I enjoyed this book. It was short and to the point and could be read in one sitting. It held my interest as I wanted to see how each character's story ended. There were some grammatical errors, but not so much as it distracted from my reading enjoyment. I cared about each character. I grew up in the inner city which helped me relate to some of the ridiculousness of a couple of the characters. Some of their behavior was sadly laughable as it is how some people truly behave.
One of the 1 star comments asked "who was rescued?" I believe they all were, each of the three main characters, with the exception of the "Bible Thumper." The one who moved into that building was rescued in the sense that she found her purpose. The young girl was received Christ as her Savior. The young girl's mother as she had an encounter with God that changed her life. The door was left open for the "Bible Thumper" to be rescued as a letter was left for her to read at the end of the story.
The only con to this book was the grammatical errors and words misplaced, but again, it was not enough to distract my reading enjoyable.
It felt rushed. I felt like an outsider looking in. I didn't learn anything about Savannah other than she's saved, which is wonderful, but what else is there to her? There's a lot of commentary, telling me what happened or happening. I wanted to "live" the life with Savannah and her neighbors on those pages, but unfortunately, Ms. Kinney didn't provide that experience. Give me something more than characters causing superficial arguments and trouble. As a reader, I want to be in the middle. Not looking through a window and only getting glimpses of the life in that apartment building.
As for the Kindle formatting, it wasn't that great. Huge spaces between paragraphs. Too much space between lines in paragraphs. Grammar and spelling errors were minor, but one check would get rid of the mistakes.
The story overall could have been interesting, if it was expanded more. The author has great potential, and I hope she keeps going in her writing and publishing endeavors.
Faith is hard to have when all you see is the bottom of the pit. It was nice to read about things that change and not because of something you did. You know it was nothing but God that could have made the change. I triply enjoy the Snow series, the author gives a real life story that leaves you filled with the spirit of all things good.
