I really enjoyed this book! Eventide is the third book in "The Days Of Redemption" trilogy, and it made a wonderful conclusion. I read the second book in this series, but not the first (not because I didn't want to, but because I didn't have the opportunity). I'm really impressed with this author, and I hope to read more of her books in the future.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Elsie Keim has been slowly going blind since she was twelve years old. Ever since her diagnosis her family has treated her like she was incapable of doing anything for herself, and she refused to be treated like an invalid her whole life. She knew that the chances of her ever finding a man willing to marry her was slim, and she had accepted her fate as God's will. She was perfectly happy helping out around her parent's house, (at least she would be if her family would stop butting into her business). It honestly feels like getting through every day was a chore due to the hovering of her parents and siblings.
Landon is a hardworking man that knows what he wants, and he will do his very best to get it. He has a set plan for his life, and in that plan falls a wife that can keep house while he is away on long business trips and care for any children that they might have. The last thing he needs is a woman that he will have to look after like a child.
Landon is in denial, and Elsie is fully confident of her own abilities despite her eye disease. These two clash and come together at the same time. Even when there is an apparent solution to their problems, Elsie turns it down. What is wrong with this woman? She is independent, and stubborn. How will God finish their story if one of them is always running away from the other?
I loved this book. It made a wonderful weekend read, and I would recommend this book to someone looking for a good, light read to take with them on vacation or something. It isn't long, so it won't take long to read, plus it's pretty fast pace.

Eventide is the last book in the Days of Redemption series and does a very good job of wrapping up the series as a whole. I felt so bad for Elsie throughout this book. Even though she is a strong women I felt as her struggles with her illness were sad as well as the the way her family felt about her illness and all she wants is to be normal, have a man love her and have a family. I feel Shelley did such a great job developing this character that you can't help but love her. This whole story is full of so many emotions but such a good read that you will read it all in one weekend. I think you should check out the whole series and connect with each of the characters and don't forget to check out the bonus pages in the back of the book.Was this review helpful?
