I was pleasantly surpr...

I was pleasantly surprised by this Bible study author's first novel. I wasn't sure what to expect but I found a story line that kept my interest, colorful characters, and lots of Southern charm. I could definitely hear Beth's voice - which I was familiar with - in the way the characters used inventive metaphors and similes that are steeped in the author's Southern way of speaking. Since the story was set in New Orleans it is an appropriate touch, as were the details about the food and customs of the region. These all slid into the story easily as the main character, Jillian, has grown up in southern California. She travels to New Orleans to escape her problems and to get to know the grandmother she barely remembers. Jillian definitely feels like a fish out of water when she arrives in New Orleans and is surrounded by a cast of Southern types. She finds shelter at Saint Silvanus - a church turned into a boarding house which her Gradmother Olivia owns and which is managed by the very outspoken Adella. Jillian doesn't find her grandmother waiting for her with open arms when she arrives - quite the opposite - but she slowly gets sucked into the warm family atmosphere that exists among the boarders at Saint Silvanus. She also finds hints about events involving deceased father that she becomes intensely curious about - and that eventually lead her into some perilous circumstances. So the story involves some suspense, some romance, a journey of faith (of course), and a lot of Southern flair. If those sound look good ingredients to you, give it a try!

Beth Moore, better kno...

Beth Moore, better known for her Bible studies, ventured into the world of Christian fiction with this title. Jillian Slater, long estranged from her father and his family, goes to New Orleans to attend his funeral. Her mother depicted her father as a homeless loser. As soon as she landed at the airport, she began regretting her decision to fly there. She discovers her grandmother lives in a renovated old church with an odd assortment of people and a sassy manager. After she goes back to San Francisco and discovers her boyfriend/boss with another woman in his office, she quickly packs, returning to New Orleans. She begins to learn more about her father, her grandmother, and herself during her journey. The book contains a mystery concerning the murder of her father and romance for Jillian. The book is unlikely to gain a wide following outside of Christian readers as it tends to be a bit preachy at times. The story is better than expected. I listened to the audio book read by Shannon McManus who does a terrible job. Her male voices and regional accents were horrible. I recommend reading the book rather than listening to it.
