I got my copy of A FAMILY FOREVER a week ago, but it was immediately snatched out of my hands. My wife took one look at the cover and felt her heart strings tugging.

“Can I have a peek at it first?”

“Sure honey.”

That was the last I saw of her until she finished it. I was completely left to do for myself. I had to cook dinner AND do the laundry too (sympathy appreciated).

At bedtime, she announced that she was finished reading it. I could tell from the look on her face, she wanted to tell me all about it.

“Shhh, not a word; I’m going to read it in the morning.”

She smiled, “That’s what you think; Caleb’s got it.”

“Ok..., does he know it’s a ROMANCE?”

“He’s already on chapter two.”

We both laughed.

I knew I was in for something special. It took a couple days, but I finally got my turn. I was hooked on the first page, but it quickly grew into an obsession. The same heart strings that tugged at my wife, took me captive also.

Brenda Coulter’s A FAMILY FOREVER scores five stars. Masterfully written, lovable characters and nail-biting drama make this book the page turner it is.

Get a copy for yourself and an extra for everyone else. You might want to order a pizza too.

Order the book from Amazon

Awe, poor curmie. Life is so hard on men, isn't it? lol You had to wait to read the book and feed yourself and wash your clothes and then wait for your son to finish the book as well? Awe, poor curmie.

Sounds like it must be a great read. Thanks for sharing.
