I’m past due for a book review!

Life has been so busy in Scrivnerburg the last few months that I have not even had time to post a review of the most recent book I received from WaterBrook Multnomah. The book, which is the first fiction book I’ve reviewed, is called Lilies in Moonlight, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Okay – that’s not much of a review, so let me give you a little more detail.

Lilies in Moonlight is by Allison Pittman. Ms. Pittman captured my attention immediately with a struggling but spirited young woman determined to make her way in the world. Although the book was set in the 1920’s, I really felt like I connected with Lilly, the main character, from the beginning. That doesn’t happen often. Lilly was living the life of the world – poor choices and all – before she was taken in by a Christian family. As she dealt with the idiosyncrasies of this family, she came to seek her peace in God. Lilies in Moonlight is very definitely Christian fiction, but it doesn’t have a syrupy, smarmy gospel message. The characters are portrayed as typical, flawed people who learn through their mistakes. I loved that aspect of the story – the people came across as real, as did their faith in God.

If you enjoy Christian fiction, or even if you don’t, I recommend this book for some fun summer reading. It will take you on a joyful journey!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.

Sounds wonderful! I think I'll add it to my basket. If you enjoy Christian fiction I highly recommend Lauraine Snelling's Red River of the North series. I think the first one is titled "An Untamed Land". I read them all a few years ago and thoroughly enjoyed them!
