Paper can be torn and dolls can break.

So can humans.

Kite Tanner, a widow, struggles with the sudden loss of her husband.

Priscilla Martin, the minister’s daughter, pursues money and men with passion.

Lydia Dooley, a prayer-warrior, battles a brain tumor and a daughter who can’t forget the sins of her mother’s past.

Eve Stanton, a talented Christian singer and songwriter, is brought to her knees when the truth about her marriage is revealed.

Mary Rabin, kidnapped from her front yard at the age of eight, returns forty years later to reunite with the family and friends she’d fought for decades to find her way back to.

The bonds of family and friendship are tested.

Will the women’s faith in God and each other stand the test of time? Or will it crumple like paper?

Paper Dolls Priscilla by author Kara R. Hunt

Book #3 in the Habakkuk Series

Former gold-digger Priscilla King was looking for a sugar-daddy when she met Barry King.

She never expected to fall in love–or to find her way back to her faith. Now, married to the man of her dreams, she regrets the decisions she made in her past, but she’s not ashamed of the lessons she’s learned. One of those lessons: Don’t hurt the people you love.

Priscilla has told Barry all her secrets, and he loves her anyway, but his adult children think she’s a fraud. They’re determined to put an end to their father’s marriage–by any means necessary.

To fight for her marriage, Priscilla must battle her own step-children. How can she keep from hurting those she loves most without losing her marriage…or herself?
