by Ray and Betty Whipps
There are, TRULY, no words for this book. You must take the time to pick this up and read it. Wow.
Ray and Betty Whipps are true American heroes. When WWII started up, both jumped in to do their parts. Ray fought through France after landing on the beach at Normandy. His account of those horrific months is just right; not too graphic, but enough information.
What a BEAUTIFUL love story and the best memoir I have read in a long time. Their faith and courage are absolutely inspiring. I highly recommend!!
Thank you for this amazing read in exchange for my review. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
by Jan Watson
Jan Watson is an author that is completely new to me. I had never read anything by her and was excited to review this book. As you know from past reviews, the front cover is a major selling point for me and this is a beautiful cover! Unfortunately, the positive attributes of this book end there.
The story has multiple main characters. It is supposed to be centered around Mazy Pelfrey and how she will decide between the two men in her life. What is it that she really wants for her future? However, the author is continually sidetracked with characters that are completely irrelevant to the story. Every little bit of scenery and every mundane activity seems to be written in great detail with many confusing side stories and details. Furthermore, there is nothing exceptionally likeable about any of the characters and the ending is quite abrupt.
The epilogue tells us who she chose. It doesn’t show how or when. It also tries to wrap up all the characters in a nice little package that has absolutely nothing to do with the storyline. Not only is it unrealistic, it is completely ridiculous. The whole epilogue completely blew my mind. I have never seen an author do this before.
Believe me, I hate to give a scathing review. Unfortunately, there was nothing I liked about this story that could redeem it.
I do thank you, Tyndale House Publishers, for giving me a copy of this book for my review. Here’s to many more!!
