I have read most of Eva Marie Everson’s books. I can’t say there is one I didn’t like. So to say I was looking forward to her newest is maybe an understatement. This Fine Life is a bit different for her and yet is so good. She has set this story in the late 50’s/ early 60’s without falling into the storyline of the hippies and drug scene that so many writers focus on with that time in America’s history. She writes about what most people experienced during that time, life.
One thing Mariette is sure of now is that she loves Bender and wants to be his wife. She is sure that once they marry then everything will be perfect. Bender has other plans than what she was thinking would happen. Life is never easy and it doesn’t always go the way we plan, but God is with us and it is according to His plan.
This was the perfect book to read on cold and rainy spring weekend. It was a gentle story that was just nice to read. There is no great mystery and there is no great twist to it, it is just real life on the pages of a novel.
