This novel shows how the Lord places people in our lives for a reason, even when we don’t understand why.
Four women, four lives, one God. Zora Bridgeforth, is twenty-nine and grappling with identity issues. While in search of for her deceased mother’s bridal veil, Zora happens upon a letter which reveals that she was adopted. Zora is devastated and vows to find her biological family. To find an outlet for her feelings, she joins a multi-church women’s discipleship group. Unexpectedly Zora finds the joy of her friendships with three women in her discipleship group (Monét Sullivan, Paula Manns, and Belinda Stokes) turns out to be God’s hand at work. As the ladies drop their facades and learn to find healing through each other’s testimonies, a series of events unfolds to an outcome Zora could have never imagined. Written from a young, fresh perspective, Zora’s Cry is an inspirational read for the woman who appreciates the power of friendships and the power of God’s love.
