Book Review: Softly and Tenderly

Jade’s life is finally in order. She’s been reunited with her estranged mother, she’s realized her dream to own her own business, and she’s happily married. As she prepares for hopeful motherhood and puts to rest the demons from her past, her life is suddenly thrown into chaos with the news of her husband’s infidelity, the resulting child, and her mother’s terminal illness. In an effort to cope with all that she’s facing, Jade goes back to her childhood home with her mother and mother-in-law, where she finds no easy answers but where she learns to rest in God’s grace.

This is the second book in a four part series by Sara Evans. The story is one of love and faith that leaves no easy solution for the characters and that asks the hard “what if” questions of life. The characters were well written and easy to identify with, even without having read the first book. It was an enjoyable story that left me eager to read the next installment.

Many thanks to Thomas Nelson Publishing for providing me with a copy of this book. All opinions expressed are mine entirely.
