Item Description...
Running the family design firm while raising her young daughter alone, widow Melanie enters into an unexpected relationship with new church staff member Joel, whose troubled past makes him a prime suspect in a church theft. Original.

Publishers Description
In the four years since her husband's death, Melanie LaSalle's life has been consumed with managing the family design firm and caring for her five-year-old daughter, Jerica. The possibility of a new relationship is the last thing on her mind. But when Melanie meets Joel Ellington, a new staff member at her church, she is instantly attracted to his warm spirit.
As their friendship deepens, however, Melanie is troubled by something she can't quite understand or explain. Joel seems to be hiding something-in fact, most areas of his past are off-limits, even to her. Because of her growing feelings for him, Melanie pushes her doubts away. But when unsettling facts come to light-and when Joel disappears, along with the contents of a church bank account-she can no longer ignore her fears.
Now, torn between her feelings for Joel and evidence mounting against him, Melanie faces a heart-wrenching decision: to forget the man who gave her reason to love again or to trust Joel enough to give him her heart.
Exploring the themes of the importance of truth, loyalty, and trust, "A Scarlet Cord" illustrates that who we are in Christ depends little on outward appearances and much on our relationship with him, and that through faith, we can find places of comfort, healing, and selfless love.

Sweet book....  Jun 11, 2007
I can't believe I read it in two days! It is really good. Has a nice story and a good romance. Worth reading.
Inspiring story about trusting God  Jun 6, 2006
The Scarlet Cord by Deborah Raney is a stand out Christian novel. Melanie is recovering from the death of her husband Richard slowly by caring for her daughter Jerica when a new man shows up at her church. Joel seems to be everything she's looking for in a husband and father for her child, but as they grow closer, secrets about his past threaten to pull them apart. At first I was disappointed that Raney disclosed Joel's secret so early in the book, but as I continued to read, I could see that the disclosure was about Joel's character. He was such an open, honest person that keeping the secret was tearing him apart. Raney does a good job at pacing the story, and the story moves in unexpected ways. What a reader would normally expect to happen in this type of story (specifically one plot element) never happens, and it's a blessing, because it keeps you reading, wondering when and if it will. I cried through the last twenty-five pages of the book at the depth of Jerica's love for Joel, and when I closed the book, I had a smile on my face and realized there was hope in my heart. In all Christian fiction there is a pivotal point within the story when the main character feels the peace of God descend upon them. The whole story turns on that point: if it's not believable to the reader, the story and the message won't carry any weight. In The Scarlet Cord, that point is not only believable, but it passes on to the reader as well. Amazing book.
A Scarlet Cord  Sep 18, 2003
Action and adventure, mystery and romance all rolled up into one! That is what A Scarlet Cord offers you the reader. Deb Raney is a gifted author. She uses her talent to touch the reader's heart and to show her deep faith in God. I just absolutely love all her books.
A Story worth staying up all night to finish!  Aug 10, 2003
I haven't read a suspenseful romance this emotionally charged in a long time. You want to believe in these characters. . . your heart will ache for them. There's nothing contrived here--just real, heart-wrenching conflict in a page-turning read. Highly recommended!!
Heartwarming, Magnificent Tale  Jul 4, 2003
Author Deborah Raney is an expert at asking the tough questions and then weaving a magnificent tale to come to a satisfying answer. A SCARLET CORD, the author's latest novel, asks, "Is it ever right to hide the truth? Can deception be redeemed?" When Melanie LaSalle meets Joel Ellington, she finds a man she begins to care about ~ a man who awakens feelings in her she thought she'd buried with her husband four years before. But as the relationship deepens, so do the mounting suspicions and accusations against him. Has she believed a lie? Is Joel the man she thinks he is? You'll have to read to book to find out ~ and the ending may surprise you. Like her previous books, BENEATH A SOUTHERN SKY and AFTER THE RAINS, this latest work ~ A SCARLET CORD ~ will keep you turning pages, and give you a heart-warming read.
