ENUMCLAW, Washington, Dec. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- "Leave It With Him" is a coming of age story set on the beautiful waterways in Washington State where crabbing and fishing are a way of life. It's the late 1960's and Luke, a 15 year old boy grieving about his parents' divorce and mother's serious illness, is challenged when he and his younger brother are forced to leave their Orcas Island home and move in with their father in Olympia. Luke feels overwhelmed by the circumstances and the new decisions he must make.
In the turbulence of a generation that was redefining American culture, Luke feels the circumstances and the new decisions he must make have put him in over his head. In an age of free love and doing "what feels good" he is committed to walking with the Lord, sexual purity, and taking responsibility for his own actions.
A new high school, friends, and church challenge Luke's comfort zone, but when he has a frightening experience on a moving boat that he can't stop, Luke learns he can't control everything and needs to trust the Lord and relax. Several things soon begin to happen that will test Luke's ability to trust in God's promises.
Luke finds himself surrounded by all types of people—from the cute Bobbi, who is his best friend's girlfriend, to Charlie—a disabled diabetic who owns the local marina, and fellow vocalists in the high school Madrigal group. "Leave It With Him" is full of drama that pulls the reader in to experience the action of being stranded on the water on a crab boat, early fall storms that come without warning, heroic water rescues and horseback riding.
"Leave It With Him" is a Christian romance novel that portrays teenage life in the late 1960's. Luke is not perfect, but an incredible teen who walks his faith on a daily basis. Through trials, doubts, loneliness, grief and disappointment, Luke must choose on a daily basis whether to rest in the grace and mercy of God or succumb to the pressures and temptations around him.
