Ballina author’s third book of Christian romance trilogy highlights redemption, freedom from sin

BALLINA, Australia — Author Deborah Ballard announces the nationwide release of her new Christian romance novel, “Restoring the Years,” which is the final sequel to the A Single Moment trilogy.

In “Restoring the Years,” Ballard explored the depth of the love of Christ along with the depth of his grace, mercy and forgiveness further and came to an understanding that Jarrod, although an abuser, needs Christ’s love, mercy and grace — leading him to salvation from his sinful nature as well.

Every soul on this planet has sinned, not one is without sinning. Jesus came for everyone; He despises the sin but loves the sinner. In the conclusion of this story, Merinda’s life had been restored — she was in Christ. Jarrod gave his heart to Jesus in gaol, therefore it was now his time to be saved, forgiven, redeemed and set free from the imprisonment of a sinful nature. The author depicts that Christ’s love is for all who will accept and believe in him, beginning the redemptive journey of changing people from their old sinful nature and behaviors to their new identity in Christ.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or
