A great book written by a fantastic author. The story focuses on a girl who loses her parents in a terrible accident and her relationship with her grandfather, her cousins, aunts, friends and eventually someone that loves her.
I just LOVE a good Lori Wick book! This one is no exception she's a very talented Author who knows how to get the readers emotionally involved in the book.. i always laugh and cry with the characters in her books! Another great one!
I loved everything about this book! It captured my interest from the first and was a definite "couldn't put it down" from chapter to chapter. The challenges the main character goes through and how her relationships are woven throughout are complex and interesting. Loved this book!
The book starts off slow. "White Chocolate Moments" is set in current day. The main character, a promising dancer and straight "A" student, loses her parents in a car crash before she is a teenager and goes to live with her wealthly grandfather. Enter in a jealous cousin, the grandfather's favorite grandchild, and the reader figures out quickly that the main character is in trouble of the adolecent kind.
Things come to a head when the main character graduates from schools and without saying goodbye, leaves home and gets her first job. Along the way she meets some people she ends up becoming great friends with and works for a company with a kind, great looking owner, but because her past relationships are a a mess, she cannot allow herself to move on with her life.
This story focuses on the cause and fix of strained relationships and how this affects futures relationships. It is also about how God can help each character learn to forgive when they allow Him to be a priority in theit lives.
I believe that Lori Wick's writing is best when she does period pieces. For example, many of her books are written during WWII, the wild west, and some are written to refelct Jane Austen's time, to name a few.
This book would be better suited for the teen reader.
