PIECES ON EARTH: A Christian Fiction Christmas Novella - Cathy Bryant


4 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
As a young mother and wife of a naval aviator in sunny Pensacola, Florida, Liv Tulley eagerly anticipates the first Christmas in several years with her husband, daughter, and extended family. Then her husband is unexpectedly deployed for an undetermined amount of time, smashing her white Christmas dreams. She's also shouldering a secret and battling anxiety. Can she find God's peace in the midst of life's pieces?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Amazon best-selling author Cathy Bryant writes Christian fiction set in the heart of Texas. Her popular romance and romantic suspense novels take place in the fictional town of Miller's Creek, where folks are friendly, the iced tea is sweet, and Mama Beth's front porch beckons. Her debut novel, TEXAS ROADS, was a 2009 ACFW Genesis finalist and has been on the Amazon Best-Seller list. Since then five other stand-alone novels have been added to the series, one of which was a reader-nominated 2013 Grace Award nominee (PILGRIMAGE OF PROMISE). Readers have compared her work to that of Karen Kingsbury and Nicholas Sparks.

A native Texan, Cathy has written devotions for The Upper Room devotional magazine, two devotional books, and for online sites. She also has written two Bible studies that correspond with the spiritual themes of Miller's Creek novels. In addition to her writing, she enjoys thrift store shopping and romping in the great outdoors.

MY THOUGHTS -
A very touching, sweet Christian Christmas story! This book stays very Christ centered all throughout, as it should be in a Christmas story.

The story started out kind of slow for me in the first half but definitely got better through the last half and I really started to enjoy it more.

There was good strong character development, a nice clean story-line, with a strong message and a great ending! I can't even imagine celebrating Christmas with your husband overseas and not even knowing if he is alive, especially with a young child.

This was my first by this author and I actually went and downloaded two others from her "Miller's Creek Series". I am looking forward to trying those out as well.

Thanks to the author, Cathy for sending me this novella for my honest review.
