Waiting For Sunrise by Eva Marie Everson

From the Back Cover:

Life sometimes gets the best of us. For some it's the daily pressures, for others it's the shadows of the past. For Patsy Milstrap, it's both. When she travels to beautiful Cedar Key on Florida's Gulf Coast in search of healing, she never dreams her past will be waiting for her there.

With a large helping of Southern charm, Waiting for Sunrise is a touching story of family, young love, and the need for forgiveness. Author Eva Marie Everson expertly draws out the bittersweet moments of life, weaving them into a tale that envelops the soul.

My Thoughts:

Eva has always been one of my favorite authors, and with each book I grow to love her storytelling style more and more.  She captured me with her earlier series, co-authored by Linda Evans Shepherd, but her latest books are 'stay-up-into-the-wee-hours' reading experiences!

Patsy Milstrap has had a difficult life.  A loving mother wasn't enough to make up for her monster of a step-father and his abuse.  But what Patsy remembers as abandonment is actually the greatest gift she's ever been given.


A chance meeting on a bus turns into more, and soon Patsy is beginning a life and a building a home of her own.  This story is the perfect illustration of what can happen when we build on faulty foundations.  And what can happen when we find a love that truly lasts a lifetime.

I don't want to say any more because I don't want to spoil the magic of the story as it unfolds.  I was two-thirds through the book when I just had to stop and cry and email Eva and tell her just how much I adored her and her writing.

I received "Waiting For Sunrise" from Revell Publishing in exchange for my honest review.  I can hardly wait for the third novel in the "Cedar Key Series".  Don't miss the first book, "Chasing Sunsets", where we first meet Patsy. 

"Waiting For Sunrise" (and all of Eva's books) is highly recommended!

Happy Reading!
