I just finished the series of "Women of Valley View" Read PAM first and liked it so checked to see if there were others in this series. I had gotten Pam free. Found Callie was free also. Checked the others out and decided to order the other four books because I enjoyed the one I had read. Was not disappointed in any of the books. The stories to me are about how we allow God to work in our lives. I like to read books by Christian authors and I will read more of her books.

Tremendous plots that I couldn't put down! A frequent reminder of God's faithfulness in any situation.

Karla, although the sixth and apparently final book in Sharon Srock’s Women of Valley View series, it is easily read as a stand alone. A story of sorrow and grief, a story of recovery and restoration, and a story of closure and new beginnings. Karla, a widow for just twelve months, still grieving and a shadow of her former self has a chance meeting with Ian, a widower for a year and beginning to sense the need to deal with his loneliness. Both were happily married for forty-plus years, both have a strong faith in God and both have adult children who have varied feelings regarding their parents being in the dating game again. Will Karla and Ian’s growing affection for each other be secure enough to stand against feelings of spousal betrayal, angry children and other barriers that emerge in this budding relationship? Along with the romance, there is the continuing story of a group of long time friends who bring comfort, wisdom, and fun into each other’s lives. A sweet kitten and emergency shopping sprees and makeover sessions bring delight into the story. Throughout the novel, there is a solid theme of a loving, caring God who is at work in the characters’ lives. Karla is a charming inspirational book which will make readers want to go back to the beginning of the series to find out the story behind each of these friends’ lives.

Karla by Sharon Srock Women of the Valley Series Book Six Karla Black's life changed in a blink of the eye. A year later she was half the woman she had been. Physically, mentally, and spiritually. Just when a tiny glimpse of light lit her world, her daughter's world exploded. The pieces landing in Karla's life and pulling her back again. Ian McAlister's wife had told him to love again after she passed away. A year later he found that he was lonely. A kitten helped some, but not like having someone to talk with. To go out to dinner with. And then he met Karla and saw a new path for his life...it wasn't a smooth and easy path though. These stories are very real life and not always pretty. They have romance in them but also hurt, sadness, real life, and death. I've really enjoyed reading this series. **Tissue alert

The Woman of Valley View series has become near and dear to my heart. I have laughed and cried with these friends both old and new. Karla's story just endured these men, women, and families even more. Both Karla's and Ian' worlds were changed on the same fateful night. Both reeling from the loss of their spouses of almost half a century, each must find a new path. Karla feels that she has lost her identity. Ian struggles to keep a promise. A chance meeting in an unusual location brings these two lost souls together. Will their grief or family members keep them separate? Or will God's plans be realized before it is too late? I really enjoyed reading about Karla and her family. I mourned the loss of Mitch as I watched Karla grieve. Seeing Karla's character develop into the strong woman she becomes was inspiring. Watching Ian and Karla explore this unexpected romance was sweet. This whole series makes me want to have a support system such as these women and the men who cherish and support them.

Karla is the sixth installment from the wonderful Women of Valley View series. This series just doesn't get old and sad to see it end. I love every one an Karla is no exception. This heartbreaking story will bring a reader to tears but will, also bring the to see the beauty of faith, love, hope, and the special of true friendships. I would highly recommend this conclusion of this wonderful series. 5 plus stars.
