bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very Well-Written and Story will captivate youAugust 27, 2014bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5All Right Here is a heartwarming tale about the Darling family. Ivy and Nick have been married for several years and their marriage is not as it seems. Ivy is unable to have children and her husband resents her for it and treats her coldly due to his resentment. Ivy feels responsible for not being able to give her husband children but tries to make the most of her situation. Then, one of their neighbors abandons her three children and the Darlings take them in for what they believe is only a few days. However, the few days turns into months as the neglectful mother is not easily found. While Ivy falls in love with the children, who have never had a stable life and good family, Nick refuses to become emotionally attached because they are not his children. As the children and Ivy grow closer, it becomes apparent to Nick that Ivys attitude grows colder towards him and for the first time, he realizes that he loves his wife and has room in his heart for the children. But, is it too late for Nick to rekindle the love of his wife and save his marriage? Will Nick be able to gain custody of the three children? I found this book to be very well-written and the characters, especially the children, to be likeable. This is a beautiful story about forgiveness and redemption.
jojosutiscornerAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5NEW FAVE FICTION FAMILY!August 13, 2014jojosutiscornerAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5How do you define family? What makes a family - a family?
In Carre Armstrong Gardners "All Right Here", the author explores this topic through the lens of fiction.
Meet the Darlings...they aren't your typical family.
I loves immersing myself in the lives of these characters. I cried with them, laughed with them and cheered for them.
This book evoked so many emotions in me as I read...definitely will want to keep the tissues close at hand for this one!
I cannot wait for more books in this series!!!
I think fans of Karen Kingsbury (Baxter family) and Susan May Warren (Christiansen series) will want to check out this one!!!
callieghCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Good StartAugust 12, 2014callieghCharlotte, NCAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ivy and Nick have been married for six year. Being unable to conceive children has put a strain on their marriage. Enter the three abandoned children from next door and a family is born.
Ivy and Nick agree to care fro the children for a few days until other arrangements can be made. As days become weeks, weeks become months, Ivy and Nick realize that they are officially foster parents. But while Ivy's attachment to the children grows, the only thing growing on Nick is his attitude against Ivy and his marriage. It is not until Nick realizes that he may loose everything that he finally sees the light..
This book brings to light the complex issues of infertility, foster parenting, interracial families, foster parenting and in-law issues. While the book does cover these well, there were parts that were somewhat unrealistic. While maybe because their abandonment from their mother, most children in the foster care system do not accept the situation as easily. Seeing the development of characters was interesting. As first Nick seemed a little shallow and uncaring but like most when faced with a situation, he came through in the end. I will await the next in the series in order to continue on the journey.
I received this book through bookfun.org in exchange for my honest opinion. Thank you!
FranNorfolk, VAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Loved the storyAugust 11, 2014FranNorfolk, VAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ivy and Nick have always wanted children, but Ivy has found that she is unable to get pregnant. And Nick is beginning to resent her for the choice she made in the past.
Then one day when arriving home, Ivy sees the next door neighbors children sitting on the porch, locked out of their home. They have no idea where their mother is. So Ivy invites them to her house to get cleaned up and to eat. Life for the Darling family is about to change in ways that Ivy and Nick could never imagine.
All Right Here by Carre Armstrong Gardner is a wonderful Christian novel. As you read, you feel as though you are a part of the family, sharing their many trials and watching as God sees them through each one. The story shows how God always gives you the things you need, and does it in ways you would never suspect.
I did receive a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
