Are the sins of the mother and father visited upon by their own sons and daughters?

Undoubtedly damaged , Honey Lamb, like many, is a descendant of an unfortunate legacy of molestation, addiction,murder and bad decisions. For as long as she could remember she believed the unhappiness  she experienced was somehow bequeathed to her. The blood that surged through her veins seemed to be tainted and she often wondered about the DNA she possessed. Experiencing more than her share of misery at the hands of her mother , an alcoholic ,the source of her woes . Honey believed she had overcome her seemingly checkered path all by herself, when she met and married Mason; a man she loves beyond her own understanding. Unfortunately unsettling memories emerge ,to crack the veneer of her seemingly happy existence. Feeling unable to escape what she believed to be her destiny ,Honey makes a decision that may have ruined her life. Not realizing God places people in our lives for His purpose, she reluctantly embarks upon a journey that will open her heart to a divine inheritance. Will she accept what God has already given to her , or  will she shun the invitation of salvation and allow her familial carnal legacy continue to the next generation ? Will she come to understand that Jesus s blood redeemed us from a self-defeating existence because he became the sinful inheritance for us , while at the same time eradicating it forever , giving us a spiritual blood transfusion that would change us all?

PROLOGUE

Northern, Italy 1918

 He 562600_10150775814961514_1849583435_n He hadn’t washed in weeks. The country side was crawling with “Kraut” and all he could think about was the full lips that said his name with uninhibited desire.  She made him feel invincible and he needed to believe he was.  He would have done anything to have and keep her .

Those eyes …

She moved over him like a cunning feline. Under her spell he promised he would keep her brother Tanner quiet about everything. He had no idea how he was going  to silence the man who had become his friend , but he wasn’t going to let anyone ruin their plans. As he walked back their campfire after visiting a makeshift Latrine , his thoughts took him back to their night together.  Intoxicated by the cheap wine he agreed to the pact . She was beautiful , strong and most of all determined. He wanted to believe that they would have a good life once this useless war was over.  After settling in the muddy trench , he saw something imperceptibly move.  Italy could have been a beautiful place if it hadn’t been for this God forsaken war, he thought rubbing his eyes. He was unbelievably fatigued , so much that the foliage seemed to be moving by itself. He closed his eyes and opened them again to focus. Was there someone or something out there? He couldn’t wait until he was back in the U.S of A. More importantly he couldn’t wait to be with her.  He could still smell her. She was a vision a sweet .. temptress.
