Book Review - "Waiting for Sunrise"

If you read Eva Marie Everson's "Chasing Sunsets," then you must read her latest novel, "Waiting for Sunrise!" We were introduced to Patsy Milstrap in "Chasing Sunsets" and now she is back as the main character in "Waiting for Sunrise."
Patsy and her husband Gil are on their way to Cedar Key for a must-needed vacation, but that is not all that awaits them. The book jumps back in time and we meet Patsy when she is a young girl, reaching the age of adolescence and the difficult decision her mother must make.  Although, this decision was to protect her and Patsy had a good life with people who loved her, she has been unable to come to terms with everything that transpired. This baggage is very much a part of Patsy as she marries and begins a family and throws herself into the role of wife and mother.

This is a well-written novel that is filled with lovable characters, heartache, family struggles and love. I did not want to put this book down once I began reading! I was immediately drawn into the story and the characters' lives. There were so many things going on at once, but yet I never felt lost or confused.  I loved how the author wrote about Patsy and her brothers, their separate lives and then brought the two stories and the characters together.  This is a very touching, emotional book that will leave you crying, smiling and thinking about these characters long after you finish reading!  

“Available June 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
