Joanna will soon discover new friends, and unexpected enemies.

The choices ahead will test her courage; the surprising twists of fate will challenge her faith as she faces a day of ashes, a time of sorrow, and an extraordinary new chance for love, happiness, and...Belonging.

This book was a good read for me; although, I must say that it was not as good as I was expecting. I found that the central character of the story just wasn't as sympathetic as she probably should have been - at least in my opinion. Anyway, I give Belonging: A Novel by Nancy Thayer a B+! I will certainly be reading more books by this author in the future; although perhaps not right away.

Ok.............this one follows the rule don't judge a book by it's cover! When I received in the mail I thought...........this probably isn't going to be good.....just didn't get a good feeling. Well once I started I had a hard time stopping! Loved this story! Has some twists you just don't see coming!
