Last night was another great night of relaxing with the book club girls and chatting up a storm. We all agreed that the book Under a Maui Moon was a light summer read and could have gone a little deeper in the storyline and the character development. Overall, we all enjoyed the book and the message of commitment that it displayed. We chose our next book selection and will be reading Heaven is Here by Stephanie Nielson. Here is a short review of the book by one of my favorite authors/bloggers, Ree Drummond:
- "In Heaven Is Here, Stephanie
chronicles in harrowing detail the unspeakable tragedy that would
forever alter her life. But the real story is this: Through all the
tears, pain, upheaval, sadness, and struggles, it was Stephanie's
faith—and the abundant love of her beautiful family—that brought her
back to life. I recommend this book to anyone who needs a reminder of
just how strong the human spirit is, and how instrumental faith can be
in overcoming what life throws at us."
—Ree Drummond, author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks
Since this book is only available in hardcover, I will be reading it on my iPad. I have this thing where I only like to read books in paperback because reading a hardcover feels like reading a textbook. Anyways, I will be downloading the book this afternoon and enjoying the summer afternoon reading while it lasts... Happy Reading!
