Stepping Into Sunlight by Sharon Hinck

Coming in September 2008 from Bethany House is Sharon Hinck's next contemporary novel.

Sharon talks about the story over at her blog:

"Although the story has quirky characters and dry humor in the first-person voice (like my other novels), this novel has a slightly more serious tone. Penny Sullivan witnesses a violent crime right before her husband leaves on his first deployment as a Navy chaplain. She battles post-traumatic stress, feels completely isolated and alone, and needs some tools on her journey toward healing.

She develops "Penny's Project" - and takes tiny steps forward as she tries to do a kind act for a different person each day. I love the theme of the way God uses wounded people to help and support each other. Like the widow's mite, this Penny doesn't come from a place of abundance or power. Yet God is able to make a difference in her and through her.
