Lark Summerville’s life has few surprises–and that’s just how she likes it. All she wants is to live out her angst-riddled life in her blue-collar Baltimore neighborhood, punctuated by weekly trips to her local parish, where Lark is organist, and telephone conversations with desperate souls who dial her hotline at 1-777-IPRAY4U.

Then one night, Lark’s home is destroyed by

In general I'm not a fan of Christian literature, but I thought she did an interesting job of having the women's prayer give insight into their thoughts. The only reason this book rates three stars for me though is that the constant balance of how much women in a family share and interact with each other is a huge factor in my own life. I'm never quite sure if I am being too involved or not involved enough with my mother and my daughters. I know I withhold information from my mother that she wou ...more

Pretty dark. Told by three generations of a family, Leslie, Lark and Flannery, and their housekeeper. Short, first-person chapters, but the characters are not nearly as strong as Kingsolver's Poisonwood Bible. The housekeeper had a blond braid, but she sounded pretty classic black to me. The ending is more hopeful, but I didn't see much motivation for the hope except Jesus.
I liked it, it was not her best work (in my humble opinion) but it was still good. I liked the characters, but just feel that something was missing. Probably the fact that I have read books by this author that were incredible. So probably comparing. Embrace Me Tiger Lillie The Sky Beneath My Feet you should really check out if you like this author.

a story that started with the best of intentions - 4 women learning to forgive, heal, and love God - but was written so ridiculously I couldn't take it seriously.

You don't really have a choice, not if you live what you believe and all, that sort of takes some of the pressure off

I thought I would really like this book but unfortunately I just couldn't get through it. I found the characters interesting in some ways. However, the way each character would monologue in their particular chapter got really odd for me. Obviously when a chapter is told from a character's perspective in the 1st person, it will be in her words and contain her thoughts. But I felt like I was reading someone's stream of consciousness and that I wanted to snap my fingers in front of Flannery's face ...more

A book about relationships. One relationship is between an elderly mother and her daughhter who have secrets they have kept from each other and how disaster in the daughters life leads to the two living together and learning to see each other for who they really are. There is a back story about lies and the fact that time may pass without the lie being discovered, however lies always come back to make you deal with them. It's a touching story with characters that are realistic and well developed

Lark has lied about her husband dying; when her house burns to the ground, she moves in with her mom, maid and daughter...change happens. Truth comes out.
Shea Kennedy
Although the plot was a tried and true (and a little trite)examination of mother daughter relationships, there were till a few little details that made this book an enjoyable little read. Not life changing, but sweet, it does make you smile at times and can be quite quoatable at others. Worth the read. Leslie, Lark, Flannery and Prisma are all unique and this is the main basis for the book.

interesting foray into what might be called christian women's literature. in this book you can pray and love jesus and it's what all the best characters do too. the questions are some all of us face and the characters were sympathetic if a bit two-dimensional. i liked the narrative; taking turns between each major woman character giving a sense of their own voice, thoughts, reactions etc.

Every chapter is told from a different female character's perspective: 3 generations of women plus the family's best friend/housekeeper. Interesting to see how each of them knows the others better than the others think. I love the characterization of Prisma and her relationship with Jesus.

I didn't think I'd like this book but my mom in law sent it so kinda felt i needed to for some reason. It is a shame i lost it by borrowing it out but I wont forget how this book was very down to earth for me.

I really enjoyed this character-driven literary fiction book. I found switching to first person for each character in their chapter a little off-putting at first, but I got used to it.
Paula Gilarde
No idea why I picked out this book - I can't remember who recommended it. It's a nice easy read, with religious bent.
