SUMMARY:

Julian’s widow, Ada, must now face life alone while Katherine deals with the shame of the reason behind giving up her seat. With a failed marriage, a religious sect, a shattered young boy, a gift of inner viewings, graceful forgiveness and an unyielding faith, Still Life embraces life and humanity genuinely and compassionately while providing direction for the future.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Christa Parrish wrote this book in a different style than most; however, the word choices coupled with the unique expression worked so well. Such a deeply moving and heartfelt story with characters living real lives intertwined with faith. With a fascinating storyline, I wasn’t quite prepared for the depth of this novel yet was surprisingly tugged and immersed completely in it. Reading it in a few short days, it is a book which still causes me to pause to consider some aspects, especially the value of life.

RATING:
5 (out of 5) pennies
