Her new career and new relationship with Oliver hit a snag when the love of her life suddenly sees her as a desirable woman. Should she take a chance on the life she always wanted with Gavin? Her career and her future hang in the balance, but which direction will she choose?
This is a wonderful romantic tale about a young woman finding herself. It is a clean read without scenes that make readers blush and contains insight into faith. Julianne must learn to have faith in herself. Oliver's faith makes her nervous. She learns secrets about the men in her life that make her question her own choices. It's a good read that makes you think.
Like a playwright herself, the author builds her main characters Oliver, Cameron, Gavin, and big brother Michael into a fast-paced, delightful story of relationships, pain and happiness. God's plan for Julianne becomes center stage and her friends become the actors in this story of life. A side story of romance will keep you wondering if Julianne finds her soul-mate...who will be holding her hand at the end of the book, as the curtain rises at The Garner House? Enjoy!
How Julianne handles attraction to two handsome men, her new responsibilities as publicist for the Renaissance Players, and family dynamics is what makes this story a heartwarming read.
This is the first book written by this author. Rebekah Lyn has crafted an enjoyable book highlighting Julianne's search for life's purpose. It is well written, and flows easily from chapter to chapter. It is definitely a character-driven tale which, for the most part, is an easy going moderately paced work of fiction set in modern day Alexandria.
The relationship between Julianne and Oliver is comfortable and predictable. The entire story is a pleasant read. Some may find this novel too static, but I found it cozy and warming. It makes for a good break from books which pump up our adrenaline in suspense. There is a light spiritual element in which Oliver introduces God to Julianne. He lets her know how she can find peace that passes all human understand with Him. Her response is open ended, and Oliver does not apply any pressure. We get the impression, however, that this is just the beginning for her. I found the conclusion soul satisfying.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary review copy of this book from Body and Soul Publishing on behalf of the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
Very well written book and extremely easy read. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because I usually only give book 5 stars if I come back and re-read them over and over again. I don't know that Julianne is a book I would read every year but if I do come back and re-read it several times, I plan on changing my rating to a 5 star.
