On Every Side by Karen Kingsbury

A young small town reporter is outspoken about her views in the stories she covers-especially adoption. Through her years as a reporter she has seen many children come and go-all except one, a Chinese girl with a deformity. No one wants her anymore because she's "too old."
The reporter is also distressed when she hears that the town Jesus statue is being challenged as un-Constitutional-by her former boyfriend, a lawyer who used to claim to be a Christian. She is dumbfounded because he used to love the statue.
The young lawyer is mad at God for letting his mother die, so he decides to fight God at every turn.
The idea behind this book is interesting. At least this is a court case where the focus lawyer actually loses. But the surrounding events that make everything turn out perfectly are what keeps this book off the Elite List.
The characters are just average, as can be expected with this type of book.
All in all, this book is good, just not great.
3 stars
