About The Book
A redemptive story from multi-platinum recording artist Sara Evans.
Jade Fitzgerald left the pain of her past in the dust when she headed out for college a decade ago. Now she’s thriving in her career and glowing in the light of Max Benson’s love.
But then Jade’s hippie mother, Beryl Hill, arrives in Whisper Hollow, Tennessee, for Jade’s wedding along with Willow, her wild younger sister. Their arrival forces Jade to throw open the dark closets of her past–the insecurity of living with a restless, wandering mother, the silence of her absent father, and the heartipping pain of first-love’s rejection.
Turns out Beryl has a secret of her own. She needs reconciliation with her oldest daughter before illness takes her life. In the final days leading to the wedding, Jade meets the One who shows her that the past has no hold on her future. With a little grace, they’ll meet in the middle, maybe even before that sweet by and by.
My Take On The Book
Though I am a man and I am reviewing this book, I will say that the book is somewhat geared more toward a female audience. Though saying this, the authors did do a good job at building the storyline and characters, and as a reader you truly are drawn into the book itself.
You find yourself relating to the relationship and familial issues that the story brings up and through the authors’ vivid imagery, you begin rooting for the characters and hoping that all will work out in the end.
The book does evoke emotion from its’ readers as well, and if you are a person who likes to have their heart tugged at, this book will accomplish it as well.
For most of my male readers, this book may be a bit to feminine for you, but I am proud to say that I read it, and I will probably pass the book on to my eldest daughter as she gets older, as it is a story that does relate some strong messages.
