I really wanted to read “Amazing Love” by K Dawn Byrd as soon as I read the description. I love a story that has strong female characters that overcome trials. This book definitely did not disappoint. It started out with the main female character having feelings for a handsome small town pastor, while she was a high paid prostitute. This is a Christian book so the plot surprised me a bit but it quickly took a direction that was unpredictable. It was so unpredictable that I never knew what was going to happen from one chapter to the next. Most Christian fiction is predictable. Granted, I knew it would have a happy ending but the twists and turns in this story was like driving on a steep, curvy country road. It was an amazing journey.


I loved the authors unusual style of writing about child abuse, sexual abuse and prostitution as it is in todays society.  She managed to  add in a pastor who makes choices that gives the community gossips plenty to talk about.  I loved the real-to-life characters and how they each represented society today. It started out with a bang and ended the same way. I was into the story from page one until it ended. I had never read anything by this author before. I will be reading more of her books.


What I really liked was the fact that each character was strong. The pastor followed the promptings of the Spirit even when it took him out of his comfort zone and into the gossip tree of the community. The female character was abused as child and grew to feel unworthy to the point that she thought she had to be a prostitute to be loved.  It is amazing as she finds that she has an eternal destiny in spite of what she has done.


I loved this book and give it a 5 star. I would recommend it to my friends.




 Gabe Knight, a pastor in a small coastal town, finds his life is turned upside down when Dee Dillow arrives and hires him to remodel an estate she’s inherited from her aunt. Dee dashes his plans for wedded bless when on a drunken binge, she divulges that she’s the highest paid call girl in Nevada and part-owner of the ritziest brothel in the state.

Gabe falls in love with her, but can’t believe he’s hearing the voice of God when a still, small voice tells him to marry her. After much questioning, they marry and he is deliriously happy. Until, Dee betrays him.

Gabe soon discovers just how hard it is to have the unconditional love God calls him to have for his wife, the kind of love God has for his children. When faced with losing her, Gabe realizes what true love is, how much it hurts, and just how much God loves and is willing to sacrifice for his children.
