Book Review: Love, Charleston by Beth Webb Hart

Love, Charleston revolves around the lives of four main characters - sisters Anne and Alisha (Lish), their cousin Della and a widowed priest named Roy.

Anne is single but is holding out hope for love based on a promise from God she heard years ago. Her hope is waning and her sister and cousin urge her to move on.

Anne's sister Lish seemingly has the perfect life, but her health struggles combined with her husband's career ambitions threaten to destroy this picture perfect family.

Their cousin Della has become disillusioned with the life she's made with her husband and the return of her former fiance to Charleston is making her rethink her life choices.

Roy loves ministering to his flock and struggles to understand why God would call him and his daughter to pretentious and superficial Charleston.

Roy's passion for the Word is contagious and inspires you to grow in your faith. Anne's flagging hope is a reminder that God's promises will be filled in His time, not ours. Lish's story reminds us that our hope needs to be placed in God alone. Della's struggles shows us how easy it is to fall for Satan's lies especially when our focus is on ourselves instead of God. All of their stories are excellent reminders that God's plan for our lives is perfect, even when it doesn't make sense to us. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Thank you to Booksneeze for providing me with my complimentary review copy of Love, Charleston.
