Love, CharlestonLove, Charleston by Beth Webb Hart
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
SUMMARY (source: Booksneeze)
An inspiring, heart-warming novel set in romantic Charleston, South Carolina.

“Stay and wait.” Anne Brumley heard these
words years ago in the bell tower at Saint Michael’s Church in Charleston. She’s certain they were from God and has been waiting for true love ever since. But her sister, Alicia, and their sister, Alicia, have their doubts. Could Anne have misunderstood His calling?

Saint Michael’s new rector may be the answer to Anne’s prayers. Good-old-boy and widower Roy Summerall can’t believe he’s been called to pastor such an historical and a decidedly rich congregation. He can’t possibly measure up to their expectations.

It will take a miracle of extraordinary love to provide a happy ending for each of these four Charleston friends.

MY REVIEW
Despite the summary above, I found the novel to be very little about the love of Anne and Father Summerall and it focused more on three cousins (Anne and her sister Alicia and their cousin, Della). Each of these women represent different aspects of marital status and content. One woman searching for love at a later age in life, one married with a child who yearns to grow her family, and the other married and growing her family but having a difficult time in the process. It seems the grass is greener on the other side for these cousins yet they stand strong by each others side despite the heartache it may personally cause them.

Observing each woman’s journey touched me personally on a few different levels. I could relate to the post-partem depression, the discontentment in a relationship only to find it is actually exactly what I want. The story was a bit slow, however, and with chapters from the perspective of four characters didn’t allow the author to get deep enough into each character’s story. Overall, this was a light-hearted novel. I would suggest it was “okay” and give it 2 stars out of 5.
