Overview

Most girls dream of their wedding days. Except me. I'm too busy practicing piano and being the live soundtrack for everyone else's weddings to think about my own. I've survived most of my twenties with harmonious chords and pleasant days. So why is it that now, at twenty-seven, a discordant feeling presents itself?

Is there a solid solution to loneliness when there is absolutely no potential husband on the horizon?

This is my new favorite from Tero. You can tell her heart and soul was poured out onto these pages. So many women struggle with being long-term single. And that’s what it is to most of them: A struggle. But Tero brought a light, fun, yet honest approach to the subject and she laid bare the ups and downs of the life of a single. She also brought the focus back to Christ in a way that I know will touch the hearts of many. Rating and Recommendation: I give it 5 stars and recommend it to Christian women or young women. ~ I received a copy from the author. I was not compensated for this review or required to give a favorable one. All thoughts are my own.

This was a book that I was honoured to have beta-read months ago — and I re-read it just prior to it's release. It is a book that I can say with confidence that every young lady should read through at least once. I tend to approach books about singleness with trepidation — in almost every single book I’ve read on the topic, it seems as if the girl pines away, waiting for her Prince Charming to happen along and rescue her from her life of drudgery. And then one of two things happen. She either becomes content in her singleness, and is “rewarded” by a husband, or she decides she really doesn’t want to marry anyways, and looks at any guy who seeks to pursue her as a hindrance to the plans she’s made for herself. In any case, girls meets guy and live a perfectly happy life together. End of story. But this book by Amanda totally blew me away and I was *so* happy that I was able to read it. This is not your typical book about singleness — this is a very solid book about a girl who is in her late 20’s, not married, knows no one who she would even think about marrying (seem familiar?), and is suddenly surrounded by friends and family members who are in relationships, engaged, or married already. And the rhetoric and the comments and the snide remarks that ensue are so typical, so ordinary, so very relatable, that I almost laughed in some spots — because I have been that girl. No, I’m not as old as the heroine in this book, but I *almost* am. And the older I get, the more people feel at liberty to comment about my relationship status. (For laughs, you can read THIS POST where I was bombarded with advice . . . :D) I enjoyed reading Stephanie’s response to the questions and the graciousness with which she answered them. The way Steph handles the emotions and the loneliness that sometimes bombards us who are single was refreshing. She handles it by turning to God’s word, studying scripture. The thoughts that are shared throughout this book were so encouraging, so helpful, and so inspiring. Instead of turning to a youth group, romance novels, or something else, she turns to scripture reading, journaling, praying, and serving others through her music. And, may I just say, that all the references to music were just icing on the cake? ‘Tis So Sweet was already a favourite hymn of mine (yes, I have several “favourite” hymns!) and the inclusion of it was absolutely perfect! One reason this book was so relatable and meaningful was because it was written by a young lady who is single — and content in her singleness. It would not have meant so much if it was written by a young lady who was already married. The way Amanda poured her heart into this book was so clearly seen, and I appreciated her honesty in sharing her heart with us in this way. This book is absolutely wonderful. I think that this book would be helpful for every girl out there — no matter how old or how young. I think this book could minister to so many girls, and the truths gleaned from it could essentially be life changing for those who are struggling with discontentment. I am certain that I will be reading this book again — and the best part is that this book isn’t very long. You can read it through in an afternoon, or before bed, and it would be the perfect length!

I loved many things about this novella-length story. Stephanie is a 27 year old single young lady who has played the piano for many weddings but has no prospects for a wedding of her own. Most of the time she’s content with her single life, but when her best friend, her cousin Caiden, finds a girl with whom he’s ready to enter into a serious relationship, Stephanie finds herself struggling with being single. I loved how we hear from Stephanie herself all throughout this book. She communicates very well what it’s truly like to be a single Christian woman watching her friends, some of them younger, get married while she’s still waiting. I loved how the author shared some of her own journal entries so we can see Stephanie’s spiritual journey as she seeks to find peace and contentment in the place that God has for her. And I loved that this story did not end the way the reader might think that it will. Whether we’re married or single, we all have either faced or will face times of waiting in God in a situation and wanting to see answers to our prayers. There’s some great counsel in this book about those times. Amanda Turo is a good author, and this story is both entertaining and encouraging. I’m looking forward to reading more of her stories. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
