A Long Time Comin' by Robin W. Pearson





To hear Beatrice Agnew tell it, she entered the world with her mouth tightly shut. Just because she finds out she’s dying doesn’t mean she can’t keep it that way. If any of her children have questions about their daddy and the choices she made after he abandoned them, they’d best take it up with Jesus. There’s no room in Granny B’s house for regrets or hand-holding. Or so she thinks.

Her granddaughter, Evelyn Lester, shows up on Beatrice’s doorstep anyway, burdened with her own secret baggage. Determined to help her Granny B mend fences with her far-flung brood, Evelyn turns her grandmother’s heart and home inside out. Evelyn’s meddling uncovers a tucked-away box of old letters, forcing the two women to wrestle with their past and present pain as they confront the truth Beatrice has worked a lifetime to hide.

About The Author




Robin W. Pearson's writing sprouts from her Southern roots. Her family’s faith, life lessons, and life’s longings all worked together to inspire her debut novel, A LONG TIME COMIN’, which shows how man's timeless love affair with God affects day-to-day relationships. Robin has corrected grammar up and down the East coast, starting with Houghton Mifflin Company, and has since written and edited fiction, magazines, and educational publications. Robin also has been a finalist in ACFW’s Genesis and First Impressions competitions. At the heart of it all abides her love of God and the family He’s given her. It’s her focus as a wife and homeschooling mother of seven. It’s what she writes about on her blog, https://robinwpearson.com/mommy-conce..., where she shares her adventures in faith, family, and freelancing. And it’s the source of all the characters currently living and breathing in the stories waiting to be told about her belief in Jesus Christ and the experiences at her own kitchen sink.  


My Review






A story of family dynamics, end of life, beginning of life, and rebirth, all with eyes on the Agnew family. We get to meet them up close and very personally.
We begin with a story of infidelity, and end up with a funeral, but there is a lot in between, and yes, it is shared with us, and through all the trial the tribulations we see an intense love of the Lord.
Yes, we are all sinners, and here we see some head on, but there are a lot of hardships, and we see a fierce love of a mother here.
I felt a sense of loss when I turned the last page, I wanted more time with this family

I received this book through Edelweiss and the Publisher Tyndale, and was not required to give a positive review.
