This is the best book of the series so far. While the first two books read very sweet with minimal action, this book had two big wow factors right up front. I have to say it was a very pleasant surprise.
I loved the fact that Lois and Chris faced a whole range of challenges during their first year as husband and wife. I have to admit though my favorite was what they were going to do with Chris' catfish collection.
We got more back ground on several characters and we got to meet Lois family. It was good to see Lois faith growing and Chris helping her with that spiritual growth. Great book. I loved it.
Lois and Chris get married, and before they can even get to their reception, a tornado hits the town and blows away lives, homes--and the Craigs' honeymoon. Lois races to the paper in her wedding gown, thankful that the building is still there even though her house is not. This is a hard year for Lois in Green, but with grace and friends and a very supportive new husband, she survives and even thrives. This and #4 in the series are the best ones so far, though all 5 titles are worth the time and money!
Lois and Chris have their wedding reception at the church interrupted by a tornado. With the town torn apart by the tornado, Green struggles to rebuild and Lois & Chris try to decide what to do about their house that blew away. The newspaper works hard to give the best coverage on the storm & recovery as Lois & Chris forgo their honeymoon and stay in Green to aid in the recovery process. This book showed a community come together in the midst of tragedy.
This is the 3rd book in the Green series by Judy Christie. This series continues to be fun and enjoyable to read. Christie has a great way of keeping you on the edge of your seat always rooting for things to work out in my now beloved town of Green, Louisiana. I don't want to spoil the surprises that are in store with this book, so I will just say, sit back and enjoy The Glory of Green.
I give each book and the whole series a hearty 5 stars.
The Green series by Judy Christie follows the story of Lois,owner of the Green newspaper, but is filled with plenty of other well developed characters who each have their own plot-lines. These books keep the reader hoping. They are fast paced but thoroughly entertaining.
The Glory of Green, book 3 in the Green Series, finds Lois planning her wedding. Things seem to be going well. Her fiance, Chris, has even given his homestead away to a needy Mexican family. Lois' biggest stress seems to be whether she can convince her husband to get rid of his home decor and nick-knacks, which revolve completely around catfish.
Of course things don't stay calm around Lois for long--but even she couldn't have predicted the twister that invites itself to her wedding. With the town in shambles, her home destroyed, and a friend to mourn, Lois and Chris spend their honeymoon picking up the pieces and wondering if this catastrophe will be the end of their beloved Green.
