfortunate circumstances. It is almost a fairy tale account of love and happiness until the messiness and sometimes harshness of life sets in. The book is most captivating at the beginning and the end. By the end of the book one begins to see the life-giving value and hope that exercising forgiveness can bring versus the downward spiral of keeping grudges and exercising revenge whether humanly justifiable or not.
And here's a couple more pictures of beauty and hope.
