About R. Marshall Wright
"Laura, Don't Run" by R. Marshall Wright is a story about a young girl named Laura who doesn't believe that she can be loved by anyone especially God. She was abused by her father and she believes that if God loved her, He could have stopped him.
Laura is always running from everyone and God, but she learns that God gives everyone free choices and that He has been with her all along.
Laura decides to get away from her father, but her plan backfires and she ends up in Hobbs Mountain Detention Center. She plans to be a country music star in Nashville, but God and Stone has different plans.
Will Laura stop running long enough to discover what God 's plans are for her?
I wish I could say that every character in the book has a happy ever after but I can't and that is okay because like Laura's learns, everyone has free choices and just like in real life, there are some that choose the way that leads to death. I like books that are fiction but could be real somewhere in the world.
I think a sequel would be good. I would like to read more about these characters.
This story is written in third person POV (by the pastor).
This is a clean love story but the background is about rape, but it is not description and yes I would let teens read this book.
I was given a complimentary copy by the author. These opinions are my own.
