Blooging for Books Review

As I mentioned earlier, I signed up for a group called Blogging for Books. I signed up, chose a book, and was pleasantly suprised when the book actually arrived. The book is The Miracle of Mercy Land by River Jordan. I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. Now mind you, I received the book the day I my sister died. So I kinda had a few things on my plate and delayed reading. I finally started to read the book on the flight home and quite honestly couldn't put it down.
The book is an examination of the choices we make and what the choices mean to thosse around us. The heroine of the story recieves a book that when she opens it, shows her the choices made by the people of her town. It shows that the choices lead you down roads in your life that could have been altered by a single decision. It also reveals how choices effect those around us.
I really enjoyed the book. There were times I believe the story was harried and details not cleary defined, but overall didn't throw the storyoff. This book gives a good positive message. I believe that it would also be enjoyable and easy to read for young adults.
I can't wait for my next book!
