A Moment of Weakness – Karen Kingsbury

Not my typical style of book to read, but my “book lady” asked me to read it and tell her what I thought. So I did…

This is your classic tale of boy meets girl, boy looses girl, boy meets girl again some 10 years later, boy looses girl AGAIN (thanks to Mommie dearest), boy meets girl again another 10 years down the road they marry and live happily ever after!

OK… maybe there is more to the story than that… it’s actually quite a good story, well written, with characters you love (and a couple you hate). Tanner believed from the time he was 12 years old he would marry Jade.

This is a story of what can happen when we take our eyes of God and His plan. It’s the story of God’s redemptation and as Angela Elwell Hunt summarized on the back cover, this is a story that reminds us that God is the God of second chances. There is almost alway consquences to our actions, but God’s grace is still sufficient.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
