Everything he has built his life and future on has been torn away.

Cash McCall has loved Dr. Renee Dawson for half his life. Although they’ve talked about a future together, she has never believed it was the right time for them to get engaged. Now she has ended their relationship, and he has no idea why.

Everything Renee worked so hard for is in jeopardy. One agonizing decision has changed everything, and she has been forced to shatter the heart of the man she loves. And her own.

The extremist militant group The Arm is on a mission. Its leader doesn’t care how many innocent lives are lost in the pursuit of the group’s end goal, and Renee has seen something she was not supposed to see.

If Cash can’t get to her in time, Renee could end up in the crosshairs of the terrorists, and he may lose her—and any chance at the life he’d always envisioned—forever.

Wow! From grief to tears to laughter to fear to hope to triumph, Written in Ink elicited a rich emotional response from me and touched my heart deeply.

Before I go into any details, I encourage you to hurry and read Lost Down Deep, the first book of the Rose Tattoo Trilogy. While I’m not giving any spoilers, the stories in this series work together with each picking up where the others leave off.

As I anticipated, this is Cash’s story. And it certainly starts out rough as his heart gets stomped on by the woman he had loved from the time he was 15! I was amazed at the deep love Cash had for Renee. His grief led him to a search for peace, which, in turn, led him to see how much he needed to extend forgiveness to her. I loved how the parable about the man forgiven much and yet wouldn’t forgive one who owed him little played into the story. And the clear message of salvation.

From reading the synopsis, I had thought the reason Renee broke up with Cash was completely different from what I discovered it to be, so don’t assume you know what this story is about yet… However, you can rest assured it is well-written, with suspense, humor, and faith intertwined.

I loved the interjection of light-heartedness in the form of the cake testing. There was a wonderful balance between the heavy sadness that Cash and Renee experienced and the hope they clung to. And the bit of humor put in just the right place to keep it from being depressing or unpleasant to read.

As a word of caution, Written in Ink deals with abortion and post-abortion syndrome in some places. There are no graphic details, yet there are mentions of the atrocities enacted on the unborn. I did appreciate how Sara Davison presented multiple sides to the issue, not presenting her opinion as to be the only correct one.

Readers who enjoy Christian fiction and love reading books they just can’t set down will want to be sure to read all of the Rose Tattoo Trilogy.
