A Twist of Faith, by Pepper Basham, is the first book in the Mitchell’s Crossroads Series. This entertaining novel is an extremely clever retelling of “Pygmalion” or “My Fair Lady” complete with contemporary plot twists, genuine humor, and swoon-worthy romance. The pacing of the plot is seamless, thoroughly engaging the reader page after page. The characters are extremely well-developed and their dialogue is full of real-life wit and wisdom. The characters are wholly relatable and intriguing as they pursue their dreams, grapple with grace and forgiveness, and soften their hearts in unexpected ways. This novel is funny, romantic, surprising, inspiring, and utterly endearing. It is a remarkable start to a series I cannot wait to continue reading. A Twist of Faith is delightful from beginning to end, and I enthusiastically recommend it to all readers.
