Image of Love, Charleston

Hart’s story will keep readers interested from the beginning, and the characters shine with Southern charm. However, much of the action takes place outside of the scope of the book, making the pace feel choppy and the reader feel as if important chapters have been skipped. Overall, it is a heartwarming tale with some touching moments dealing with the realities of mental illness.

Charleston is home to sisters Anne and Della and their cousin Lish. Anne is frustrated waiting on God for a husband while watching her sister and cousin marry and raise their children. Della harbors some jealousy of Lish’s ideal wealthy life while Della’s family struggles to make ends meet. Their new minister, Roy Summerall, seems like he might be able to help all of the women with their troubles, but he has issues of his own. How will God help each of them find their way? (THOMAS NELSON, Sep., 320 pp., $14.99)
