Some Fun Summer Reading
This summer one of the books our Book Club read was The Sister Circle by Vonette Bright and Nancy Moser. I enjoyed it so much that I read the other three books that are part of the series. I was pleasantly surprised that I liked them so much.
They are the story of a lady, Evelyn, in her early 50's whose husband is unexpectedly killed. He leaves her pretty much penniless except for the big house they have lived in, a house that belonged to his family throughout generations. She decides that in order to make ends meet, she will rent out rooms to borders. This results in a true potpourri of personalities.
I liked these books because they are full of faith and fun. Evelyn doesn't start out as a Christian, a woman of strength, or in charge of her life in any way. But she begins taking baby steps and she grows. And along the way God provides. I enjoyed that the main character was a woman close to my age. And I enjoyed how there were a variety of women of different ages and walks in life involved in the storyline. There is romance, mystery, and dilemna included in each book.
So, if you are looking for some light, yet thought provoking reading for the summer, these books will suit you just fine.
