wp-1601669200134.jpgWelcome to my stop on the A Borrowed Life blog tour sponsored by Suzy Approved Book Tours! Thank you to Suzy for the invitation and for the gifted book!

I read and reviewed Every Thing You Are last year.

About the Book:

 From the Amazon Charts bestselling author of Whisper Me This comes an emotional and sharply witty novel about how life’s unexpected detours can ultimately bring you home.

For twenty-six years Liz has perfectly played the part of Mrs. Thomas Lightsey, exemplary pastor’s wife and mother. But maintaining appearances for the congregation and catering to her demanding husband takes a toll, and she’s lost herself in meeting the expectations of others. When Thomas suddenly dies, Liz feels shock, grief, and, to her surprise, the siren song of freedom. Dare she dream of a life to call her own?

Despite the resistance of her daughter, Abigail, to even the smallest changes, Liz lands a role at the community theater. Inspired by new friends and the character she plays, she explores life’s possibilities, including an unexpected—and steamy—relationship with her leading man.

Just when Liz thinks she might be winning, life hits her with an unthinkable shock. She’s pregnant at forty-nine. Torn between conflicting loyalties to her daughter, her lover, her unborn baby, and herself, can Liz find a way to rebuild her dream life one more time?

My Thoughts:

Is this a gorgeous book or what?

Liz has been married for twenty-six years, the perfect wife to a pastor, Thomas. She’s also a mom. Her husband becomes more and more demanding over the years, and she feels as though she’s lost herself.

Thomas passes away suddenly, Liz feels all the grief you’d imagine, but also some freedom? She decides to audition for a role in the community theater and is successful. This role leads her to finding love again.

And Liz finds out she’s pregnant at forty-nine. Will she ever really find herself and reach her dreams?

I LOVED Liz. I LOVED this second chance storyline. I love when books have the message that happiness can be found at any age because it can. It was fun to see her church side meet her theatre side in so many ways.

Thank you to Kerry Anne King for giving Liz an inspiring story for us filled with color and hope.
