Bless Your Heart, Rae Sutton by Susannah B. Lewis


When Raeley Ann Sutton’s mama passes away and leaves her the house where she grew up, Rae can’t imagine how the little old place might restore her broken life. Mourning the recent loss of her marriage, she takes the house and settles back in tiny, “one-horse Whitten” with her fourteen-year-old daughter, Molly Margaret, and their overweight dog.

There she’s embraced by her mother’s close-knit circle of friends, the Third Thursday ladies: Mrs. Fannie, Mrs. Dora, and Aunt Maxine. Though almost half their age and far less confident of positive outcomes, Rae joins their ministry-slash-book-club-slash-gossip circle and allows the women to speak wry honesty and witty humor into her tired heart. As a new career and a new romance bring their own complications, Rae relies on the unlikely family she’s found and begins to wonder if her future holds more hope than she ever could have imagined.

Known for her heartwarming stories and genuine Southern voice, Susannah B. Lewis dazzles with her latest story of women strengthening women.

My Review

I really enjoyed this read. A 35 year old woman that has been knocked down, by her husband leaving her for a younger women, and then by loosing her Mom. She is raising her 15 year old, basketball loving daughter, and her family is there for her!

I really enjoyed the humor shown by Rae, especially when she described her husbands girlfriend, she had me laughing out loud, and the mind pictures!

Rae is pulling herself up by her boot straps, but she has the help of family and forever friends, friends of her mothers, those that care about her well being as well as her spiritual health.

We are gifted with some warm Southern hospitality, and small town living! This became a real page turner for me, I had to know how everything turned out!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
