The Someday List - Stacy Hawkins Adams (e-book review)

4 Stars!

What do you do when you realize you're not who you want to be?

Rachelle Covington has it all. A fabulous home, a handsome and successful husband, two beautiful children, and a place in the upper crust that's quite comfortable. But life is not all it's cracked up to be, and Rachelle finds herself yearning for more.

When her husband goes away on a business trip and the kids are sent off to the grandparents for a month, Rachelle heads back to Jubilant, Texas, to visit family and reconnect with her past, her purpose, and herself. But when a blast from the past shows up, Rachelle must confront feelings she thought she'd long buried. Will she give up everything to recover what could have been? Or will she find a reason to plan for the future?

I love it when an author makes you hate the male character, when the husband is a sleazy jerk!  Well this book does it, and within the first 2 chapters too! Unfortunately he does redeem himself in the end, LOL. But not before he gets even more sleazy.
This is a very well written Christian Love story! It is full of marital problems, family support, and God's love!  When Rachelle temporarily leaves her husband to "find herself" I don't think she ever expected to actually find God.
There is some very good advise in this book if you are or are not going through relationship problems. The Author tells you to listen to God and always have Gods plan by your side. It makes us think, as women, what do we want for our lives. And have we put our "stuff" aside for others. Are we living our dream? This book is very inspiring.
This is a very clean, Christian book that I think would be ok for teen readers as well.
