Kathy Andrews is good at goodbyes.
I revealed the cover. I interviewed the author. Now ’tis time to review the book!
Ah, Kathy. A Chicago girl whose world falls apart… on the very day the world falls apart. The Depression begins and so does a very difficult time in the Andrews family–especially for the oldest Andrews sister. But this story is definitely not all doom and gloom (far from it!). Kathy fights for her family and for the safety of her own heart.
But is safety what she really wants?
Through a move to the country, separation from loved ones, and the unlikely friendship of the one boy who can go head to head with her, Kathy (and Elliot, too) learn about life and having faith through it all. Is that enough to convince Elliot to forgive himself and Kathy to trust again? I won’t spoil the ending, but it is fitting!
I recommend God’s Will because it’s not a book about trusting Jesus to tie our heart-strings back together when they come unraveled, it’s not a book about smiling sweetly when the thundercloud is parked above our heads, and it’s not a book about finding God and life becoming happily-ever-after. Kathy’s story is one where she cries, rails, stays silent…and He loves her anyhow.
Isn’t that just the best kind of story?
If you love historical fiction, down-to-earth prose, and characters who become friends, buy this one, friends.
About the Author
Meghan M. Gorecki is a twenty-something living a hundred or so miles from Gettysburg and a hundred or so years from the history that beckons her.
