    Too much, not enough

    Too much thinking and internal debates, but good writing saved the story...to a point. Halfway through, the perspective changed and it went downhill from there. Should have stuck with Celia's point of view and let the reader be there when everything happened! Oh my goodness! We went through everything else! Didn't really care for Bruce's perspective either. Felt cheated by the ending. Review by CherishD

    Very boring.

    To much detail not very interesting story did not have a beginning or and ending as far as I was concerned. It was 500 pages and could have been much shorter and needed more grab and not so much detail of nothing.

    Wonderful Read

    This was an excellent choice for a feel good read. If you need something to take you away from the here and now, this book will do it and each time you have to lay it down, you will be anxiously waiting to pic it back up

    Pride and Predjudice meets the neighbors

    Full of cliches and bible proof texting, this is still a fairly sweet, albeit rather long Christian romance akin to the firgiveness of the prodigal returning home

    Celia Coleman faces the death of her grandmother and having to r

    Celia Coleman faces the death of her grandmother and having to return to her grandmother's hometown for the funeral and to take care of her estate.  Celia's memories of the small Georgia town are not fond but as she spends time with her grandmother's things she's faced with the realization that she must come to terms with her and her grandmother's past.  This includes finding answers to the questions about her grandmother's Christian religion.




    Bruce Healy lives with his sister and must face the ghosts of his promiscuous past as he tries to move forward in his new Christian faith.  As he encounters his next door neighbor Celia, can they find what they have in common or will the memories of their pasts force them to remain alone?




    The first half of the book is told from Celia's point of view and the second half from Bruce's.  This was disconcerting to me as I was not expecting the change in narrator.  Despite that, the novel is captivating and insists that the reader confront any unresolved questions and fears that they have from the past.  




    Publication date: November 1, 2008
    Genre: Christian Fiction, Contemporary
    Setting: South Carolina, Georgia
    Rating: A-
