    I bought the book not realizing it was Christian fiction and there were a couple of hints that it wasn't standard fiction But what sets this book apart from other Christian fiction is that it doesn't beat the reader over the head with its message It's a natural somewhat subtle progression and the characters don't sit around talking about their faith all day The uality of writing is also much improved over other faith based novels I've readThe characters are a bit broadly drawn even main characters The four siblings are almost cartoonish at times very stereotypical but I think this is a side effect of having to take four main characters through a major life change or not in a year It's a lot of material to cover and I think the solution might have been to split this up into a series of four books Still I enjoyed this book tremendously and couldn't put it down until I had finished it

    35I really enjoyed the southern setting in this book I have a weakness for live oak trees spanish moss and descriptions of salt marshes and this story placed me right there among that beauty The plot was one that felt fresh to me and I enjoyed watching the growth in the main characters Although I enjoyed this novel I would not recommend it to everyone Even though it was published through Thomas Nelson it reads much edgy than the typical Christian read I feel like I needed this read at this time in my life though It reminded me that there is always room to love better live happier and live with a purpose with others in mind I am looking forward to trying books by this author My slightly lower rating is because I wanted to see stronger character development for the first half of the book and I wish the revealing of the executor was written with a stronger finish of an impact on the characters and the reader

    Great book I laughed cried got angry and cheered the Wilcott family on This was a good Christian book and I could hardly put down While I wasn't reading I was thinking about it I even kept my husband awake and night discussing what was going on in the book he found it interesting as well This book is one that should be owned I will probably go back and read it 5 8 years down the road and I don't usually re read anythingThe only issue I had was towards the end after the year was over with when the second part of the will was read When only One of Jeffery's sons was mentioned as if the dad was around during the year after his death If it was supposed to be written as it was from his dad his father would have mentioned all 2 3 of his grand kids not just one because he wasn't alive This discontinuity bothers me ;Other than that small thing I LOVED the book DO NOT let my nitpicking keep you away from thisbook It is totally worth the readI am about to hit up Flies on the Butter then Secrets over sweet tea then Hurricanes in Paradise and the other Savannah books I read Savannah from Savannah 7 8 YEARS ago and I must read the rest of the seriesDenise Hildreth Jones has just stepped out as one of my top 10 favorite authors Being from Birmingham AL I LOVE the Southern isms D I need a sweet tea a coffee and a Coke ASAP with all of the books I am about to read ;

    While I like this author's writing I felt that she added some things that are not necessarily appropriate for a novel categorized as Christian Other than that I felt she accurately portrayed the conseuences of our sinful choices

    I found this a pleasant if predictable non challenging book It is a good read for when you want something that is certain of a happy resolution It fulfilled the need of the genre a pleasant unchallenging read that assures the redemption of the characters who seek it and a happy ending for most There was some casual and abusive use of alcohol I know a lot of people may object to casual social use of alcohol in a Christian book but there are many Christian denominations that do drink socially The definition of Christian is not one size fits all Some Christians do drink socially even at functions at church There are characters you know have a history of sexual promiscuity but you never have to witness any of it It was a slightly less safe Christian book since there are some references to alcohol drugs sex and sexual abuse Nothing is explicit but the book does not exist in a completely sanitized world of denial about the some of the unfortunate realities in the worldMy difficulty with it is the editing The book is set up in a chronological pattern The story begins in August and ends the following August We reach the section labeled February and find a section discussing plans for Thanksgiving and even mention decorating for Christmas Who proof read this? I can't imagine how the writer turned the book over the editor with this sort of error and that the editor missed it as well I can only assume the section was meant to have been in the section labeled November and ended up being moved for some reason associated with balancing scenes for each character Perhaps they should have edited it to discuss the upcoming Easter dinner instead of Thanksgiving Also the scene seemed to suggest there was going to be a pivotal scene in which a new character in one of the plot lines would be introduced to the others in the book a scene that would move the plot forward at Thanksgiving We never saw it It never happened There never was an actual holiday scene in the book I had the feeling the book had been written in a hodgepodge of scenes which were eventually cut or glued and pasted together without bothering to make sure it all still made sense and flowed as it was meant to flowI found the writing style easy to read in short bursts in a doctor's office for picking up in a hotel room on a trip before falling into bed for reading in the car rider pick up line at school This was a nothing special book but was interesting enough to keep reading The book is pleasant I keep coming back to that word It is pleasant and that is about the extent of it Sometimes all you need at stressful times is for a book to be unchallenging and comforting with just enough plot to keep going a literary Hallmark Channel offering

    Four self absorbed and spoiled rich siblings are waiting to find out what their father has left them in their will When they hear the stipulations that he has placed on their inheritance they are all outraged to find that they will have to completely change their lives for an entire year and do as instructed if they want to be eligible to find out what he has left them With the stakes being so high they plunge into this new year of their lives and in the process enormous changes take place How will the year end?This book has been out for several years but I just finished reading it I must say that I am completely impressed If you have read many of my recent reviews you will know that I have been somewhat disappointed with several of the new offerings in the Christian fiction market They just seem to be making lip service to God and do not make a real impact for Christianity at all This book is differentHere you have a fantastic tale of pain remorse greed desire selfishness heartache and redemption that will keep you captivated and intrigued from page one All four siblings are spotlighted with a close up description of their choices and actions throughout that year The ending will keep you glued to your seat and is completely satisfying The story is great—the spiritual lessons are even greater This is one book that truly provides a great story while teaching a valuable spiritual lesson as well If like me you find yourself tired of the contrived and false plots of so many of the new books do yourself a favor and read this one You won’t be disappointed


  8. Elizabeth Elizabeth says:

    When a wealthy man dies his four grown children are told at the first reading of his will that they have one year until the final reading In that year the attorney doctor antiue lover and student must work pro bono with no contact at their current businesses These spoiled adults are stunned and at first try to see if it's a hoax Eventually three of them wizened up and start making positive changes in their lives The student and youngest however never stops thinking it's a fraternity prank or some such thing Although some aspects seem a tad predictable in the outcome how it gets their is simply good writing The characters are believable and watching them grow in understanding is good reading This is one of her earlier works and I count it one of my favorites

    Drama's supposed first rule is that characters must change That is what this novel is aboutCharacters do change however reluctantly and sometimes their changes seem at least a bit artificial or even contrived but so what?Thomas Nelson published Denise Hildreth's novel she must have added the Jones afterward and I hope Congratulations is appropriate and there are certain standards for that imprintThe story is involved even complex and there are sorrows to go with the joysHowever overall a reader surely will come away pleased I certainly did


  10. Heidi Barton Heidi Barton says:

    Enjoyed this book a lot It was a pleasant captivating story line with well rounded characters And I appreciated that the author didn't have to use a bunch of swear words or graphic sex to tell the story of this modern day family This book is considered a Christian novel but if you aren't looking for it it won't slap you the face over over which was another reason I enjoyed it
