Things Worth Remembering GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to Surge for winning. Winner chosen randomly.




About the Book (taken from the Bethany House website)
An Emotionally Gripping Story of Broken Relationships Restored
Kendy Laswell and her daughter, Maisey, used to do everything together--until one fateful summer when Maisey witnessed something she shouldn't have, and their relationship fractured. Now, Maisey is back home to get married and Kendy realizes this is her last chance to reconnect with her daughter. Will Kendy and Maisey be able to reclaim the bond they once shared?
Maisey asked for a bride doll the Christmas she was five, mesmerized by her aunt's wedding the fall before. Since then I've been dreaming of the day, or days, we would shop for her wedding dress. A mother helping her daughter find just the right creation for that momentous walk down the aisle strikes me as one of life's happiest endeavors. The night she called to tell us she'd bought her "dream of a gown," I sat beside Luke on the couch, a striking contrast to Maisey's exuberance.
My dejection seemed a tad inappropriate. "Being hurt because I wasn't included is silly, isn't it?" I asked.
"Not so silly," he said.
Will I ever quit longing for the Maisey who was once mine?
Jackina (pronounced with a long “i” to rhyme with China) Stark recently retired from teaching English at Ozark Christian College to spend more time writing and traveling. During the twenty-eight years she taught at OCC, she traveled nationally and internationally to speak and teach, and wrote many articles for denominational magazines. She has been married to her husband, Tony, for forty-two years. They live in Carl Junction, Missouri, and have two daughters and six grandchildren.

Thanks so much to Bethany House for sending me this book to review.

MY REVIEW

There are some very good life lessons in this story about the dangers of refusing to forgive. I was drawn into the storyline and enjoyed Stark's writing. I appreciated that the story was written from both the mother's and the daughter's perspectives. Christian fiction lovers will enjoy Things Worth Remembering.
