    more from this reviewer

    Definitely worth reading

    Faith? This is something that has been missing from Ellen Carlisle’s life ever since she got divorced. She knows it is not her fault yet her husband reminds her it is because of her infertility. Going home to her parents was also not part of her plan but when God puts obstacles in your way you have a home to go too. Even though she is close to her parents there are still secrets in the family and trouble she never expected. Her life has always been to keep faith and hope in God yet lately she is having a hard time to keep that mantra. Everybody in her family expect her to follow God’s path but lately she has been upset with God. All her friends are having children yet somehow God missed her in the motherhood department. She is trying to be thankful but wonders exactly is she supposed to be thankful for.

    This is a first I have read from Sarah Healy for she has started her writing career with a book that speaks in so many ways to her readers. Throughout the book I kept wondering is the author telling her story is it Ellen herself who is coming alive in the book. There are times when the story is first point of view and then third party sometimes making me wonder who exactly is Ellen Carlisle. Here is a woman who feels like she got the short stick in life but actually we are seeing her bloom with God’s love. The moral of the story is basically to never give up on God yet we also see what happens when we lose our path in the life of Ellen. For me it was that with faith anything is possible and for Ellen this is hard for her to understand. My heart broke when she can’t have children yet rejoiced in knowing that she has family who love her no matter the situation they face themselves and a man who wants to give her all the love she deserves. This is definitely a book worth getting for with God anything is possible and Sarah Healy shows us so easily in this book.

    A fun, witty and candid must read!

    This book was so funny, witty and candid - I couldn't put it down! While I was laughing out loud and shaking my head, it was also thought provoking and relatable.

    You definitely need to have a good heart full of sense of humor to read this book.

    Ellen's life falls apart in a matter of what feels like mere minutes - her husband wants a divorce, she loses her job and has to move back home to live with her overbearing Christian parents.
    Ellen goes through some entertaining and sometimes scary ups and downs while trying to figure out who she is and what she wants to do.
    And then she meets Mark - a handsome mysterious stranger who saves her one night and left quite an impression on her.

    Will she find get her answer?

    Totally unpredictable, it was such an enjoyable read!
    It is definitely worth the quick read to find out!
