by Helen Murray
Sadie has heard the voice of God her entire life. But she has never answered back. After all, why her? As her parents’ marriage crumbles, and her own love interest takes off, Sadie’s life takes a comical turn toward the absurd. And in the midst of it all she must come to terms with her own worth and whether or not it’s time to let in the voice.
CAN THE VOICE WITHIN OUTSHINE THE NOISE?
