In Girl Defined, sisters and popular bloggers Kristen Clark and Bethany Baird offer women a countercultural view of beauty, femininity, and self-worth. Based firmly in God's design for their lives, this book helps women rethink what true success and beauty look like. It invites them on a liberating journey toward a radically better vision for femininity that ends with the discovery of the kind of hope, purpose, and fulfillment they've been yearning for.

So very thankful for what God is doing in and through these wonderful girls! And thankful that they are so willing to submit to God, stand for truth, and shine the light of Christ to a lost generation. Having had few Christian role models to look up to throughout my growing up years, I am especially thankful to have two girls slightly further on in the race cheering me on and sharing how I can better run the race for Christ with perseverance. :) You simply must read this book! :)

There is nothing extraordinary about Tucker O’Shay’s dreams. Go to college. Become president. Fall in love. And pretend like he has enough time to get it all done. Sixteen-year-old Sarah Miller doesn’t expect anything out of the ordinary when she begins her first day at the one-room-school house in her new hometown of Rocky Knob. But when she meets seventeen-year-old Tucker O’Shay she finds herself swept up in a friendship that changes the way she sees the world and a love that changes her life.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not only would I recommend this to a friend, I already have! Gail's voice was more perfect than I'd expected. I found my self swept away in the story, something I wasn't sure would happen with an audiobook. It is full of heartwarming charm and sweet, gentle love. I've read it twice--three times counting this audiobook. And each time I sob my way through it. It's absolutely amazing! Definitely a must read!

What was one of the most memorable moments of This Quiet Sky: A Novella?

Whenever Sarah and Tucker had a moment-- they shared a look, he complemented her singing voice, she was blushing under his gaze-- that's the sort of thing that makes you heart melt.

Which scene was your favorite?

I won't be corny and say 'all of them' (though it's tempting!) But I'd say Tucker's birthday party. I love the love that is shown 'round the table, the family homey-ness that makes you want to curl up in a cozy chair and laugh along with everyone else.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I really don't know. Maybe something along the lines of "If you knew your days were numbered, would you be willing to love with all your heart?" I'm not all that great at taglines, sorry :P

Any additional comments?

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in return for writing an honest review (thanks again, Joanne!). This review contains my personal, honest opinions.
