REVIEW: Interrupted by Rachel Coker

Title: Interrupted - A Life Beyond Words
Author: Rachel Coker
Publisher: Zondervan
Published: February 14, 2012 

Publisher Synopsis:

Can love really heal all things? If Sam Carroll hadn't shown up, she might have been able to get to her mother in time. Instead, Allie Everly finds herself at a funeral, mourning the loss of her beloved mother. She is dealt another blow when, a few hours later, she is sent from Tennessee to Maine to become the daughter of Miss Beatrice Lovell, a prim woman with a faith Allie cannot accept. Poetry and letters written to her mother become the only things keeping Allie's heart from hardening completely. But then Sam arrives for the summer, and with him comes many confusing emotions, both toward him and the people around her. As World War II looms, Allie will be forced to decide whether hanging on to the past is worth losing her chance to be loved. 

My Rating:

My Review:

Set during World War II

What a great premise and story line. This is not something I would typically be drawn to, however the characters in this story were all very well developed and the fact that this is such a moving and powerful story really made this a book I can say I am glad I read. 

Allie must learn to survive and overcome. Even when her mother was alive she was strong and took care of her. She is such a strong girl. She is however very stubborn. She is young and dealing with grief which everyone deals with differently. 

There are definite undertones on Faith and this has a real religious feel to it. 

This is a heart-warming and oftentimes heart-breaking story, but overall great debut from Rachel Coker.
