It was alright. It was corny at times with too many coincidences.

Lots of caring and love. Shows how families can love instead of hate. A brother who is challenged and so accepted by a wonderful town. Loved this book.

Ready-Made Family tells the story of Amelia North, a single mom who is desperately trying to build a life for her and her daughter, Reece. The story opens in a mall parking lot in Refuge, Illinois. Amelia passes out in the summer heat and wrecks her car. Reece goes in search of help.

Amelia North is a character I truly admire. She has made some mistakes, but she does everything she can to provide for her daughter as a single mom, overcoming some very tough circumstances in the process. Ben Dillinger is a very compassionate, understanding person who has some challenges in his own life. The story is interesting throughout, but one character changed so much, and so suddenly, that I wished the author had more time to develop his part of the story and make it seem a little bit mo ...more

This was the first book I read by this author, and she has now been added to my, "favorite authors", list. I can't say anything bad about her writing or the story. It was wonderfully written, and I loved the characters and their stories. Who wouldn't want a, Ben in their life? You can bet I'll be looking for her name when I'm scanning the books at the store.

A nice little spiritual romance that really needed to be edited a bit better. Some of the words the seven year old used were not conducive of her age while other times I figured she was younger than her age with other phrases she used. The child's age should have been researched better. These kind of books are not my kind of reading really, but it was a happy, quick read.

I won this book on a blog drawing and Cheryl Wyatt signed and sent it to me. I think this personal touch made me like it more than I normally would have. To "know" the author and then read the story that she wrote makes it extra special. This really was a very sweet book. A story that really touches your heart. Cheryl did an amazing job bringing the characters to life.
