The characters are very well defined and the story just got you trapped.
Good Work !
I can't wait to read Olga's next Book !
Within the pages of Borrowing My Mother's Saints, Olga G. Soaje has woven humor and pain together with love, added a few threads of humility and giving along with a good dose of backbone and created a warm, endearing and uplifting masterpiece! Her characters are dimensional, fresh and realistic, their dialogue and thoughts can make you laugh or have you reaching for the tissues, all in the same scene. Chick Lit at it's best!
I will be looking for a sequel.
It's light-hearted, but avoids being too goofy. The characters are fun and well-developed, and largely avoid being the clichéd cast of your run-of-the-mill romantic comedy.
Julianna is a likable heroine who, when things don't go her way, deals with the issues at hand. She is strong, determined, focused, and driven. She is the kind of leading lady you can get behind, because she knows where she's going and does what she needs to do in order to get there. There's very little waffling or overly dramatic woe-is-me from Julianna.
The rest of the characters each serve their purpose. I particularly like the relationship between Julianna and her mother, which deepens as the story goes on, when Julianna moves back home to help her mother through a difficult cancer diagnosis and treatment process.
Along the way, as one issue comes along and then another, Julianna refers back to the patron saints she learned about from her mother, learning to be inspired by them, and to place hope in them. As a reader who is not Catholic and has never really understood the concept of saints in the Catholic tradition, this element was actually kind of fun and helped me understand the idea a little better.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Borrowing My Mother's Saints. It's still a light, quick read. It's not deep and profound literature. But it's a perfect novel if you're looking for a quick escape and a little bit of romance. And a heroine who's got her stuff together.
