By Margot Starbuck | IVP Books | softcover | 201 pages | $16
When author Margot Starbuck was a child, her parents felt blessed to adopt her and lavished her with love and assurance. However, with their eventual divorce, her sense of identity and value was shaken. As she grew into a young woman, she began to feel more and more responsible for the failure of relationships in her life and undeserving of any kind of love, whether from earthly parents or a heavenly Father.
While Starbuck presented herself outwardly as upbeat, happy and marching to her own drumbeat, deep down she struggled with rejection. The battle in her heart drove her to pursue love from her father and the true love she ultimately found from her heavenly Father.
The Girl in the Orange Dress is a story of a search for identity and worth. It is an encouraging one for any reader who has grappled with disappointment and hurt from a lost paternal relationship and found faith in God as heavenly Father.
