ABOUT THE BOOK:

God doesn’t always call us to do what’s easy.

Amy Harris is the after-school care coordinator and long-term sub at the same inner city high school she graduated from. She’s always avoided the complications of dating outside her multi-ethnic heritage. Until Zach got hired.

Zach Wilson took a teaching job in a D.C. public school as part of a student-loan forgiveness program. Nearing the end of his commitment, a possibility arises to move to a magnet school in the suburbs. But will leaving the city end things with Amy before they really have a chance to start?

As Zach and Amy work together on the school’s annual holiday program, they must each decide if they’ll dare to follow where God calls.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Elizabeth Maddrey began writing stories as soon as she could form the letters properly and has never looked back. Though her practical nature and love of math and organization steered her into computer science for college and graduate school, she has always had one or more stories in progress to occupy her free time. When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth is a voracious consumer of books and has mastered the art of reading while undertaking just about any other activity. She loves to write about Christians who struggle through their lives, dealing with sin and receiving God’s grace. Elizabeth lives in the suburbs of Washington D.C. with her husband and their two incredibly active little boys. She invites you to interact with her at her websitewww.ElizabethMaddrey.com or on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/ElizabethMaddrey

My Thoughts:

This was a nice story about a couple who have different struggles they are dealing with. The question is are their struggles too big to overcome?

I love that Elizabeth tackled the topic of race in her book. This is something that doesn’t get talked about too much and the issues that can arise internally and among family.

Zach has an opportunity for a new job that will take him away from Amy and work with different kids that might not be as challenging.

Elizabeth does a great job with these issues and bringing them to light.

Grab you copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or your favorite retailer.
