** spoiler alert ** More delightful and thought provoking ideas are found in the 2nd book in the Fairlawn Series. Fairlawn is the name of the Victorian home/mortuary, inherited by protagonist Jennifer
Graham. The story continues with Jennifer settling into the deep South and starting to realize how subtle our judging hearts can really be. Jennifer is beginning to mature in her faith to choosing behavior that isn't necessarily comfortable (like embracing a new found half sister who was a product of Jennifer's father's dalliance.) Along the way we learn more about a bomb shelter and the dangers of young teens who are fascinated by them as a club site...to tragic results.
Angela Hunt has many wonderful themes that weave through stories that are well researched and challenging. The big question in this book was "What would you do if pregnant, motherless, estranged from your father and separated from your new husband by 1000's of miles when your child is pronounced potentially malformed and at best one who would require a great deal of medical maintenance?"
Great books for discussion!
