I found it very hard to relate to Ava, and for much of this story didn't even like her. She didn't seem authentic to me until the very end of the novel when she returned to visit her family. It's only then that I felt like I was reading about a real, multi-dimensional person. The brief moments at the end were not sufficient to turn her into a person I really cared about. For most of the story, she seemed flat and predictable.
The story redeems itself somewhat during the final third of the book when we finally get to examine some real issues. The ending is what pushed this up to a three star book for me, although I can't say that anything that happened really surprised me. It just felt like the authors had finally gotten around to telling the story they wanted to tell from the beginning. Unfortunately, I simply had little interest in these characters. Fans of Christian fiction will no doubt find much to enjoy here. For this woman of faith, I will continue to look for some Christian fiction with a bit more literary heft.
Ava had what appeared to be a perfect life, if you were on the outside looking it. Her family came complete with two 'perfect' kids. But then her daughter called of her upcoming wedding, and her son struggled with addiction. Her husband's company was also going through some trials and tribulations, all of which were embarrassing to the family.
Ava heads to her childhood home...somewhere she vowed never to return to. But through this journey, she found the redemptive power of love and faith.
children about her early life that is full of many broken-hearted situatins. Ava decides to go back to her chidhood home to heal both the past and the present. She will be returning home with her younger cousin'x baby left on her doorstep. Ava is also troubled that her weeping willow tree is dying, a gift from her brother from their childhood home. The authors' narration of Ava'a trip home is as if they are
telling it just to you. It's reminescent of the readers' own childhood years as told, good or bad, by older relatives. My attention was completely absorbed in
Ava's journey. Ava's own broken heart has a new song at journey's end. And, the
tree has new life.
