MichelleAustraliaAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Love LiftedOctober 15, 2012MichelleAustraliaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3When I saw this book on the Booksneeze site, a few things intrigued me_ Sara and I have the same last name J and the Sara is a singer/song writer - I had high expectations.
Love Lifted Me was well written and the story flowed well. The themes of forgiveness and letting the past go were strong and mostly well developed through the book.
I wasn't expecting the American Football storyline to be quite as involved as it was. Unfortunately, I don't understand the game and found myself skimming pages at a time when â€˜plays' or â€˜positions' were detailed in technical terms.
Another thread which many readers will love is one of vintage clothing. I'm not into vintage and again, I felt lost in detailed prose.
Despite my getting lost a few times, I did find the ending satisfying. Overall, this was an enjoyable book.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneezeÂ®.com <http://BookSneezeÂ®.com> book review bloggers program.
