"Where Hearts Prosper" by Suzanne V. Reese
Suzanne is the aunt of my BFF from high school. Though I met her YEARS ago when I was in high school, we became better acquainted over lunch. I was enamored that I sat next to someone who would have her fist book published soon. I monopolized her and her time as I peppered her with questions about her book and the process of becoming published. And I promised I would read her book.
Where Hearts Prosper is a book about love, family and secrets. Carmen Anderson has spent her most of her life running away from a hurtful memories and the place she thought would rejected her.
Now she is a single mother career woman and her teenage daughter who is starting to act out. In an impulsive moment, Carmen decides to move back to her little hometown and its wholesome values. But is she running away again?
In Prosper, Carmen's daughter, Paige, finds family and friends and learns to serve and love others. And Carmen finds she didn't need to leave at all.
Suzanne's story held my attention through the entire book. I didn't want to put it down because there was always the question of what next?? How will the conflicts resolve? It almost drove me crazy to have those questions answered and I stayed up WAY too late finishing the book! :)
And now I ask Suzanne, what next? She told me she is working another project so keep your eyes open for Suzanne V. Reese, a new and upcoming author!
