Coming Attractions

Hello all. I know Latte Lover doesn't normally do book reviews, but I felt inspired to write one today. My hubby and I are currently on vacation, but check back in two weeks for the normal daily devotions.

Have you ever read a book and felt God speaking to you through the pages? This is how I felt the first time I read The Christy Miller Series by Robin Jones Gunn. At the time, I was a young girl, struggling with a desire to be popular in school but to also stay true to my convictions.

Because of my love of Christy Miller, I quickly picked up the Katie Weldon books. I wasn't disappointed. Like Christy Miller, Katie Weldon is an extremely real and down-to-earth character. I truly identified with her as a friend. Gunn is definitely not afraid to portray a character with faults.The final book in a trilogy, Coming Attractions follows Katie’s final experiences in college. Having recently graduated from college, I identified with Katie’s confusion about the future. I won’t spell out the conclusion to the story, but I will say that I was extremely surprised yet delighted in the end. In essence, Katie comes to a realization that God writes a more beautiful love story than any of us can understand.
Coming Attractions was a well written, fast read. I would recommended it anyone, young or old, who wants a nice book to read on a Saturday afternoon while sipping on a cup of tea. You won't be disappointed.

Robin Jones Gunn has over 70 books published to date. Her books have sold over 4 million copies worldwide. She has been married for 32 years and has 3 grown children, and one cuddly golden retriever named Hula. She "loves God and loves telling stories."
