Review

A heart-warming story about what it means to be a sister and a woman struggling with self-doubt. The characters are so well-developed you'll believe you've just made two new friends. A great read!

From the Author

A loved one called me Jezebel the day I wore red lipstick to church. I was a young single mother at the time, so I found the idea of my red lipstick paving the road to hell quite hilarious. At least that's what I said out loud. Inside, I was crying. Fortunately, a ridiculous comment like that didn't shake my faith. Pissed me off, but it didn't make me turn my back on God. I figure comments like that have shaken others' faith. Funny how people like that think they're glorifying God. I think Jesus would have something to say about that. The Jesus I know was about something far bigger than red lipstick. Don't even get me started on the number of times I've heard people talk about tattoos being of the devil. Or how drug addicts are a product of their own bad choices so we just need to leave them to go to hell one hit at a time.
Over the years people have done a lot to ruin the words and actions of Jesus for non-believers. That thought is directly behind my decision to write Christian fiction in addition to the other genres I write in. The Jezebel comment and the anger and hurt it caused led directly to Grace is Enough (out now) and Letting Go. 
I held those emotions back for so long, I didn't even realize they were simmering in my brain, just waiting for a chance to break out. Funny thing, though; even when I started writing, I held the pain back. I didn't let myself feel completely. Someone once told me writing is like bleeding on the page. They're right.

This is a good book about resolving relational issues that have divided family members who truly love each other. I enjoyed reading it, though Anna's having three children by three different husbands was a little unbelievable, as was as the mother's reluctance to talk about the girls' hero father.

The author has an MA in English, so I found the occasional errors, like "your" instead of "you're" to be especially annoying. The quick exchange of points of view verged on head-hopping. Cass either resided in California or Kansas. It wasn't clear.

But all those things can be resolved with additional editing. On the whole, the story was engaging, the characters well-developed, and the ending satisfying.

I really enjoyed this story. The story really hit home in many ways to my own life. The only thing I had an issue with was half the time it says Cass and her husband are from California and then the book says Cass and her husband live in Kansas - confusing! Also, lots of head hopping in the story. It could be tightened up and be a GREAT story. But it is hard to keep up with who is actually seeing things or speaking etc. An editor would catch the wrong word choice, head hopping, and location confusion.

Anna is a real character with real problems and so is her sister but they are family and this makes a great read.

This book has many things I still need to consider. Sometimes I feel as if I am the only person who doesn't know the answers. For every person will have their own answer. It is a religious novel but many of my religious friends would enjoy it.

The book was very well written. I truly enjoyed the book.. It showed that we withdraw from family sometimes, but usually get drawn back to the fold.

I thought this book had a good story line. I liked the theme of overcoming lifes obstacles when God is present in our lives. The ending could have been more powerful.
