Taking FlyLady’s example, I’ve decided to list a few of my favorite Thanksgiving things:
- That perfect single bite that contains a juicy piece of turkey, my mom’s gravy and some cranberry jelly.
- Pumpkin pie with homemade whipped cream
- Mom’s FriChik stuffing
- Hours of family time with no thought of work
- The Wednesday night before – the anticipation of four full days off ahead of me.
What are your favorite Thanksgiving things?

Writing Style: 5
Overall, this was an enjoyable book to read. For me, Christian Fiction is the best kind of brain candy. It’s guilt-free entertainment.
Content – One of the things I like about some Christian Fiction writers (Francine Rivers, Dee Henderson) is their ability to weave examples of real Christians into their story lines. Unfortunately, sometimes I get the feeling that Christianity is just used as a backdrop, rather than being the focus. That’s fine and all, but not the kind of book I really like to read. There was some spiritual journey for one of the main characters in the book, but it wasn’t particularly inspirational to me. When I leave a book feeling enriched and inspired…that’s content.
Writing Style – I did enjoy the way the book was written. She’s good at suspense and mystery. It kept me reading later in the evening than I should have sometimes. That’s a good sign. 🙂
Re-readability – I would have nothing against reading this book again other than that I’ve just read it. I will keep the book because it is good enough to read again, but I won’t say that I plan to revisit it more than once.
