Thursday Book Review--Paige by Annette Lyon (#3 of The Newport Ladies Book Club)

Paige by Annette Lyon

Paige is a young, single mom who has moved from Utah to Newport Beach with her two "little men" seeking a new life.

Injured by the heartbreak and injustice of an unfaithful husband and friend, Paige learns that giving service and support to a group of new friends found in a book club, brings strength into her own life.

As the only LDS member of the group, Paige has an objective understanding of the Atonement that she can strengthen others with, but has yet to apply it in her own life. I liked how Paige was not afraid to learn wisdom from women of other faiths.

Although we feel Paige's soul-rending heartbreaks, the tone of the book is lighter and more hopeful. It ends as it should, though I'd like to jump a few years into the future.

I think all of the authors have done a tremendous job blending their voices to give us a seamless story. This series would make a lovely movie.

If you enjoy women's fiction, you'll enjoy reading this.

Meet the authors:
Josi Kilpack, Annette Lyon, Julie Wright, Heather Moore
