In the Cradle Lies (by Olivia Newport) … forgiveness, accountability, and grace flows

This was a wonderful follow-up to the author’s previous book, The Inn at Hidden Run. And while it could be read as a stand alone, you would miss some of the background about Nolan and Jillian that helps. I love the father/daughter duo and their relationship. The characters are endearing and their supportive relationships add to the book.

I enjoyed the back and forth time frame. You learn about Tucker’s family history, which enhances the present day story. It adds just enough mystery to keep you flipping the pages as you race to the end. After having just read Lisa Wingate’s book, Before We Were Yours, the backstory was interesting and heartwrenching. You will continue wondering exactly what is triggering Tucker’s reckless behavior.

There is a theme of forgiveness, accountability, and grace that flows through the pages. I am a huge fan of the Tree of Life Series. And I’m looking forward to the next adventure with Jillian and Nolan.

Thank you to NetGalley and Shiloh Run Press for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
