Carrie Gerlach Cecil’s refreshingly authentic new novel, One Sunday (Howard Books) is a story of a likeable, yet flawed character named Alice Ferguson. Alice is a self-made woman in her late 30s whose life is centered around her career in L.A. She unexpectedly finds love, even more surprisingly becomes pregnant and follows her new husband to a home in Tennessee. Far outside her comfort zone, Alice discovers feelings of insecurity and loneliness as she comes face-to-face with her troubled past. Through the friendship of her neighbors, she is able to open her mind to the idea of God’s love for her. In a very down-to-earth way, One Sunday reveals that one is never too broken, tarnished or sinful to turn to God and receive forgiveness, love and restoration.
