The Widow of Saunders Creek Book Review

About This Book

About This Book

A grief that knows no boundary.
A love without any limit.
A need that doesn’t end at death.

Corrie Saunders grew up in a life of privilege. But she gave it all up for Jarrod, her Army husband, a man she knew was a hero when she vowed to spend her life with him. She just didn’t expect her hero to sacrifice his life taking on an Iraqi suicide bomber.

Six months after Jarrod’s death, Corrie retreats to the family home her husband inherited deep in the Missouri Ozarks. She doesn’t know how to live without Jarrod—she doesn’t want to. By moving to Saunders Creek and living in a house beloved by him, she hopes that somehow her Jarrod will come back to her.

Something about the house suggests maybe he has. Corrie begins to wonder if she can feel Jarrod’s presence.

Jarrod’s cousin Eli is helping Corrie with the house’s restoration and he knows that his dead cousin is not what Corrie senses. Eli, as a believing man and at odds with his mystically-oriented family members, thinks friendly visits from beyond are hogwash.   
But he takes spirits with dark intentions seriously. Can he convince Corrie that letting go of Jarrod will lead to finding her footing again— and to the One she can truly put her faith into?
Corrie Sanders grew up with a silver spoon in her mouth and when she married Jarrod, she gave up her art career. But Jarrod was killed in Iraq.

She decides to move back to Jarrod's old home, in Saunders Creek, the old homestead left to Jarrod. She feels him everywhere and since there is alot of withcraft and seances going on, she feels like she must find out the truth.

Eli, Jarrod's cousin and Eli's mother, Sam, become close friends with Corrie. Actually, Eli falls in love with Corrie. He is also a minister and only wants the what is best for Corrie and himself.

She finally realizes that maybe she has come into contact with an evil spirit in the barn and she knows she has to do somethng before it's too late.

What do you think will happen? Things happen when we least expect them to and I myself have had that happen. When you let go and leave it be, things have a way of working out. All of your pushing and shoving people away only ends up hurting you in the long run.

You will come to love this book as a positive reinforcement of what the power of prayer and the power of what God gives to the righteous ministers and preachers in this world to help guide us in the right direction.

Happy Reading!

This sounds like an interesting cast of characters. I really like books where the hero/heroine undergoes some personal growth and this certainly looks like one.
