A Tale of Hezekiah and Hepzibah by Terry Lopez chronicles the turbulent lives of two women. Neveah grows up in a broken home without knowing a mother. Unbeknownst to her, she has a guardian angel who fights those who are cruel to Neveah. After she graduates high school, she is more than excited to leave behind her abusive father. Sadly, her future becomes a replica of the past. Candace, the second main character, appears to have it all from the outside. Her difficult marriage and her wayward son, however, cause her continuous grief. When she meets Apollo and his charming daughter, Candace is taken by the small but tight-knit family. She becomes closely attached to them as she tries to escape the mayhem in her own family.

The characters in A Tale of Hezekiah and Hepzibah by Terry Lopez face complex problems. They are easy to connect with because of their imperfections. Neveah tries to escape the trail of abuse in her past but sadly ends up in similar circumstances. Candace, on the other hand, appears as if she has it all but her family is falling apart. The pace is fast and a lot happens along the way. The scenes are gripping and others are emotional, which makes the plot engaging. Lopez explores the themes of abuse and grief through interesting viewpoints. She also instills hope through Candace’s story. Overall, A Tale of Hezekiah and Hepzibah is engrossing and fascinating. The fantasy elements also adds an interesting twist. It is a great read for fans of Christian fiction books.
