I really enjoyed reading this novel; it kept me entertained from the
beginning to the end. The author’s humor kept me giggling throughout the
pages, and example, he attends a three hour Mennonite wedding and
states, “ They aged right before my eyes.”
While we see hurts on the
surface, there seems to be deeper meaning to all of them. While the book
is full of surprises that you won’t see coming, and happenings that
were impossible, or were they, there is deeper meaning, and they all
seem to be connected, but how?
There are some characters here that
the author has made me love, and would love in my life, and there are
others that are even hard to like, but as we continue in the story,
people are not always as they appear.
I love the setting for this
story, and the major theme is dear to my heart, Veterans, and love how
these town rallies. Come along for a really enjoyable time and good
humor, you won’t want to leave.
I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours and was not required to give a positive review.
