Book Review: Love, Charleston

Love, Charleston 
Love, Charleston by Beth Webb Hart is a book of dreams and hope, family and friendship. Widowed Preacher, Roy Summerall is the minister of a small church, raising his daughter and living with his mom, all is peaceful and settled until he receives a phone call from a church in Charleston.

A very large, historical church in Charleston wants to interview Roy for a position in their church, while this is a great honor, Roy does not exactly jump for joy at the thought of ministering to the refined folks of Charleston.  Imagine his dismay when he is told he has the job....his lack of excitement is made up for by his daughter as well as his mother who both come to live with him in Charleston.

Not to be outdone, there are some formidable characters in this story, Anne, Alisha and Della all have problems of their own and become a part of Roy's new life when he begins writing to Anne, who has gone to England to learn bell ringing.  Alisha's husband has a serious lack of ambition which drives Alisha crazy and towards other interests and Della...well she has some mighty big problems of her own.

This is a story about several people who will work their ways into your heart, they all have a love of God which becomes very important in their daily struggles.  I really enjoyed this book, it had a bit of a different 'flavor' than some of the other books I have been reading.  A very enjoyable light read.

*Thomas Nelson publishing provided a complimentary copy of this book for me to review, my opinion is solely my own.
