This is the third book of Pittman’s that I’ve read and I have to say it is my favorite! Although I usually don’t like books that go back and forth in time, this one didn’t bother me because the flashbacks were directly tied to the present happenings. Pittman did a good job setting up the flashbacks so they made sense to the story line.
The characters are very well-written. Lynnie as a young girl is believable with her desires to experience new things at odds with family obligations and expectations. I love the way she is able to maintain her integrity while tasting her dream. I was wondering throughout the entire book which pathway she would ultimately choose. I was inspired by Lynnie’s courage in taking risks and in her fiance’s faith for letting her go.
On a side note, there is some humor in the book as well. I loved the fact that Pittman named the church pianist – from Lynnie’s home church with the piano that has three missing keys – Rusty Keyes. I thought it was very funny!
It is a little difficult to write a review about a book I loved as much as this one, so all I can say is to give this book a try. I don’t think you will be disappointed. I highly recommend this book and it is one I will read again and again.
