A Time to Love by Katie McCurdy ~ Review

A Time to Love
About the Book: Four years of war, two years of reconstruction…and still her husband is missing.

With the War Between the States over, Leah Williams waits expectedly for her husband’s return. But that never happens. With no word if he’s alive, dead, or simply abandoned her, she struggles to go on. With the mortgage payments due and people pressuring her to remarry, does she have the strength to hold on? Or should she even wait for a man who might never return to her?

With so many unanswered questions, Leah must learn to lean on God implicitly. But will her faith be enough? Will God provide a way?

My Review: I was very honored to be allowed to be a pre-reader of this lovely novelette. Though this story is short in length, don't let that fool you!

 Filled with moments that will make you laugh, smile and cry along with the characters, A Time to Love is a heart-warming tale that you won't be able to resist.

The dialogue in this book was dazzling, in how Ms. McCurdy managed to capture the character's emotions, without a lot of outside description. For me the dialogue was what brought this book popping to life. Another thing that I particularly enjoyed was how well the back story was woven in, at the right moments. And don't let me forget the tension! This story had some great hold-your-breath-till-you-find-out-what-happens moments!

Though I thought all of the characters were well done, my favorite was a fellow named Mark, who part of the supporting cast. I really liked how he genuinely was a good man, and tried his best to help Leah out of a bad situation. I could go on, but I think I should make you read the book to find out :)

Overall, I highly recommend this book. Though it was short in length it had all the elements that make a great read. Great characters and plot. Thanks :)

Final Rating: 5 out of 5

I volunteered to write this review, and this is my honest opinion. I received a copy of this book from the author which may have undergone some changes since I read it, so keep that in mind. But...I think that's all :D Thanks!
