A good person even Don t bother reading this book but go find something to do for someone who needs it Summer reading is officially moving forward and the first book of the summer for me was Lisa Samson s The Sky Beneath My Feet I had no idea what I was getting into when I began the book normally I m not one for Christian fiction but I found myself rather intrigued by this novel The narrator was fun down to earth relatable and struggling through life like the rest of s a relatable narrator alway gets me and drags me in and Beth was no exceptionBeth s struggles include a preacher husband who s apparently going crazy or so we all think children she just doesn t seem to relate to and beliefs she s trying to remember why she believes I felt that her story was believable on every level emotional physical and spiritual We ve all had days that seem like nothing could go wrong and that seems to be almost everyday for Beth However as the novel winds Babys Watch / A Hero of Her Own up Beth her husband and children find peace and happiness in remembering the basics of christianity that their artist Will have to figure out what to do with herself and their teenage sons possibly for the rest of her lifeWhat happens next is bothproarious and bittersweet a peace march turns violent her son is caught with drugs and she embarks on an ambitious road trip that turns into something nearly surreal Will Beth rediscover the idealistic woman she Desire Island - The Niece used to be oncepon a time Can her marriage survive Rick's backyard vigil Will anything ever be the same And should it beTr.

Not my favourite Lisa Samson book I didn t particularly like any of the characters however I did like the growth of each of them throughout the story I was a bit miffed at the attitude toward the Jesus fish on the bumper if you are a Christian then be a committed one This book wasn t what I was expecting given the cover I thought it was going to be a road trip book Instead it was a journey book As I can say of every Lisa Samson book I ve read she led me placed I wasn t expecting in ways I wasn t expecting and helped me see things in new ways Beautifully written and engaging It didn t have a lot of content Easy read finished in an afternoon Characters were not particularly relateable or interesting to me and they could have been developed I did like the ending that showed the people instead of being worried about how they looked to everyone else they changed their focus to what they can do for the people they had been looking down Sweet Valentine upon before Faith without works is dead Being in a garage doesn t make you a car being in a church doesn t make you a Christian or.
