With nine years of marriage down the drain, Chicago native Nick Stewart leaves the city behind in search of solitude. He heads for his most cherished place in the world to heal and live the rest of his life alone. Little did Nick know that God's plans were different from his own. Sleepy Valley is a small mountain village in the heart of the Tennessee Smoky Mountains that Nick loves. But instead of peace and quiet, he can't seem to avoid meeting everyone in the little mountain village. Within a week, he's got two beautiful women chasing him, a new best friend, and a little puppy to boot. It seems Nick didn't pick Sleepy Valley, but God picked the town for him, and what God has in store, Nick never could have imagined. Author Tim Callahan takes readers on a journey through heartache, laughter, and everything in between as Nick finds God's healing through true love and true friendship in Sleepy Valley.
A break from his successful Kentucky Summers series, Tim Callahan gives readers this new novel of romance and comedy.
What was most disappointing about Tim Callahan???s story?
The story was very dry and not very compelling. It just didn't grab me and interest me. I kept going for awhile but finally had to call it quits. Other than overall quality, one thing that really bothered me was the amount of time spent discussing the female lead's chest. It was given just as much "air time" as some of the characters. It just didn't sit well with me or seem to fit in with a story being billed as Christian. It cheapened the male characters' appeal. It might be better to re-categorize as more mainstream fiction.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I felt this narrator didn't add anything to the story at all. It certainly didn't redeem the content and definately detracted further.
