What a refreshing story!
on January 12, 2014
Amidst so much that's wrong in the world (and in literature), it was refreshing to finally read this book that had been resting in my Kindle for 2 years or more.
The Someday List is the story of Rachelle and her journey of discovery, realizing her future, and reconciling her past. She is a woman in need of healing and self-acceptance and a seat (so she'll stop running!). We meet her when she is at a crossroads and dealing with relationship issues with her husband, her parents, and her first love. This story tackles marriage, parent-child relationships, alcohol abuse, purpose/career paths, and most importantly faith.
Stacy has a way of telling a story with just enough detail to make you feel like you're there, talking with the characters. Stacy has a way of developing characters and revealing their back stories slowly and thoughtfully - rather than just blabbing it all. Stacy has a way of literally unfolding a message (or two) in a story in very intentional, yet pressure-less ways.
One of the main drawbacks to this novel were the quickened pace at the end - I felt it ended abruptly and far too neatly. I can deal with this because I know the story continues and I'm sure there is more to explore.
I loved this one and can't wait for Book 2. Bravo, Stacy!
