Read in September, 2011

If you're avoid "Christian fiction" because you worry it'll be a sermon rather than an engrossing narrative, read "She Makes It Look Easy," which takes on the age-old theme of other people's grass being greener in a fresh and unflinching way. Justine and Ariel are two very different women whose lives intertwine when they become neighbors. Their accidental and uneven friendship illustrates the winding path that our choices can take--and how faith influences those choices in surprisingly subtle ways. Without spoiling the plot, I will say that the scene that gave "She Makes It Look Easy" its name illustrates what a gifted writer Whalen is; I never saw it coming. Highly recommended, including for non-Christian readers.
