The Familiar Stranger by Christina Berry

Hello Everyone!

I have read some of this book and so far, so good. The problem is I have caught a germ... like the flu? I can't make my eyes focus to read, the words keep blurring. :( So I will come back when I can and give this book the review it deserves by adding in an update right here in this post as soon as I am able. In the meantime, my apologies to Ms. Berry and my readers.

Stay safe and well, and I will be back when I can!
Carol :)

The Familiar Stranger

Moody Publishers (September 1, 2009)

Christina Berry



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Single mother and foster parent, Christina Berry carves time to write from her busy schedule because she must tell the stories that haunt her every waking moment. (Such is the overly dramatic description of an author's life!) She holds a BA in Literature, yet loves a good Calculus problem, as well. All that confusion must have influenced her decision to be team captain of a winning team on Family Feud.

Her debut novel, The Familiar Stranger, released from Moody in September and deals with lies, secrets, and themes of forgiveness in a troubled marriage. A moving speaker and dynamic teacher, Christina strives to Live Transparently--Forgive Extravagantly!

Her work has also appeared in The Secret Place, The Oregonian, and Daily Devotions for Writers.


ABOUT THE BOOK

Craig Littleton's decision to end his marriage would shock his wife, Denise . . . if she knew what he was up to. When an accident lands Craig in the ICU, with fuzzy memories of his own life and plans, Denise rushes to his side, ready to care for him.

They embark on a quest to help Craig remember who he is and, in the process, they discover dark secrets. An affair? An emptied bank account? A hidden identity? An illegitimate child?

But what will she do when she realizes he's not the man she thought he was? Is this trauma a blessing in disguise, a chance for a fresh start? Or will his secrets destroy the life they built together?

I hope you're feeling better, Carol! When I was put on bed rest with my second child, I thought it would be a wonderful reading time. Instead, the drugs messed with my brain and I couldn't concentrate. :(

I'd love to hear what you think when you finish!
