REVIEW: A Thing of Beauty by Lisa Samson


Fiona Hume has left Hollywood behind in an attempt to escape from child molestation and seemingly uncaring parents.  Now at age 32, she is 10-12 years out of the business and floundering as she tries to figure out her place in society.  With her once plentiful acting funds, she purchased a house in great need of repair, much like her own person.  The house, like Fiona, carries too much baggage.  It is cluttered and not functioning properly.  Enter forge master and iron working artist Josiah who I saw as a Chris-figure for Fiona.  He likes and even loves her unconditionally.  He helps her truly begin to heal as he provides a strong, God-as-father base for her to build from.  The other men in Fiona’s life also take new roles as she comes to terms with her past and her future.

Although I found the story a little confusing in the first couple chapters, I ended up greatly enjoying this story from Lisa Samson.
