Book Review

Genre: Inspirational, Multicultural

RT Rating

The novel depicts a sweet romance between widowed Savannah and Antonio. Savannah's grappling with her faith and her future are realistic. Oftentimes faith falls out the window when tragedy strikes, but Hudson-Smith does a great job at dealing with mourning and suffering. However, the dialogue is too preachy in spots and stilted in others. Also, romantic scenes are shown as flashbacks, written with a sense of reverie. All in all, this novel is a good read for fans of Terry McMillan.

Two years after the death
of her husband Geoffrey, fortysomething nurse Savannah Richmond decides to change her life. She
retires from her nursing job and
moves to nearby town. There she
meets the handsome, charming Antonio Delabay. They are drawn to each other physically, but once they discover they are both widowed their connection grows stronger. Savannah isn't sure
if she should allow herself to have
feelings for Antonio, since she still loves Geoffrey.

Just as Savannah feels comfortable pursing a relationship with Antonio, another tragedy threatens to still her joy. (Kimani/new spirit, Nov., 256 pp., $14.95)
