Finding Me

I received a copy of FINDING ME by Kathryn Cushman from Bethany House.  Let me start off by saying how much I enjoy Christian fiction.  They are always feel good stories and this one is not an exception. 

This one gripped me from the back.  Kelly Huddleston is coming to terms with a past that might not be all that she was told.  I love novels that delve into the past.  This one also involved a small town in Tennessee.  I’ve never been there, but I feel as if I have, for the setting was painted not only beautifully, but realistically, with all of its joys and dangers.  I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but this is chilling, at times brutal, and altogether captivating.  You truly feel for these characters, even the ones you are meant to dislike…or perhaps we, the readers, are supposed to see the good in everyone. 

This book will make you a fan of Kathryn Cushman.  I highly recommend it.  This was a lovely novel for an Easter Sunday.  As another reviewer said, this a great book for forgiveness and seeing the need for the Savior.  I applaud Kathryn Cushman.  Bravo on an excellent book.

  1. Hello Jori

    You got me with your blog name - I love it!

    I see you love novels that delve into the past and wonder therefore if you would be interested to delve into, read and review my time slip novel, Nights of the Road? a remarkable real-life story from the 17th century Stuart court interweaves with the fictional tale of a 21st century English psychologist trying to create a new life in West Coast America. The women of both time periods are linked by experience as well as by blood: each struggles to free herself from unhappy marriage within a culture of patriarchal abuse, in which neither intends to be any man’s plaything.

    One pre-publication reviewer of Nights of the Road says: "In Nights of the Road, profound ideas sit lightly on pages you cannot wait to turn. This is a novel of swashbuckle and self-discovery, shifting not only between time, but place – from hipster LA to the ruined ramparts of Corfe Castle. Read it fast for its pyrotechnical plot, or savour more slowly what is essentially a literary spritzer for the soul.”

    I do so hope you may feel inclined to add Nights of the Road to your own reading and review list. If so, just let me know where I can send you a copy. (you can always send me your contact details via my confidential contact form on )
