ABIDE WITH ME
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
This is a gracious story about three sisters overcoming life's obstacles. That sisters Madge and Andrea are in their 50s adds interest and depth. Parr has excellent character development but abrupt point-of-view switches distract the reader. Alternating viewpoints by chapter would have been clearer. Still, realistic issues with concrete solutions will keep readers engaged.
After losing four family
Madge's husband has a huge surprise that threatens life as they know it. Jenny works long hours to support her husband's dream of becoming a writer, at the expense of her own aspirations. They must learn how to trust God, which is easier for some than for others. (STEEPLE HILL, Sep., 400 pp., $13.95)
