For two years Gabriel has followed every lead, no matter how small, in the hope of finding his wife who has been kidnapped. He and the police always seem to be one step behind, until investigators give him information that helps him launch the plan to find her.
When Lena looks up into the eyes of her husband, who she hasn’t seen in two years, she is humiliated and wants nothing more than to run before he recognizes her. And so she does. It’s only when she faces a desperate situation that she is forced to return and ask for his help.
As fate twists its way through both of their lives, they realize it doesn’t matter how much they have prepared to face the realities of losing someone, or finding them again, redemption is in letting go of the past and finding a future just off the beaten path.

When I first started writing this novel, it was because of a dream I had. I woke in the middle of the night crying, sweating, and praising God. I immediately got up, went to my computer and started writing about the dream. I was weeping the entire time and barely able to see through my tears.
In the dream, I was homeless, alone, and had drifted from God. I was hungry and went into a food kitchen to eat. I was dirty, smelled terrible, and missed Larry so much, only I knew I could never go home. I had done too much and had too much done to me to ever make it back to him.
After the person in the food kitchen put the food on my plate, I looked up and it was my husband, Larry. I was humiliated and desperately didn’t want him to recognize me. I was about to leave when in the dream Larry’s face turned to Jesus and He said, “I have been looking for you.”
That dream became the cornerstone of this novel.

It Never Occurred to Her is my first introduction to the talents of author Michelle Jester. After reading this, it will not be the last. I thought it was a pretty good read. It is one that tugged at my heart. It really spoke to me at times. It includes some important life lessons, such as, letting go and the power of forgiveness. I like that there was an element of mystery to it, also. I was a little intimidated with the size of the book but quickly realized how easily it was to keep turning the pages and finished it in no time. I loved it!
It Never Occurred to Her will be getting five stars from me. Readers who enjoy reading clean fiction dealing with real life issues will want to pick this one up. I would love to read more by Michelle Jester in the future.
I received a paperback copy of It Never Occurred to Her from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
