|The book I chose to review is ‘Softly and Tenderly’ by Sara Evans with Rachel Hauck.|
I enjoyed the characters, and found them well developed and real. At times, I wondered how much more could happen to all of these people, and then I recalled the people I know who seem to be ‘hit’ over and over again. Somehow, it seems that some people just do experience repeated tragedy and difficulty, and this memory made the story-line that much more believable.
This is the second book in a series, and I found the references to incidents from the first book vague and dissatisfying – and all too frequent. I kept thinking that these references to the past were just a little bit of a mystery and all would eventually be revealed. So beware, you may want to read the first book (Sweet By and By) before you read this one!
All in all, an enjoyable book – and has the potential to be a good series.
