Image of This Fine Life: A Novel

Everson deftly uses Mariette’s first-person point of view to pull readers into life in the 1960s. Themes of growing love and developing faith make it easy to find common ground with the characters. This family saga will stay with you long after you finish the book.

After Mariette Puttnam graduates from boarding school, she returns home to Georgia to decide what to do with the rest of her life. Her father is pushing college and a career; her mother believes that marriage and family is the right choice. When Mariette meets Thayne Scott, everything she imagined for her future is changed. The budding romance means that Mariette’s life might be different than what any of them could have dreamed. (REVELL, May, 352 pp., $14.99)
