I enjoyed this story tremendously! A Twist of Faith is the third book by Pepper Basham that I have read, and I have loved each one! In this case, I listened to the audiobook version of the story. I thought that the narrator did a fabulous job with the various accents and dialects of these characters. She had a very soothing voice that added to the feeling of being in rural Appalachia.
As for the story, when the book began I wasn’t very fond of Dr. Adelina Roseland. She seemed a bit stuck up and had preconceived notions about many things. I wondered why she acted as she did. Of course, the author proceeded to do a beautiful job of opening up who this character was, which allowed me to understand her backstory. I ended up loving Adelina!
As for Reese Mitchell, he had me from the get go! What a terrific character! Now, he had his faults, too. He carried around some baggage that got in the way a time or two, but he had an amazing heart and was such a good dad to his kids.
A Twist of Faith is now a top favorite of mine. I look forward to reading or listening to the next book in the series. And if you are looking for an enjoyable audiobook to listen to, I definitely recommend this one.
