Thursdays Thoughts on Reading ‘N Writing
When you leave a comment on THIS post by midnight Sunday, January 15, 2012, you'll be entered in the drawing for a copy of the book I review below.
A Wedding Invitation by Alice J. Wisler
Alice was born in Japan to career missionaries. As a young child, Alice walked to the local stationer’s store to buy notebooks, pencils, and scented erasers. In her room she created stories. The desire to be a published famous author has never left her. She is the author of four novels. You may visit Alice at her website, http://www.alicewisler.com.
From the book’s back cover
After returning home from teaching in a refugee camp in the Philippines, Samantha Bravencourt enjoys her quiet life working at her mother’s clothing boutique near Washington, D.C. When she receives an invitation to her friend’s wedding in Winston-Salem, NC, she’s excited to reconnect with her college pals.
But the wedding turns out quite differently than Sam expects. A chance encounter leads to a reunion with Carson Brylie, a fellow teacher and the man who once broke her heart, and Lien, a young Amerasian girl who desperately needs Sam and Carson’s help.
But working with Carson might put Sam’s tender heart at risk once again. Is she willing to forgive the past and take another chance on love?
Alice J. Wisler gives us interesting stories peopled with a varied group of memorable characters. In A Wedding Invitation the plot is strong as her memories of teaching in the Philippines interrupt the living of her present life. Can she forgive and forget the past or will the past ruin her chance of happiness?
