I wanted to read this book because I thought I could relate to it in a more personal way. I enjoy reading books where the lost child now adult discovers the lost parents or vise versa. This speaks true in my own life and I just met my birth father and family this year. That being said I'm sure my opinions on this book would be different if my own experiences were different. I love the idea of Laney finding out where her family was because of a quilt. I love that she goes to Hawaii to meet them and answer all of her questions. These are all great things that add to the story. I just didn't like how overly dramatic everyone was throughout the book and I didn't enjoy the romance. The book moves quickly in every way and I was disappointed with the characters and the plot. I wish I could say it was great but it simply is not. I'm sure others will enjoy this read, but I can't honestly recommend it.
"I received this book from CFBA for free in exchange for an honest review."
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I am a wife and mother. My husband and I have two daughters and make our home in the beautiful state of North Carolina.
I am a teacher. With a Master’s degree in history, I have taught at the university, high school and middle school levels. After years of church involvement as a soloist, choir member and worship leader, I also teach music.
I am a writer. Delighted by the rhythm and musicality of words, I have been writing since childhood. In 2001, I won the Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) Story Writing Contest that re-ignited a lifelong love of writing.
I am on a journey of faith. My ultimate desire through my life and my writing is to proclaim the truth of God’s Word, His redeeming love as seen in the life of Jesus Christ and to help others know for themselves this great, awesome God of all comfort and wisdom. He is enough for every need.
