In the mood for some fun tales filled with heart and soul and a sprinkle of God's doing. Meet Eveleyn Peerbaugh , her husband Aaron has just recently passed away and she has discovered that he has only left her with $10,000 to survive on. At 56yrs old Evelyn has never had a job and wouldn't know where to start, in fear of losing her home which had been in her husband's family for generations -she is inspired with an idea to turn the three extra bedrooms into a boarding house . So Evelyn, unsure on how to attract customers nails a sign on her porch and leaves it up to God's will. Within the first 5 hours of having her sign up, all three rooms will be filled. First up is Mae Fitzpatrick, a free spirited divorcee and a barrell of laughs , next up is Tessa aka Tessie - she is one of those full-on religious nuts and an academic and lastly single mother Audra and her five year old daughter Summer. Over the course of the novel , we read and discover the true meaning of sisterhood as the four women get up to mischief , have heated arguments which result in the silent treatment and share their stories and tales of how they ended up where they are today - all sitting round the dining table in Evelyn Peerbaugh's dining room.
The Sister Circle is a book that will have you feeling a variety of emotions as we experience the loss of family and the gaining of new ones though they may not be blood-related.
This is the first book in a series of four. I highly recommend all four. Vonette Bright and Nancy Moser are a great team that bring a good plot, christian values, humor and scripture to highlight each chapter. I was sorry to finish the series because I developed a fondness for all the main characters. Their lives and beliefs are not static but ever growing as each of us should be if Christ is the center of our lives
This whole series was so good I couldn't put the book down...so good I purchased the set to give a friend in Missouri for Christmas and I will share my set with other friends. I highly recommend all four books and wish there were more to come. I have enjoyed other books of Nancy Moser's...very good author.
