A Past Revisited

Mercy Come Morning
By:  Lisa Tawn Bergren

Publisher:  WaterBrook Press 
ISBN #: 0307730107
Pages:  240

Lisa Tawn Bergren pens a story of a young woman, Krista, and her relationship with her mother, Charlotte, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.  It is obvious from the beginning of the novel that Krista does not have a close relationship with her mother.  Krista seems very resigned towards her mother and holds much against her.  When she finds out that her mother is close to going home to heaven, Krista makes the reluctant trip to her hometown.  The author proceeds to unravel the mystery behind Krista’s feelings toward her mother as well as allow the audience to follow Krista’s journey into discovering who her mother really was.  Along this journey, you will meet a couple of characters that I found truly endearing, Dane, a childhood friend and beau, and Elena, a confidante and friend.  Christmas is a major theme in this story as it is set as the time of year in which the story takes place.    

This novel is about forgiveness, healing, and relationships.  The story is a bit fast-paced; however, it is still a wonderful read with a great message.

In the comments below, feel free to leave a message on your thoughts on this novel.

Happy Reading  J 

Note:  I have received a free copy of this book from Multnomah Books in exchange for a review.

Craving God!

Made to Crave:  Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food
By:  Lysa TerKeurst

Publisher:  Zondervan
ISBN #:  9780310293262
Pages:  218

Made to Crave is a book that was written to the heart of women who are on the journey of weight loss.  However, this is not your typical weight loss book.  Mrs. TerKeurst writes realistically about the struggles we go through that may cause us to crave the wrong foods and develop unhealthy habits.  The overall message is to develop a closer relationship to God, not the foods that we consume. 

As you journey through this book, you do get the sense that the author has been exactly where you have or are in.  She writes bits and pieces of her own journey throughout each chapter, which I found to be insightful and comforting.  Mrs. TerKeurst writes with honesty along with Scripture that will encourage and enlighten you to the purpose that God has for our lives. 

This book is a great read.  Let me know what you in the comments below.

Happy Reading!  J
