“Love, Charleston” by Beth Webb Hart is the warmest, most charming novel I’ve read in a long time. It was a real page-turner, and I found myself picking it up every chance I got. I’m so happy that I was chosen to receive it from the Goodreads First Reads Program.
It, initally, starts out about Rev. Roy Summerall, and his not wanting to move to Charleston after a job proposal has been presented to him. As time goes on, this move proves to be the best thing for him and his family.
However, the real heart of the novel takes place between two sisters and a cousin, Anne, Lish and Della. Even though these three women are different, they have a bond that’s untouchable and unbreakable. Anne, single and very tall, believes that she heard God speak to her about waiting for a mate. As a result, she’s been doing just that, but she’s starting to wonder if she heard correctly afterall…Lish is a doctor, mother of three, and has a doctor for a husband as well, and her life “seems” to be picture-perfect. But, is it? And, Della, mother of one, and married to an artist, isn’t sure if she made the right decisions with her life, and begins to contemplate it all. She begans to wonder whether life on the other side of the fence is greener, or did she always have everything she ever wanted all along.
“Love, Charleston” by Beth Webb Hart is a definite read for anyone that enjoys good chistian romance with sides of family, love and old-fashioned human spirit mixed in.
I give it 5 stars.
