Doralyn Moore has a Master of Education degree from the University of Toronto and over thirty-years’ experience in social services, working with diverse populations. This has informed much of the storyline of Seventy Times Seven. She has also been involved for many years in Christian ministry, both as a home group leader and as a lay pastor.
Doralyn hopes that the journey of her characters in Seventy Times Seven will encourage readers to consider seriously the life-changing news of salvation through Jesus Christ and to trust in the goodness and faithfulness of God. Doralyn lives with her husband in a small community east of Toronto, Canada. Their two boys are married and they have five beautiful grandchildren.
A readable and involving tale about several characters finding new directions in life." --Kirkus Reviews

A heartfelt story of a lost young man and young woman that meet and finally find happiness. Their ability to forgive all the wrongs that they incurred is certainly an eye opener for many of us.
What a wonderful novel!
5.0 Star Review from Literary Titan

The characters and voices (of "Seventy Times Seven") were written so beautifully. Moore created a novel bursting with relatable characters and prudent life lessons. This book contains mature content, but it is delivered in a thoughtful way that sheds light on the dark topics while still making it easy to process. Seventy Times Seven is a poignant romance novel that will appeal to anyone looking for an emotional Christian fiction story.
Seventy Times Seven is a story about courage and the often unseen hand of God moving in the lives of human beings in the midst of difficulty and confusion. It is a story of desperate courage: Courage to escape from abuse, Courage to forgive both abuse and betrayal, Courage to face the complexity and confusion of being an immigrant without legal standing in a strange country, Courage to trust God’s love, and Courage to love again after abuse, betrayal, and broken relationships.
