There You'll Find Me
Grief brought Finley to Ireland. Love will lead her home.
Finley Sinclair is not your typical eighteen-year-old. She's witty, tough, and driven. With an upcoming interview at the Manhattan music conservatory, Finley needs to compose her audition piece. But her creativity disappeared with the death of her older brother, Will.
She decides to study abroad in Ireland so she can...more
I thought I was definitely going to love this book.
Turns out I was absolutely and 100% right. Well, kind of. I l don't think I imagined I was going to love it this much.
I read it four days ago and I still think about it and smile, but let's get down to business, here's the review:
There are times when you like a book because the characters are funny or because the story is good.

At its core, There You'll Find Me is about healing from past wounds. Hotel heiress Finley (love her name, by the way!) goes to Ireland two years after the death of her brother hoping to escape her home and party-girl reputation. She's been through therapy,...more
Let me get this strait, it's not that I don't believe in God (truth being told I don't know how much I do either), but I don't like reading about this subject and I had to skip entire paragraphs.
Except for this little discomfort, the book was amazing, that's why the high rati...more
Two things I love about books is that they take you to
places that you have never been and make you feel things
that you have never felt. I loved this book because not
only did it take me to Ireland (after reading this I really
love to visit Ireland) it also made me feel the familiar
feeling of loss and pain.
Finley Sinclair was struggling after the death of her
brother Will. Her brother left a journal documenting his
trip to Ireland and how he found God there. Trying to find
out for herself what...more
First of all, I could not stand Finley. The book description said she was "witty, tough and driven," but I thought she was snobby and bitchy. She had this "been there, done that" attitude, and she was so quick to judge people by stereotypes and label them as a certain type. She did that with Beckett. She did that with Beatrice. She did that with Taylor and the actress types. And she did that with Mrs. Sweene...more

I do admit that it didn’t entirely meet my expectations, needless to say it was still a good and refreshing story. I kinda like Caleb + Kate (a Christian fiction too) better but the plot of There You’ll Find Me is charming with a tinge of realism. Some may have an impression that books like these tend to be preachy, which is not. Regard...more
When I was younger, I used to write stories about a group of friends who lived in Ireland. It was just a random country I picked out in the world atlas, and I thought I liked the sound of Ireland as a setting. Of course, I really knew nothing of the country then, and it wasn't until later on that I read and watched some stuff about Ireland on TV that I realized none of what I wrote was even the least bit realistic. But my recent trip to Europe got me to meet a YFC m...more
This is such a beautiful book.
I can't really find the words to describe my feelings after reading, but I can say this: There You'll Find Me is heart wrenching and emotional. It's a wonderful story about loss and love and one girl's struggle to put back the pieces of her life shattered by a tragedy.
I had to pause for a while and gather my bearings after I finished reading this. I was a bit misty eyed when I leafed through the last page.
One of the most adorable an...more
How do I say this. I unladylike fell head over heels in love with this book.
You know that happy place everyone has? Well this book took me to mine in a smooth long and laughable journey.
Mrs Sweeney had me choked up, I had so much sympathy and admiration for her as a person and if her sister hadn't shown and offered her the forgiveness she seeked I would have had some serious ass kicking to do.
When she went, a piece of my heart went with her. I was so sad until I imagined her ha...more
Do you remember this scene from Pride and Prejudice?
I felt so good while watching that and through the whole book I had the same feeling,like there is something bigger than me in this world.
Two years ago Finley lost her brother Will and now in her senior year of high school she is in Ireland where her brother was spending...more
This was my first experience with both NetGalley and Jenny B. Jones (thank you, Thomas Nelson!). I'm happy to report it was a positive one. I don't have a lot of experience reading Christian fiction, so I was a little surprised that There You'll Find Me felt very contemporary. In fact, in the early pages, I was looking for differences to set it apart from similar mainstream releases like Anna and the French Kiss. On the surface, these two titles seemed sim...more
This is one of these books that took me too long to read and Zemira told me that this was a must-read. Finally I got some time and read this book. As expected I was too stupid for not reading it right away.
For starters this story took place in Ireland. I haven't read a lot of books that were placed there. It's always USA or UK so yeah the change of setting was nice. But There You'll Find Me is a story about Finley who is searching for something. After her brothe...more
The past two years have been a struggle for Finley Sinclair as she face the death of his brother, Will on the hands of the terrorists. In a way to fix her life she decided to head to Ireland to finish her senior year and follow her borther's footsteps. Equip...more
There You'll Find Me features quite a cast of quirky characters, many of whom charm the reader's heart despite their unique first impressions...more
Finley was such a real character; she grieved in more ways than one and with no one to really turn to (especially in a foreign country), she looked for her faith in the landscape of Ireland, where her murdered brother, Will, felt closest to his own faith. She struggled to understand the beauty that Will saw while he studied abroad, and my heart ached for her as she missed the importance and beauty of life in th...more
I liked the overall message of the story. I think the intentions behind the story are applaudable; and are relatable to some extent: having doubts, feeling alone, lost, angry, questioning ones' faith, and so on. Also, I liked the meaning behind Finley's name, and I liked reading about her journey; YET I somehow still felt like there was something missing. The story, when it came full circle, didn't deliver the emotionally powerful punch I was craving.
I think it was because there were too man...more
So I was sitting, getting ready to write this review and trying to come up with something I didn't l...more
What they didn't mention in this summary is how awesome Finley is. She's used to fame. She's not fazed by sitting next to a really good-looking celebrity, aka Beckett Rush. I love her snar...more
Es justo el libro que necesitaba, y fue una historia maravillosa que realmente me llegó al corazón.
Ya lo terminé y sigo llorando por todo lo que me hizo sentir, por todo lo que me hizo reflexionar y más importante aún por todo lo que me hizo recordar.
"Intentarlo realmente significa aceptar el amor de Dios, su curación, aceptar que el mundo puede ser feo, pero tu corazón no tiene que serlo. Se necesita valor. No puedes sostenerte en la ira y la amargura en la búsqueda de la cu...more
What an intense book! There is so much going on in this story. Sometimes, I felt like there were too many different aspects of the story, but then everything really ties together in the end.
The romance between Finely and Becket was absolutely swoon-worthy. Who wouldn't want the most gorgeous movie star to also be such an amazing guy on the inside too? It's interesting how this most ultimate of romantic fantasies is in the book along with such traumatic sissuesand experiences that make u...more
