    I love this novella. My first book I have read by Susan May Warren. Won't be my last. A family orientated story of love, faith, tragedy, new beginnings and hope. Well written with lovable characters.

    A year later after a devastating fire John and Ingrid Christiansen find themselves as empty nesters. A new beginning for them and each of their children. They are dealing with memories of the past, a sick pet and a sick family member. With the holidays coming John plans a surprise trip to Paris for Ingrid as this will be the first Christmas without all the family being together. However due to a number of circumstances they are not able to go. As problems rise with their children and their marriage John wonders why he is unable to fix things.

    Will they be able to heal and find happiness again? Will they trust in God and let Him lead them to the future He has planned for them?

    This book will bring tears to your eyes at times but is a great read. I recommend this book.

    I received a free copy of this novella from bookfun.org for my honest opinion and review.

    The Christiansen family has been such a joy to read. This one was no exception. I like that this novel focused on the matriarch Ingrid Christiansen and patriarch John Christiansen. It is great to see their relationship in a new light. They are at the empty nester stage of life and trying to figure out what to do with their time. John knows that he would like to take Ingrid on a European trip because he knows that something needs to change in their relationship. The cracks in their marriage are revealed through a series of different circumstances. You understand how important communication is between couples and how things not dealt with can fester. You see John trying to fix things and Ingrid just doing things to keep busy. There were some harsh dialogues between them and it made me tear up. You will experience a variety of emotions while reading this book. You see that marriage takes work and that we cannot expect each other to read our minds.

    I loved the name of the book and this quote that explained why the author chose the name.

    Its a miracle how, when an evergreen burns, the pinecones burst open, dropping seeds into fertile soil of the charred land. Saplings now edge our property, sprouts of green against the white landscape.

    In the wake of goodbyes, life endures. Even flourishes. Page 184

    We make not see or understand why things are happening but we have to trust that God is in control. We may see dying as the end but nature has shown us that sometimes it is a new beginning. There are times when we have to let go of our vision for our future and listen to the voice of God directing us.

    I received this book for free from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review. I also posted this review on Amazon, Barnes and Nobles, Goodreads, Deepershopper, etc.)

    I'm not a fan of novellas, but I thought I'd give this one a try. I'm thrilled that I did. Several life lessons are woven in a beautiful short story.

    The characters seem so real, and this book pulled me in from the start. The storyline is a totally believable one...and I venture to say most of us can relate to parts of this story. The story of how two partners in a marriage find that somewhere along the way they lost sight of God and each other. This book was a treat to read.

    "... Our children are destined to leave us from the moment they're born. And the paths they walk are theirs, not ours. We can only give them a place to come home, stop in, find comfort. But we can't walk their journey for them. Eventually they have to stand before God by themselves." Evergreen by Susan May Warren

    Treat yourself to a sweet, but poignant read.

    I received this book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion which I have given.

    Evergreen, written by author Susan May Warren is part of her Christiansen Family Series. It is a winter novella, 208 pages, and comes in 3.5 in her series published by Tyndale House. I had not read the first three books in the series and was afraid I would be lost, but the author did a great job filling in bits and pieces of the back stories. Now I want to read the entire series.

    This book opens with the main characters John and Ingrid Christiansen as they begin their lives as empty nesters. Previously their house was full with six children and now it is just the two of them and their beloved dog, Butterscotch. As in the real world, these two characters have different ideas and plans for the future, and as we all know, God has plans of His own for them in the form of Ingrid's teenage nephew, Romeo.

    The book is insightful as it takes a look at marriage, family problems, strife, disappointment, faith, trust, and holidays. There are more tears than laughter but sadly that happens sometimes in life. Like most families, this one might look perfect from the outside but it is far from it. There are many issues that are unresolved. While it is inspirational it is not preachy. It does stress the importance of trusting God and forgiveness.

    I would definitely recommend this book. It is full of real life issues, husband and wife perspectives, family drama, and has a family pet, which I always enjoy. The main and secondary characters are lovable and relatable. We have been in their shoes or know them. It was interesting and hard to out down. I am looking forward to reading the entire series now.

    I received a copy of this book for my honest opinion through The Book Club Network. I rated it a 5 out of 5 stars.

    I enjoyed reading this novella. I read it in one sitting feeling that if I put it down I may miss something. I feel for this couple John and Ingrid being empty nesters and all the changes that come with it. They are not only dealing with being empty nesters, they are dealing with the pain of a sick pet and loved member of the family. Also ghosts from their past are bringing up sad and painful memories thought lost forever.

    John tries to do something special for Ingrid during the holidays because he knows this will be the first without everyone home. Problem with this plan is that Ingrid other things in mind. John is a fixer and protector and doesn't understand why he is not able to fix the problems in their family as well as their marriage. Then God has other plans for them that totally throws John for a loop. Will they start listening and letting God lead them? Will their family ever be whole again?

    This was my first book by author Susan May Warren and it will not be the last. I am hooked. Thank you for letting me read and review this wonderful book. God Bless
