I found this book to be an interesting story of one woman’s spiritual journey as she approaches her altered future holding the hands of her two young sons after her husband divorces her because of his involvement with another woman.
If you have seen the movie Hope Floats, then in many ways this is the Christian version, but with a few twists. The writing is solid and the character development is gradual. In fact, I really didn't like Jennifer (Jen) or her mother Joella, but as Jen matured spiritually and looked deeper into her own heart I found myself in her corner cheering her on through her challenges, trials and tribulations. I also had a few LOL moments courtesy of her eldest son. So typical of a young teen.
This is a clean novel that focuses on Christian values, especially in seeking God's will through prayer. It's an absorbing journey well worth the price of the ticket.
I have enjoyed this book for three reasons. One reason is that it explains the emotional and personal reasons many of us funeral directors choose this life. It was interesting to see how Jen matures into her appreciation of this profession and comes to an understanding of what we do. The second reason is that Angela has done her homework as to the language and understanding of the "technical" side of the embalming process and prep room. I appreciate that. Thirdly, the book was a fast read and the characters were well developed in a short time. I would recommend this book to anyone.
A mother (Jen) has just gone through a divorce that her now ex-husband filed for because he decided that he'd rather be with the children's nanny. The book focuses on Jen trying to put her life back together after the divorce. The one constant that I did notice throughout the entire book was references to God and having a personal relationship with Him.
While many might want to overlook this book because of the funeral home setting, I appreciated how the setting gave me a new way to look at showing God's love by preparing people's bodies for their burial. Everything that goes into a funeral is done for the living. Showing God's love through death to those that are still living. As a Christian I know that death is not the end, but a new beginning.
Angela Hunt did an amazing job with this book. Although this books main theme was in reference to God in our lives - at no point was it being shoved down the readers throat. Instead, it was a constant theme that tied the whole story together. It allowed the reader to see how God's love is reflected in us showing others love, in forgiving others, and in loving ourselves.
Prayer was also a constant point. God answers our prayers in His time and in His way. The main character, Jen, discovers that God always answers our prayers...just not always the way we want Him to.
I would suggest that you get a cup of tea, a box of Kleenex, and find a comfy spot to curl up and read. You WILL enjoy this book and find yourself wanting to know even more about Jen and her boys by the end. I was SO happy to see that this book was the first in a series! I can't wait to read the rest of it now.
