In A Town Called Redemption by Jodi Gardner Bremer, Tex is a young drifter who enters town and plans to quickly be moving on. However, God and Martha have other plans for Tex. Martha is a widowed, retired school teacher and her life now is concentrated on doing good for anyone she can. When she comes across Tex sitting in the center of town on a misty morning, she immediately pulls out the Thermos of hot coffee she always carries with her and gives him a cup. Before Tex knows what has happened to him, Martha has taken him under her wing and is bringing him to see Harold. Harold is an old widower who needs help delivering his wood, and he just happens to have a small empty cottage that he immediately offers to Tex. As Tex meets the citizens of Redemption, attends church and shares in their lives, he slowly sees another side of himself. However, his past life sneaks in, along with the secrets he has been holding back.

A Town Called Redemption is a marvelous, God based picture of how life should be for every Christian person. Redemption is the perfect small town and I want to move there today. I found myself completely immersed in this story and hated to say goodbye to the people of Redemption. God and Christian life were evident in everything that took place, and the story offers a positive message to all who read A Town Called Redemption. Jodi Gardner Bremer wrote this book with great attention to details, creating characters that are special and a plot that keeps you reading way into the night. This is a winner and should be a must-read for all Christians and non-Christians alike.
