Online PR News – 08-March-2022 – Plymouth, MA – Can a chaplain of Bethany R&L Behavioral Healthcare Center and his mysterious collection of bottles restore hope and faith to three people living in despair?

Elk Lake Publishing is pleased to announce the release in paperback and eBook formats for the Amazon Kindle of The Bottle House by Susan Grant, Addison, Maine.

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor, LuGina Dumas said, “Susan Grant takes readers on a spiritual revelation of how past regrets affect our mental health and cause individuals to lose faith. The Bottle House teaches us that no matter how low we fee, Jesus can forgive us, restore us, and give us comfort in every situation we go through.

When the unpredictable happens we can feel completely out of control. That’s a horrible feeling. The chaplain looked up as the two women called to the children on the swings telling them it was time to leave. But there is something else that can happen when the predictable is turned upside down. Just as a person can feel out of control he can also think God has lost control of the circumstance. For some they begin to imagine God as a weakling. Again Chaplain Miller paused while Stefan stared off in the distance thinking. What’s even more scary is when the unpredictable happens and a person concludes that God does have control and chooses not to act. Depending on your view of the unpredictable things of life that can be a very difficult thing for people to deal with.

Where is God in our tragedies? The Bottle House, a Christian mystery and suspense book, traces the journey of three individuals who struggle with grief, feeling angry with God and despair. They meet Chaplain Joseph Miller, who has a mysterious collection of bottles in various shapes and colors. In time, these three discover that the chaplain possesses separate bottles for each of them. When he reveals the bottles’ purpose to these three, it restores hope and joy.
