I read this booka and it was one I wanted all my friends to read. It is a great love story between a girl and her grandmother. There is also a love story between the girl and her friends. It is a must read for anyone who likes Francine Rivers.
I always like Francine Rivers and her books showing people facing life's problems and God providing a way out.
Don't expect the expected ending with this story. The characters are real the and the plot could really happen.
I found the mother's contentiousness droning on and on sometimes, but as one moves through the story, that is understood and again, I think the realistic approach of the author would bring all aspects to the story. Faith will be encouraged as we see the heroine grow, but Ms. Rivers doesn't spare hard subjects and grappling with issues--painful at times.
The end comes gently and leaves the reader comforted.
A wonderful multigenerational story! I couldn't put this down!
This book was hard to put done right from the beginning. Many hard lessons to learn in this book of how we treat other, see others, judge others, and why self must die! And lessons on why we must lean and trust in God and HIs will for us.
