Waiting for Sunrise - Book Tour

Waiting for Sunrise
By Eva Marie Everson
A rising voice in Southern fiction, award-winning author Eva Marie Everson writes with a large helping of Florida charm. Waiting for Sunrise is a touching story of family, young love and the need for forgiveness. Everson expertly draws out the bittersweet moments of life, weaving them into a tale that envelops the soul.
Life sometimes gets the best of us. For some it's the daily pressures, for others it's the shadows of the past. For Patsy Milstrap, it's both. When she travels to beautiful Cedar Key on Florida's Gulf Coast in search of healing, she never dreams her past will be waiting for her there.
My Thoughts:
Patsy had experienced so much and from a child's perspective her mom abandoned her, but from a mother's perspective she did everything in her power to protect her child, as most mothers would. However this book was enlightening on how differently adults and children can view the same events, and how those views and memories can affect the rest of your life. I really enjoyed this book. It was not like most other Christian fiction novels I've read lately where it's the predictable storyline where a boy meets a girl leading to happily ever after. It touches on real life issues that many people face - abuse, trouble with the law, losing loved ones, giving up a child you can't care for etc, and found it very refreshing and real. I am definitely looking forward to reading other novels by Eva Marie Everson.

Eva Marie Everson is a successful speaker and the award-winning author of Things Left Unspoken, This Fine Life and Chasing Sunsets. She is coauthor of the Potluck Club books and the Potluck Catering Club series. She lives in Florida.

A copy of this book was received care of Revell, a division of Baker Publishing.

  1. Growing up in a destructive lifestyle, Patsy Sweeney tries to deal with her childhood past. Her stepfather was abusive to her mother, plus she had to help with the household and help take care of her two younger brothers at a young age herself. One day when Patsy tries to stop her stepfather from beating her mother, he suddenly sees her differently. Patsy's mother understanding that "look" puts Patsy on a bus to go live with the same family that adopted her brother as an infant.

    Years pass and Patsy misses her mother terribly. Married for 14 years to Gilbert and having 5 children together, she still wonders why did her mother give her up as a child? The pain never seemed far from her, and it bred anger and abandonment. This betrayal that Patsy lives with ends up haunting her own family. With God's help can Patsy overcome and forgive? The ending is bittersweet, grab those tissues!
