Sunrise on the Battery Book Review
Mary Lynn has anything she could ever want ~ at least material things. When she joins a ladies' Bible study, she realizes that something is missing from her life. As she finds joy in her relationship with the Lord, she discovers that material wealth isn't everything and that nothing can fill the void in your heart except for God. Her husband is resistant to this change. Will she have to give up everything she has to be faithful to God?
I have always been enchanted with stories that take place in the South. I was born in Charleston and love to visit, so I was especially interested in reading "Sunrise on the Battery," which is set in Charleston, SC. While I enjoyed the story, it had a slow start and I had difficulty maintaining interest in the beginning. However, once I got into it, I liked it very much. It was an entertaining read and I enjoyed reading about happenings around landmarks with which I am familiar. This book really stops to make you think about what is important in your own life and how material possessions aren't everything.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher (Thomas Nelson via Booksneeze) in exchange for a quality review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. I did not guarantee a positive review.
