Mary P. Nettles's Newly Released "The Color of Roses" is an Absorbing Novel about a Man who Must Confront the State of His Faith before He Can Be with the Woman He Loves

"The Color of Roses" from Christian Faith Publishing author Mary P. Nettles is a wise, provocative novel that tells the story of Charlie Drake, a charmer and overall winner by the world's standards--high school football star turned pro, TV personality, successful businessman--whose only lack is a wife; but when he meets and falls for Maggie, it turns out he must first face the emptiness of his life and perhaps Maggie's family and her own doubts--before they can be together.

MEADVILLE, Pa., July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "The Color of Roses": a moving romance that underscores a godly relationship. "The Color of Roses" is the creation of published author Mary P. Nettles, a graduate of Moody Bible Institute and tutor at a Christian boys boarding school in Sebastian, Florida, where she lives with her husband of fifty-four years and with whom she has two married sons, four grandchildren, and a great-grandchild.

Nettles writes of Charlie's dark night of the soul before the light hits, "Memories flooded him. Memories of backseat encounters at sixteen with his first girlfriend, Norma. She was his biggest mistake, but his worst memory was the disastrous marriage that ended in the tragic death of his wife, Elizabeth. In the years since Charlie left home, lessons his parents taught and he'd rejected haunted him. I'm a hypocrite. Before Norma, I thought I was a Christian, but it wasn't real. Good works and charities doesn't make me a Christian, any more than childhood church attendance. Christianity is not about what I do. It's about who I am. I'm God's creation, but I'm not His child. In desperation, Charlie dropped to his knees by the side of the bed and began to pray. He had no idea how long he was there, but he got up a different man. His repentance brought peace—peace with God and peace with himself."

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Mary P. Nettles's new book is a much-needed illustration of what it means to nurture a romantic relationship in right standing with Christian values of abstinence and saving oneself for the marriage bed.

Romantics at heart who are nevertheless jaded with the promiscuity and amorality of today's culture will find joy and solace in Nettles's entertaining and enlightening novel.
