Resting in the Bosom of the Lamb Reviews
I REALLY like this author. She has one other book I will excited to read. This is a great story about family and what makes a family. Great, strong characters. Some very insightful thoughts into the whole family dynamic and life.
First off, I've always loved books about the South. I was excited to read this book and thought it would be no exception. Well, I was a little disappointed. I loved the familiar southern "language" of the book, and the down-home country feel of it. I thought it had a good storyline and great characters, but my 3 stars came into play because of the way the book incessantly dragged. I would've liked seeing more character development for Wynona and Lauralee. I must have quit this book at least 3 times, even after making it over halfway through. But, because of all the good reviews, and the secrets I knew remained unrevealed, I plotted on. It wasn't until near the end that things finally picked up a little and the secrets were SLOWLY brought to light. There were several things I enjoyed about this book, the strong evidence of love of family, and the commitment to one another, to name a few. But for me, getting through it was almost excruciating! I just think it could have been laid out and put together in a much better fashion.
A tender, heart-warming - and sometimes heart-rending - book about a group of southern women, who together find the grace and courage to live their lives, help each other and face their tragedies. Very well-written and plotted, with little pointers all the way through hinting at what has gone before. Stories abound in their world, stories of love and loss and loyalty. There’s an old- fashioned feel to the book, but that’s not a criticism. The sights and sounds and smells of the American south are beautifully evoked, and for a little while the reader can visit with these women and share their lives.
A totally delightful book of southern women, both blacks and whites living together and sharing secrets from the past. I really enjoyed this book as sometimes you could not even tell who was black and who was white.
I can sum this book up in three sentences. 1)Augusta Trobaugh is a wonderful writer. 2)This book is amazing from the first page to the final words. 3) If you read it, you won't be disappointed. Well, and one more sentence...Fantastic book!
I enjoyed reading this book that has a real Southern feel to it.
rec. in Honey. Eccentric cast of characters--4 women sharing a house, a past, and a secret. Good writing style.
This is a fantastic book about the connections between women. Lots of good sound bites of wisdom.
I started this today so not very far yet. I've read other books by this author and liked them alot. My reading right now is limited due to the process of getting ready to move.
Another great book by Augusta Trobaugh. She catches the voice of the south so effortlessly!
