Overview

Just a Little Faith by Amy J Norris

An opportunity for love and a challenge of faith. Paxson Taylor’s recent relocation to St. Louis leads her to a life different from what she’s experienced in the past. Through her work with a small charity, she meets and attracts the attention of professional baseball player, Sebastian Quinn. Flattered, Pax tempers her desire for the handsome playboy with her need to serve her God—a God Seb doesn’t believe exists. Through unspeakable tragedy, they grow closer and with disappointment, drift apart. How can two people from opposite ends of the faith spectrum reconnect when they need each other most?

About the Author

An avid reader since she first recognized the letters "C-A-T," Amy J. Norris dreamed of writing her own books which not only provided opportunities for readers to enjoy romance but also tug at their heartstrings through the tragedies we all face. A resident of Huntsville, Alabama, Amy works for one of the hundred government contractors in the area. Amy also spends her Monday nights singing with a not-so-local chapter of the Sweet Adelines International organization, the TuneTown Show Chorus, out of Nashville, Tennessee.

When she's not working or singing or reading or writing, Amy can be found refining her talents as the best sports fan in the world. She loves rooting for the Crimson Tide of Alabama and the St. Louis Cardinals and has been known to be enthralled with almost any sport, even the crazy Canadian sport of curling. Her primary goal is to get to Heaven to spend an eternity with our Lord and be reunited with family and friends who have gone on before, especially her Dad and Pepaw who instilled in her a love of writing in the first place.

Reviewed by Amie Lou Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I was really excited to sit down with this book. A Christian romance about a baseball player? What’s not to love? But as I started to read, I had mixed reactions. First of all, I had a little trouble with their names. I’m not sure why; they just didn’t seem to fit the characters. It’s not a big deal or a deal breaker for me. I’ve read books like that before, but I did find it a bit distracting. Another problem I had was with their dialogue. I found most of the conversations between the characters to be stiff and forced. Filled with phrases and words that most people just don’t use in normal, everyday conversation. Problem or asset remains to be seen about all the sports references. Yes, I know it was about a baseball player, but as a sports lover myself, I know that a lot of readers don’t care two hoots about football championships and who won the last Series. I did however like that the heroine loved the Cardinals (Go, Cards) and that love (almost) overshadowed the references to the University of Alabama. (Sorry, Amy but as an Alabama girl myself, my family is all about War Eagle. If that’s not bad enough, I married an Okie—Boomer Sooner!) But…the book had some amazing redeeming qualities. Take away everything that I felt was distracting and you are left with a story that will tug at your heart strings. Okay, I admit it, I cried like a baby. Amy created tough situations and put her hero through the emotional wringer. The scenes with his tragedy were handled brilliantly. And the realization of faith…Let me say that Amy created a very strong heroine who was not willing to compromise her faith even for a man she desperately loved. But in that unwavering belief, she helped another find his way to God. And in the end, that’s what it is really all about.

Review: "Just a little Faith" by Amy J. Norris was truly one of the best reads that I have truly romantic read in a very long time. This author Ms. Norris did s very good job with her storytelling of "Just a little Faith. It was truly a novel of a strong family sense of faith. With all of that just add the humor that I found that this read had and you will find a well written dialogue being very easy to read. Along with a good story comes the wonderful characters...Paxson, Sebastian, Jim, Lincoln, Durango and Tori really made this novel come alive for me. In your read you will see 'Seb and Pax will go through difficult times that will have to be dealt with.' "Just a little Faith" really did drew me in that I wasn't able to put it down until I got to the end finding this read definitely being a 'combination of love, death, struggle, hope and most of all Faith in God.' If you are in for a excellent read "Just a little Faith" and yes I would recommend this wonderful read to you.

As a friend of Amy's I've been waiting expectantly for this book for months. I was not disappointed, which is why it received a rare 5 star rating from me. I started yesterday afternoon, ready for an evening "get-away." I read for several hours, though it seemed like minutes. I took a break to watch TV with my husband. Later as he drifted off to sleep, I opened my kindle and began where I had left off. The next time I looked at the clock it was thirty minutes past my bedtime. I put down the book with some hesitation, but knew I needed sleep. This morning I woke up and looked at the clock--an hour before I needed to get up, but "Just a Little Faith" was on my mind. I couldn't go back to sleep. I got up and finished this wonderfully written novel before I had to start my day. Now before you think I'm biased, I don't think I am. Not that much anyway. I know a good book when I read one and this is a good book. I wouldn't be posting a review if I didn't think so. I'm not that kind of reviewer. I will tell you about quality stories, and keep silent about the ones I don't care for--notice I didn't say they were bad. A good story is in the eye of the reader. I truly enjoyed "Just a Little Faith." You don't have to enjoy sports to get sucked into this book, though one of the main characters is a pro-baseball player. What you do have to enjoy is a strong helping of romance with an inspirational flare.

This is by far the best book I have read in a long time. Pax, the main character, came alive for me and I fell in love with her. I could not put it down. Seb and Pax go through some very difficult times, all while trying to connect despite both having barriers that must be dealt with. 'Just A Little Faith' touches on some of the most important emotions and questions we must come to terms with, if we are to truly love and be loved

I purchased this book simply because I know the author and I wanted to give her support. I know she has a strong sense of family and is strong in her faith...and a quirky sense of humor...and I like to read. Although I am not the biggest fan of romantic fiction, religious or otherwise, I really, really liked this story. It was well written, easy to read and Amy made the characters come to life for me. I laughed with them, cried with them and found myself saying 'amen' to Paxon's prayers. It was uplifting and encouraging and I think even the males of the species would enjoy the story. Thank you Amy, for your imagination and your faith in yourself and your talents.
