Happy New Year! And boy did I start 2020 off with a bang! I woke up late, and stayed in bed much of the morning of January 1 to finish this marvelous book. While I began The Dearly Beloved by Cara Wall on December 31, I couldn’t wait to continue in 2020. About a quarter in, I wasn’t digging it too much. But right thereafter, I fell in love. It’s a wonderful story of two families, both husbands who became ministers. It’s really the tale of relationships, between humans and between humans and God. But, it’s so much more than that. As anyone who reads this blog knows, I love a family saga and this is a shortened one that was so satisfying that I feel like reading the beginning again because I’m sad I didn’t get into it earlier. I am so glad I stuck with it to declare my first book in the new year as a FIVE STAR book. Grab it – you won’t regret it!
