Book Review - "Desert Gift"
Sally John dives right into the story in her latest novel, "Desert Gift." Marriage expert Jillian Galloway's world is turned upside down when her husband of 24 years tells her he wants a divorce. This announcement is made when she is getting ready to walk out the door to catch a plane to a publicity tour for 5 weeks. Jillian questions herself, her career, everything about her and wonders what she could have done differently. During this difficult time Jillian seeks refuge at her parents' home in the desert and really seeks God during this time and learns more about herself.
If you are looking for a light summer read, this is not it! This book is thought-provoking and will have you thinking about your own life and different twists and turns that may have happened. John has created very real characters and you will empathize, question and grow along with Jillian throughout this book. John's style of writing is easy to get into you and read and you will be hooked on the very first page!
