The Lion Cubs By Chrissie M. Dennis

Fifteen-year-old loner Lexi Vogan has had enough. Four foster families in two years would be enough to make anybody run away! Alone in the world, she flees to Jacksonville where a group of runaway teens live in abandoned tunnels below the city. It seems like the perfect place for a forgotten face. Liz Swavier, thirty-six, became a widow two years ago when her husband succumbed to cancer, but she's managing just fine. At least, that's what she tells herself. Working long hours as a doctor in the ER, Liz's friends and family grow concerned that she's hurling herself into work to numb her grief. Then, on a typical Friday afternoon, an appointment with divine intervention causes these two very different lives to collide, beginning a journey towards restoration that only an all-knowing, loving God could weave together.
What a facinating read, could not put it down!! I have to admit, frst when I started reading I didn't think I would enjoy the chapters flipping back and forth between Liz & Lexi's first person view but I believe it gave the book a whole new insight. What a facinating story about an orphan runaway named Lexi & Liz and how God intervened to make their paths cross. Lexi's been in several foster and group homes and experienced things no child should ever have to go through, but we know it happens everyday. Liz is a workaholic nurse who never takes time for herself because she's afraid of her emotions since her husbands passing. God is in control of both their lives, even though Lexi tends to claim he's not real, and shows us how his timing is always perfect as he causes both the girls to break down walls and open hearts that not everyone is evil or out to get you. This book is about hurt, anguish, deceit, then moves on to forgiveness, happiness, and new beginnings. I couldn't have thought of a better ending to a wonderful read! Definitely reccomend you pick this one up. But beware, dishes will go unwashed and laundry will pile up because you just have to see what will happen next! Enjoy!
