I do not often feel like I can pick up a book and feel as "at home" as I felt while reading this book. I enjoyed the comfort that the characters were able to give while the author built a thought provoking and dramatic story line. As a mother myself, Meredith's (the main character) interactions with her small child made me smile and also hit home with the worries and care she has to put into providing a positive life for her little one, while still searching for what is best for her own soul.
Being a working mother with 2 boys in middle school, reading is my 'get away.' It's wonderful to read a book that sweeps me away and lets me get involved in another life and story. I enjoyed this book and all the nuances the writer included to make this book feel like I was delving into the life of a dear friend. I look forward to more books written by Laurie Adair Grove!
I just finished the book and I can truly say that I was sad to see it end. The characters are real and you easily become attached to them. The writting style is excellent because the story unfolds in such a natural way that it makes you feel as if an old friend is sitting at your table sharing coffee and a tale about her life. Crossroads Serenade is more than a romance novel, it is a story about an enduring love for a man and the many choices we have to make in life. It is also about the family we are born into and the family we choose to create that makes us who we are today. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
I like to read general fiction, contemporary romances, books that deal with family relationships, and coming-of-age stories. I also like some time travel books, mysteries and humorous stories, as well as American history, auto-biographies and biographies of all kinds of people. Now that the sequel to Crossroads Serenade is completed, I have started my next writing project!
