Newton & Polly by Jody Hedlund
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
How did I miss this book when it released last year?! Waterbrook needs to do a better job of book promotion. I love Jody Hedlund’s stories, and she knocked this one out of the park. Seriously. The way she introduces John Newton and then develops his character so that the reader is sucked into his story is nothing short of brilliant. Everyone will love Polly, she’s an incredible young woman, but it’s Newton who steals the spotlight as we watch him become the man God wanted him to be. It’s a roller coaster of highs and lows. No spoiler here. Read the book!
