Best-selling and Christy Award–winning author Gunn returns with the follow-up to Becoming Us, in which readers were first introduced to the five DOEs (Daughters of Eve). Narrator Jennalyn cares for her two small children while her husband works long hours as a chef and part-owner of a popular restaurant. Though it’s been some time since her mother’s death, Jennalyn finds herself struggling with unresolved emotions, keeping her grief secret even from her close circle of friends. Many will relate to Jennalyn’s loss and the difficulty in expressing such profound sadness. When a former boyfriend reconnects with her, Jennalyn begins to question the foundation of her marriage. With the help of her fellow DOEs, she learns to trust God’s guidance in difficult circumstances. Gunn’s light touch prose handles heavy situations with grace and warmth, affirming the necessity of supportive female friends in one’s life.
VERDICT Many readers who have grown up with the “Christy Miller” series will applaud this newest release. A great Christian beach read or just a gentle escape to accompany a cup of tea.
