Let’s celebrate today in another way!! Brenda Youngerman has done it again with her latest book—Skewered Halo. She is sponsoring a blog party today and it is gong to be fun!!!! She even has cupcakes for us on her blog!!! Thanks, Brenda!!! Read all the reviews here!
How often do we say words that hurt others in our lives??? Hopefully when we do it is unintentional but in the case of Diane in Skewered Halo, Brenda Youngerman’s latest book, the words that her sister spoke to her when she was young stuck with her the rest of her life. Those words followed her and shaped her life. They haunted her. The words spoken were horrible and hateful and totally wrong.
When Diane goes away to school she tries to leave her past behind her and become her own person but it seems that trouble follows her everywhere she goes and happiness remains elusive. People come in and out of her life and questions are raised. What is the real story? What is going on? The mystery around Diane and her life and acquaintances swirls madly and the reader is left wondering how this story is going to unfold.
As is typical with Brenda’s novels the characters are real and the story is compelling. Once I started the book I seriously did not want to put it down. I wanted to find out what was going to happen next. Brenda has such a gift of writing books that have a deeper meaning. This is no different from her other novels in that regard. This is my favorite of Brenda’s books so far and it leaves me wanting more…..hopefully she will deliver another Fiction with a Purpose novel soon!
