Abby Finds Her Calling: Home at Cedar Creek, Book One by [King, Naomi]

Abby Finds Her Calling: Home at Cedar Creek, Book One by Naomi King


The Lambright family's eldest daughter, Abby, runs her own sewing shop. There, she mends the town's clothes and their torn relationships. But the town maidel has sworn off any suitors of her own because of her unrequited love for James Graber, who is about to marry her younger sister, Zanna...


On the wedding day, Zanna is nowhere to be found, breaking James' heart. Zanna has brought shame to her family, but there's more in store for them when they discover how far she has fallen. Long-buried secrets come to light, and they test the bonds of the Cedar Creek community. Abby is at the center of it all, trying to maintain everyone's happiness. But will she ever find her own?

My thoughts:

I felt I was right there at the wedding, witnessing the moment that the incident happened.  I was heartbroken for James and the family  and I worried right along with them.  Yes, it felt that real.  As I read Abby Finds Her Calling, I felt the heartbreak, the anger, and the judgement.  I also felt the forgiveness, the love, and the peace.  


Did you ever read a book and think at character reminds you of someone you know?   Abby, my favorite character in this book, reminds me of one of my best friends.   She's kind and always knows what to say to soothe, making you think more positive.  

I couldn't put this book down because I wanted to know what happened and how they will ever solve this dilemma.  Yet, at the same time, I wanted to slow myself down so I could savor every moment reading.

What a great, great read!
