Better All the Time
Seraphina Darling has always struggled to stand out. With her weight issues at the forefront of her mind, Sephy prefers to place herself comfortably in the background. But when Sephy’s best friend and older brother announce their engagement, she vows to make a permanent change in her appearance and her life.
Meanwhile her younger sister, Amy, lands her dream job: coordinating the restoration of the community theater’s arts programs. As the deadline for the project’s completion approaches, Amy continues to run herself ragged, struggling to delegate and trust anyone but herself.
As the Darling sisters move through tragedy and triumph, between shadows and the limelight, each must find a path into the freedom of who God intended her to be.
My thoughts: I very much enjoyed the first book in this series, since the writing was fresh and the story an interesting one about a couple who deals with infertility. I love that the author writes very realistic stories that are easy to relate to. Better All the Time is an excellent follow up story! I love that it focuses more on Seraphina and Amy, one who hides her talents while the other tries to overachieve. I love that all the siblings are so different, so it's easy for every reader to sympathize with at least one of them.;) The writing is wonderful, the characters wonderful, and the story comes alive.
I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
