A Lovely First Time Novel!
The author, Rose Ellen Taylor, contacted me asking if I would be interested in reviewing her novel. I said yes because 1) I love to help promote new authors, and 2) I have a soft spot in my heart for self published books.
It took a couple weeks for me to be able to read the book but once I was able to actually sit down and read awhile, I finished it in two days. It is such an inspiring story of a young woman who had been raised by her grandparents in a small town by the ocean and now was going to live with her wealthy uncle's family in the city.
Her faith is tested more by living in luxury than it ever was in the small house of her grandparent's. We meet many characters along the way and wonder if the main character will make the right decision or not. I could not wait to see what happened next.
This is an unapologetic old fashioned and Christ centered story. Along the lines of Grace Livingston Hill and Karen Andreola's novels. It is one of those stories where what the characters are thinking is given a lot of print. Some people don't like this in a novel but I believe it brings us into their world.
I highly recommend this first novel to anyone who is longing for and old fashioned Christ centered story.
Rose Ellen has given me permission to share her email address if you are interested in further details. I think many readers would enjoy it. For teenagers to grandmothers!

Added Note: You can now purchase the book on ebay, too.
