Hot Chocolate In June Book Review


About the Book

Under-qualified and overly-ambitious, Holly left her family and friends behind in Nebraska to search for that radical life, that all-for-Jesus-or-nothing-at-all life. Escaping the depression that chased her following her father's untimely and agonizing death, this young accountant-turned-adventurer trekked to remote mountain villages and through city streets smelling of human excrement: all in search of a Father's love. Thousands of miles from the only home she'd ever known, Holly discovered a deeper passion for her God while sharing the gospel in India and soothing abandoned babies in South Africa. God made sure that Holly also encountered Oscar. This handsome South African rugby player seemed to have everything Holly had been praying for in a husband except for the small detail that he didn't look like any of the other guys she'd dated before.

My Review

I was pretty excited when Holly sent me an email asking if I would read her book. I love reading about people's lives and this book caught my attention. This book is a wonderful read about Holly's life. At times I felt like I was reading my own life story and I really enjoyed the small details. At first I wasn't sure where to the story was headed but as I continued to read I realized how deep this story went into being a believer in Christ. I love how life could have gone differently for Holly, there are a few times in the book where she could have done something different. Instead she followed God's voice and that is how she ended up where she is today! I love the growth in this book and it is really well written. The story flows nicely and makes a great read. 
I highly recommend if you like biographies or reading about radical lives!
