Greater Love


“Greater Love” by Robert Whitlow is the third book in the Tides of Truth series. This book continues the story of Georgia lawyer, Tami Taylor. Tami comes from a very strict Christian family and is now faced with the realities of the world. Tami joins a law firm in Savannah and has to defend a young girl named Jessie. Jessie has run away from home and has many secrets she is hiding from Tami. Tami and her landlady take her in and show kindness she has never had before. When Jessie is kidnapped, Tami thinks she has run away again and she is worried for her safety. Tami also has her own problems to worry about. Her landlady has a form of dementia and her health has declined. Tami also must figure out who she wants to spend the rest of her life with, Zach or Vince.

This book shows us what many lawyers have to go through everyday at their jobs, and the hard decisions they must make in their cases so that they do not compromise their Christian principles. “Greater Love” could be read as a stand alone novel, but I would recommend reading the first two books in the series, “Deeper Water” and “Higher Hope”, so you could read Tami’s story from the beginning. I received a free copy of this book to review from Thomas Nelson.
