AMY INSPIRED by Bethany Pierce
Amy Gallagher is working as an English Professor but dreams of being a writer. Those dreams seem to be slowly fading away with each rejection letter. Her love life seems to be following suit as her boyfriend, Adam, breaks things off. Just as Amy is feeling her lowest, her quirky roommate, Zoe, invites a friend to come stay with them. Eli is intriguing and draws Amy's attention but he's off limits. Or is he?? When secrets come to light and misunderstandings abound, Amy must decide what's important in her life.
This was my first book by this author. It was an interesting tale. The characters were very quirky and different. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about them but about half way through they do kinda grow on you. They were all interesting in that they were all very different. I did like the chemistry between Amy and Eli but it bothered me too because she was supposed to be a Christian and he really didn't have any interest in spiritual things. As Christians we are not to be unequally yoked. As a reader, I would have liked a little more of a defined conclusion. Overall it was a enjoyable story. Thanks goes to LibraryThing Early Reviews and Bethany House for this complimentary review copy.
