Fabulous debut novel
5 stars By Andrea Grigg, Feb 25 2015
I love novels about small towns because I don't come from one. The fact this (fictional) small town is situated in Texas, USA and not in my home country made it even more interesting.

Ruthie Turner has a chip on her shoulder the size of ... well, the size of Texas. A hard-working and resourceful girl, she has a lot to contend with due to circumstances beyond her control. Her mother has a 'past' and because of this, she and Ruthie are shunned from joining the local worship service. If they ever wanted to, that is. Ruthie has a dim view of church-goers in the light of what went on.

Interestingly enough, Ruthie's opinion of God isn't completely negative, and her attitude toward Him is challenged when she meets the eye-catching new preacher, Dodd Cunningham. Despite Ruthie's best efforts to avoid Dodd, their paths keep crossing and her barriers go up - barriers that Dodd does his best to break down.

This book had everything in it that I love. Complicated family dynamics, quirky characters, a mystery about the past, and best of all, romance. The chemistry between Ruthie and Dodd is fabulous. 

But that's not all. This story shows all too well the dangers of becoming religious, and yet the themes of God's love and grace come shining through. Highly recommended. Thanks to NetGalley for a free copy for review.
