Beneath the Night Tree by Nicole Bart
Julia DeSmit is a single mom to her son and her half-brother. She takes delight in living with her grandma on the family farm. While their family looks different than most it's hers and she loves it. She has a good job, a handsome boyfriend whom she expect to be engaged to any day, and family that is dear. Her world is rocked when her son's father e-mails her and asks "do I have a child?". Her response and what follows turns her world upside down. God's grace reigns and Julia finds God's blessings in the midst of uncertainty.
I gave you a very brief synopsis of this book because it's a winner and I didn't want to give anything away. Nicole Bart writes with beautiful imagery and you'll find yourself captivated. The book's description did not intrigue me so I was reluctant to crack open the pages of this one. However, I was immediately drawn in and I read it in record time. The undertones of healing and wholeness were beautiful and the story so sweet you'll be up late turning the pages of this one. Get it, read it, be blessed.
Thank you to Tyndale House for providing a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
