Sweet Sanctuary by Sheila Walsh & Cindy Martinusen Coloma


Wren Evans has a complicated life. She is working hard at the local library to make ends meet and support her gifted son while trying to get him into a music school. She has the full load of responsibility as she has been divorced from her sons father and has not heard from him in almost ten years. Then all of a sudden he is in the picture, wanting to get to know his son. Throw in a man or two who show a romantic interest in her and life is just about as full as it can get. Add to that the fact that Wrens grandmother turns up on her doorstep and wants to plan a family reunion with Wren and her siblings who barely speak to each other and you have more than one person can handle. Wren finds herself trying to balance all the different aspects of her life while also trying to learn to let God be in control. Not an easy task.

I found the writing of the book to be good and the story flowed easily enough to allow me to read it in one sitting although I did notice a few grammatical errors that were not caught in editing. As the pace stepped up and moved from event to event I found myself just wanting to get to the part of the story where I would connect with the characters and become emotionally involved. Unfortunately this did not happen. Bottom line, I did not find it a compelling readinstead I found my reaction to the family dynamics leaving me feeling rather depressed and let down by the end of the book.

I received this complimentary copy from Thomas Nelson Publishing through their BookSneeze program. A positive review was not required and the opinions expressed here are my own.
