Love, Charleston

While Contemporary Christian Fiction is not my favorite kind of book, I did enjoy Love, Charleston by Beth Webb Hart. Hart managed to create characters with real depth that grabbed my heart. This is not your typical love story. The characters have plausible issues in their lives, some of which may very well have touched your life also.
Real life drama is what I enjoyed the most about this bookpostpartum depression, marital infidelity. Beth Webb Hart actually went there, she wrote about post partum depression. Lish suffers from it and we see how others react to it, we see her recovery process.

Then there is Della and how her desire to provide for daughter is so very strong that she convinces herself that even infidelity is okay if it gives her a source of security and happiness.

Roy, as a minister begins the story not wanting to be in Charleston at all. But by the end of the book he has fallen in Love also. With the plans of God. Gods ways are greater than are own.

Love, Charleston is a Thomas Nelson Book and was provided for me to review for free in return for my honest, unbiased review. You can review books for free also, join the BookSneeze program. Click the Button on my blog for more info.
