Saints in Limbo

I'm sure the title of this post could be multi-dimensional considering what's going on in my life right now, but all it really is is the title to my latest Blog Review Book!

This one was different than the others before, but it was still great! I gotta tell you, I'm loving these books!

Saints in Limbo is written by River Jordan (and what a cool name!) who is a critically acclaimed novelist and playwright whose unique mixture of southern and mystic writing has drawn comparisons to Sarah Addison Allen, Leif Enger, and Flannery O’Connor. Her previous works include The Messenger of Magnolia Street, lauded by Kirkus Reviews as “a beautifully written, atmospheric tale.” She speaks around the country and makes her home in Nashville. So she's a local...another reason to read this book!

Saints in Limbo is a story about Velma True whose world, ever since her husband Joe died, has been limited to what she can see while clinging to one of the multicolored threads tied to the porch railing of her home outside Echo, Florida. And that is literal...she can go no further than these threads.

That is, until a mysterious stranger appears at her door on her birthday and presents Velma with a special gift. She is rattled by the object’s ability to take her into her memories–a place where Joe still lives, her son Rudy is still young, unaffected by the world’s hardness, and the beginning is closer than the end. As secrets old and new come to light, Velma wonders if it’s possible to be unmoored from the past’s deep roots and find a reason to hope again.

I can't say enough about this book...it's heartwarming and I truly enjoyed reading it. As always, I have two copies to give away. If you are interested in winning a copy, email me at Sandras_junk@charter.net or leave a comment below. I'll draw this Sunday, June 7th after noon.
