    "moving right along,,,,"

    This book was pretty entertaining to start with, then it lagged along and dragged stuff out that could have been shortened up a mite. I probably wouldn't have finished this one since it was kind of long except I listen a lot so just kept on and finally it was the end. Good story but could have been seriously condensed. If there is an abridged version that might be more interesting.

    I love books! All kinds... classics, mysteries, Christian fiction, suspense and action! I'm also a sucker for anything romantic. ;) And just recently started getting into some non-fiction, philosophical books.

    "Warning! Christian Literature!"

    There, you were warned. And that being said, this is an incredibly well written Christian book. After the prologue, my eyes were watery and I was just... "woah." More so than her other novel on here, "Perfecting Kate" (also fantastic, I highly recommend), this book has a LOT to do with God and the inner workings of the church, the fear of a split, the enormous pressure put on the family's of pastors and how, even though God forgives, people remember. Not a book to recommend to non-Christians. But Christians should definitely read this book.

    Not only does it tackle the difficult business of modernizing a church, not alienating the older generation, but finding a way to bring everyone together, it's strong message on forgiveness is one that we all need a reminder on sometimes. And really, there is so much more. She completely captured church life, and the fear of "growing" a church.

    I didn't find the book to be too slow. If it was paced faster, or abridged, you would miss the growth of the characters, why they change and why things happen, and the understanding of the characters' personalities. I like my books and movies to be about the characters, to know them, to feel their pain and their joy, and this book most certainly did that.

    I was incredibly surprised by a pleasant find when I purchased "Perfecting Kate" on a whim. I have no idea what took me so long to get Splitting Harriet... Probably the idea of being disappointed after having my hopes up so high, expecting another great book. I needn't have worried. In all honesty, after just 2 books, Tamara Leigh has become my second favorite Christian author after Francine Rivers. Not only are her books fun and comedic, they are intense and deal with real issues. The integration of God into the lives of the characters and not just being an afterthought is what REAL Christian fiction is about. The characters aren't perfect, they struggle, and they overcome. I HIGHLY recommend this book to any Christian.

    ps. There are many more books by Tamara Leigh, but they aren't in audio-form yet. I hope that this changes soon. I will definitely be purchasing the paperbacks of those and hope they become available soon.
