Lilies on Daybreak Pond by Mindy Starns Clark

My review  today is on a short story, Lilies on Daybreak Pond.This story is a prequel to the Men of Lancaster County series. I loved this story; it's well written, the characters are complex, and it will touch your heart. I have never read any of Mindy's work before but I look forward to reading more of her books. The faith she puts in this story is heart changing.

Joel Miller is out looking for his family's dog, Shadow. Joel's daughter Sadie had disappeared four months ago and his family is grieving the loss. Now her dog had taken off, probably trying to find her. Joel finally goes to the one place he never wanted to go to again, Daybreak Pond, Sadie's favorite place. His heart breaks as he sees the evidence of her love of this place but he sees sign that the dog could have been there so he set out to find a way to get the dog to come to him.

This is a story of a man and his family grieving the loss of a child. How to deal with their grief and how to deal with a God that they think took her from them. It's a heartwarming story of find God in the midst of a storm and giving Him your trust in the midst of your struggle. God has a plan and you will love it if you give Him the right to move in your mess.
