My Thoughts

Emotionally charged, this novel takes you on a delightful journey through past and present as characters recall entertaining and teachable stories and discuss deep topics.  I liked how even though the characters were fictional, the topics of conversation in the novel were very real and applicable to actual life.  Mrs. Kip is spunky and sweet and I really enjoyed reading her tales.  I also love the integration of spiritual truths effortlessly woven into the plot.  An inspirational tale of women’s fiction, this novel will grab your heart and not let go.  I really enjoyed this story and recommend it highly!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Publishing.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
