On the cusp of the stock market crash of 1929, seventeen-year-old Molly has aspirations for a career in music after high school. With the passion of an athlete preparing for the Olympics, she trains relentlessly to become the best she can be. As her world collapses in unimaginable ways, she is left to find peace and purpose in the midst of her crisis. The message of His Gift is universal to anyone who has ever dared to dream in spite of uncontrollable circumstances. The reader will discover with Molly, the hope and peace in a life when yielded to the Giver of all gifts.
IN MY OPINION
For anyone who has had a dream within reach die, His Gift by Joan C. Benson reminds us that despite our losses, God has a perfect plan.
Eighteen-year-old Molly lives and breathes music and is on the verge of realizing her dream of becoming a professional pianist. But America is on the verge of the Great Depression.
This coming of age story follows eighteen-year-old Molly as her world, once so promising and bright, is turned upside down. Benson portrays Molly’s longing and relationships with her family and friends.
But my favorite part of this book was Molly’s heartfelt prayers to God. Like most of us, Molly would put her trust in God and then take it back, but the ending of His Gift is a beautiful expression of fully relying on God and discovering the unseen blessings he has for his children.
