I enjoy Lisa’s writing style, character development, unique story lines and the fact that there is always personal growth, reconciliation and redemption in her novels. Lisa always finds an interesting premise, location or historical reference that leads me to do further research on the topic presented. I also like that her books are written in series which gives me an opportunity to get to know the characters better as the story lines develop and to see how they are progressing or what they are up to once they aren’t the focal point of the current story.
While I don’t always like the personalities of the characters (I’m sure that’s Lisa’s intent) at the onset, I do grow to love them and understand and appreciate their individual challenges and personalities as the story unfolds. I have sometimes felt uncomfortable as I was being taught lessons I needed to learn about how others might be challenged or struggling in their lives and the scenarios are realistic enough that you can certainly apply them to real life situations. At the end of the book, I am always loath to leave them and feel as if they are real people that I’ve grown to know and care about.
I have been inspired by Lisa’s wisdom, challenged to become a better person, laughed, cried and fallen in love with the people and localities she writes about.
I feel I am a better person for having read these books and always appreciate the measure of grace she brings to her writing. Each book leaves a great impression on me and my heart is full for a long time after the last page is turned.
It is important to me that Lisa somehow manages to do all of this without feeling the need to use graphic language or sex scenes as I do not find that these add anything to a story.
Don’t think that her books aren’t entertaining! Lisa adds wit to go along with the wisdom! There is always a little bit of romance, too!
I hope you will take the time to pick up one of Lisa’s books. You won’t be disappointed.
The story of each characters personal convictions and how that affects their viewpoint and actions; the role of family and its many facets, mother-daughter relationship, the bond and breach that can develop between sister, ones faith and how it is utilized by each character, change of life situations and focus, the female bond, and so many other topics are examined on this book.
Set on the Outer Banks for most of it, this is a heartwarming and wonderful story of three women who all have different issues and focuses going on in their lives, yet come together during a Hurricane which proves to be a time of growth, awakening, better understanding, as well as a time for letting go and acceptance of each other's issues but also of personal issues each one is facing.
An incredibly well-written and moving book that you can't put down. The prelude to the "Prayer Box," hit its own A+++ mark. You will not be disappointed. Another hit from an amazing author who seems to genuinely love her characters and their story and lets it shine through from page one...
I really enjoyed this book! It is a short novella that I read in about 2 hours.
Elizabeth is a 911 operator and she is suffering with guilt about a call that went terribly wrong. On top of that her children are almost grown and will probably be going their on way soon, and she is left to wonder what she will do with her life then. She and her husband haven't been to close lately and she hates to ask him if he is having an affair, because right now she doesn't want to know the answer.
Elizabeth is sleep deprived and getting some much needed rest when her mother pops in and wants her to drive to Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina with her. The mission is to talk some sense into her aunt Sandy, and make her come home. To top it off there is a hurricane that is due to reach Hatteras Island in less that 24 hours.
This book while being short, only 86 pages, was not short on anything else. The author did a beautiful job of letting her readers know the characters in such a short time. Three generations of women come together and help each other physically and mentally. Reading this book felt healing to me somehow.
