Reunion: A Book Review


About The Book:

Keira Johnson, a 50-year-old mother of two grown sons, believes she lives a good Christian life without secrets-- until she discovers a life-jarring fact her late mother kept hidden all her life. Kiera was born out of wedlock, and the man she had always known as her father had adopted her as an infant.

Meanwhile, Keira's beloved 17-year-old niece, Kirsten, has just discovered an unwanted pregnancy. Her boyfriend, Jose, is bound for college and Kirsten does not know what to do. As the family comes together for a reunion, Keira and Kirsten struggle with their fractured pasts and jumbled present. Will truth and honesty be the catalysts that allow the entire family to find peace?

Inspired by events in Lauraine Snelling's own life, REUNION is the author's finest novel to date.

My Review:
Lauraine Snelling is one of my favorite authors. I have had the opportunity to read a number of her books, and recently had the opportunity to review her most recent release, Reunion.
In this book, Snelling tackles a tough subject, teen pregnancy, as well the consequences that come with it, and  family secrets that come out. The biggest reminder that occurs throughout the book is that the only way to experience true peace, even in trials and hardships is through having the Lord in our lives.
The writing style is such that I felt that I was right in each scene with the families and their experiences. The characters were all wonderfully developed and the book ties up neatly at the end. A very emotional read, but a quick one, as I read the whole book in only a few days.
If you are a Lauraine Snelling fan, you will definitely enjoy Reunion. If you haven't had the experience of reading her books, this is a great introduction to her gift of writing.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
