Book Review: Waiting for Sunrise by Eva Marie Everson

Publisher's Blurb:
Sometimes finding your future means making peace with your past
Patsy Milstrap wishes she could leave her past behind. Though she tries to put on a brave front for the sake of her family, the wounds still ache, and the scars on her soul are still deeply felt. At her concerned husband's gentle insistence, they take a vacation from South Carolina on Cedar Key, an idyllic island on Florida's Gulf Coast. A week in paradise will do them good, he says.
When a familiar--and most unexpected--face greets her at a seaside restaurant, Patsy knows she can no longer run from the past. But what will opening old wounds mean? And what will the future hold?
With a large helping of Southern charm, Waiting for Sunrise is a touching story of family, young love, and the need for forgiveness. Eva Marie Everson expertly draws out the bittersweet moments of life, weaving them into a tale that will envelop your soul.

My Review:   I enjoyed this book, it was a nice easy read but thoroughly interesting with many plot twists. I would recomment this book to others.

Again, Eva Marie Everson writes a wonderful story with characters that readers grow to love and believe as though they are real. She writes Patsy's story in a way that seems so real, I was wanting to pray for Patsy daily as I read this book! I love the beach setting, and Cedar Key sounds just like the place anyone needs to go for healing. And Gil is adorable, and his love for Patsy is so very heartwarming, he was willing to do anything to get help for his wife. And Patsy knew he was trying so hard, it must have hurt her so to know he loved her and was trying to help her. One thought I had as I was reading was that wouldn't it be wonderful if all husbands and wives had that unconditional love for each other, just as God has for us. Marriages would be able to survive if this were true. This book truly shows the true real love in a marriage that could have easily fallen apart. A love that grows through the difficult times, not one that is torn down. The author had be crying a lot during this book, but I had to smile and even laugh at times as well. Eva Marie Everson is truly a gifted and talented author that will always be a favorite on my reading list.
