I couldnt put the book down once i started it...the book deals with very serious issues we see everyday. It got me thinking about my life, priorities and ME. Forgiveness, the need to let go of the past and constantly rediscovering yourself cannot be overemphasised. Most importantly, it reconfirms you must have God to know peace and be content with life. A must read!!!God bless you Stacey.
This is a book that has a lot of edgy topics throughout. It's not very often that so many heavy subjects throw together in one story and work out as well as it did here. There's adultery, alcoholism, and cancer, just to name a few topics. The book blends all these subjects together yet it doesn't feel like it's too heavy to read. The characters are, while not all likable, very realistic and could be someone you knew. This book was very unique that it's a Christian fiction book and involves a woman who has divorced and remarried. Her current husband is distant from her and has been having an affair. Meanwhile Rachelle has reconnected with her first husband who she left for her own selfish reasons even though he did absolutely nothing wrong. It was interesting to see theinteractions Rachelle had with the two men. The reader really feels for Rachelle's first husband Troy as opposed to Rachelle's current husband Gabe. Even though he starts trying to redeem himself, it's hard to like him when you learn about the reasons of why Rachelle's first marriage broke up. While it's a Christian fiction book, it is not preachy. You never feel as if a message is being pushed into your face while you're reading.This was the first book that I've read by Stacy Adams and I enjoyed it very much. One thing I found that I liked about this book was that even though this book was by an African American author, I found that I could relate to the story. I do enjoy multi-cultural fiction because I get to learn about other cultures and customs that are not familiar to me. However sometimes it's also nice to just read about characters and just read about them for who they are and focus more on the story. Either way, I definitely will be reading more books by this author as well as the remaining books in this series.
This book was AWESOME!!! So real!!! Makes you really think about your life & how you want to spend the rest of it. I've been thinking on writing my own life list in hopes to carry each one through according to God's Will & way. I certainly recommend this book to others to read & share. It will make you aware of the trues meaning of your life & those you share it with.
