I finished this book only because it was a book club selection. I am pretty sure I would have stopped an hour or two into it and then would have asked for my credit back. It uses religion as the basis for the entire story. That in itself would be a turn off to me, but I stuck with it. I actually began to enjoy the book and thought religion was intertwined nicely. Predictable? For the most part yes but a nice relaxing read. Characters are people that we all probably have in our normal lives that we can truly relate to.

Let me start with the narrator: she has an awful fake Southern accent that grated on my nerves terribly. Eventually I got somewhat used to it, so if the story had been good, I might have been able to overlook the narrator.
Unfortunately, the story was fairly awful, as well. Gilmore is a good writer, but the story is simple, sappy, and, ultimately, boring. We've heard all this before, and the platitudes are so overdone I'm embarrassed that I wasted my credit on this selection.
