Perfect Piece by Rebeca Seitz

People hear 'chick-lit' and think light-hearted and easy beach reading. Don't fall for that when it comes to this stellar series by Rebeca Seitz! By far, her fourth and final installment to the 'Sisters, Ink' series is the most difficult to read, but the most relevant to just about any woman today.

Meg has always been the rock of the four sisters. Steady, cheerful and stable. So when she collapses on the ball field, unconscious, the sisters entire world is shaken.

Diagnosed with a brain tumor, Meg must undergo life changing--and maybe even life-ending brain surgery. If she comes out of the surgery, the question lingers...

...will she still be the same Meg?

The sisters vow to stand by Meg's side, come what may. Jamison, Meg's husband, believes he can weather the potential storms coming in their marriage. But when the storms hit, will all of his planning be enough to keep him rock solid in his commitment to Meg?

Fidelity is a touchy issue for many couples. I loved the way Rebeca handled it in this story. She has a knack for going deep into the secret places of a woman's heart and exploring areas that we don't always want to look at, but we need to if we're ever to be all Christ designed us to be.

And she does it with humor and heart. My husband came up to hug me, and I was upset. I told him about the book I'd just finished, and he asked me if everything turned out all right.

My response? "For now, I guess..." Then, he reminded me...THEY'RE NOT REAL PEOPLE! But they feel so real and alive to me! This is one of THE BEST series for women I've read, and I can only hope Rebeca still has more stories in her!

For now, I'm giving "Perfect Piece" five out of five bookmarks, with a curling iron as a charm (Meg will need it soon!). I'm also voting "Sisters, Ink" Best Women's Lit Series of 2009!

I'm going to miss the Sinclair sisters. Rebeca, if they ever stop by for a visit, be sure to let me know what they're up to!

Happy Reading!

This is one of my most fave series! I have the first 3 books, but I haven't been able to get Perfect Piece yet. I can't wait to read it! I've cried and laughed thru each of the books so far. This one sounds like I'll be needing to grab more tissues! :)
