You see Kathleen is now taking the shop to new detail and now you will have to see the story's tail can be said
The description of this novella is a means of introducing the Bradford girls via their father, Garner Bradford. In truth, this novella is about their father and his journey of self discovery via the women he loved, the children he had, the challenges he faces, and working through his many shortcomings...up until he finds the true love of his life while having the unexpected responsibility of turning around the once floundering family business.
The upcoming novels are about each of his daughters as adults.
Garner's story is told through journal entries he has written and phone calls and messages between other characters in the novella. This is an interesting writing style that I have seen work, it does not work with this novella. There were several disjointed posts, some that were not needed at all, and as a writing style it made the characters and novella weak all around. Thus, I had a very hard time sticking with the novella, although I did read it all the way through and with an open mind. I kept thinking it would pull me in at some point...
Perhaps it was simply this writing style, which did not work well with this novella, because overall, I really felt something could have made this a more engaging, interesting, and wonderful novella.
I have heard wonderful things about this authors writing, and not having read anything by her previously, I was hoping this novella would be a good introduction to a new author. I will withhold judgment until I read another book of hers, which I plan to do
I thoroughly enjoyed Wade’s unique approach to writing this novella by using journal entries, phone conversations, letters, and voicemail messages. Garner’s journey through love was told from firsthand accounts adding depth to the struggles of overcoming sin, wading through grief and loss, rebuilding one’s life after tragedy, the awkwardness of early romance, and the deep joy of finding one’s lifetime soul mate. The introduction of Kathleen’s own musings adding a two-sided view of their budding relationship sweetened the plot! Loved this introductory novella and can’t wait to read the entire Bradford Sisters collection!

But this story 10/10. I wonder which one the author wrote first? This story flowed, it made sense, my emotions where touched, I 'felt' his emotions. Nora's story, I finished, and wonder why I felt nothing for the characters. I realize it was how it was written. P.O.V. , First person, Omniscient. Yikes, it was all there but mixed up. Too many voices, too quickly. Too much telling, and not enough showing, so that intelligent mature readers can come to their own conclusions. That's it; this story is for mature grown ups and Nora's for pre-teens. This story was similar in style but completely different. ( See if you can work that sentence out!)
But ive enjoyed this book and i will be getting another one.
