Touchstone Hills. Based on a true story
Have you ever felt like Job? Wondering where God was and why He allowed tragedy to happen in your life?
"Touchstone Hills" is a story about Daphne, a 19-year old girl filled with hope and joy at her life-changing spiritual discovery, when the unexpected happened. Here's an excerpt from the book:
