In the past I have not enjoyed Debbie Macomber’s books and I know written a review that did not reflect positively at all. One of my followers, stood up for Ms. Macomber and pleaded with me to give her another chance. A few weeks ago, I found myself desperate for another ‘light’ book to read, this was one of the few available, so I thought I’d give it a chance. I have to say, I really loved it! I was very surprised, and grateful for the uplifting story shared.
I thought in this particular book, her writing was very good. The characters were believable, and lovable, and well formed. I loved that despite the heartbreak and tragedy in the main characters own life, she moves on with life and doesn’t let it beat her. She finds a way to serve and love those other broken souls around her, and vows that everyone who comes through her life, leaves a little bit more healed. I love that.
I really enjoyed this one, and I’m planning on giving some of her other books a chance too. Maybe on the other one, I was in a funk, and projected my own issues.
