Book Review: A Place Called Blessing

Another month, another book review.  It’s been nice, being able to enjoy reading for pleasure again, now that I have time without studies on my hands.

I chose this book because of the backstory… a young boy, whose parents are killed while he was young and who grows up in foster care and learns at a young age to become self-relient… yet lacking what we are all looking for in life: unconditional love.

The book is an incredibly fast read, which was good because it was a bit predictable.  I was drawn in during the first couple of chapters, but the middle was a bit slow for me.  The ending as I said was a bit predictable, except for one surprising turn of events, which made the story line completely worth reading.  (I don’t want to give it away.)

The themes of trust, unconditional love, and being blessed are nicely woven throughout the book, and the characters are definitely lovable.

I enjoyed the story, and for anyone who wants to read a book in a few hours, it’s a good one to pick up.
