A book about forgiving oneself and letting others in

The Bride Who Wore Blue by Mona Hodgson is an amazingly inspiring book about forgiving yourself and letting go of the fact that you don't have control of every aspect of your life. Vivian Sinclair is the youngest of four sisters finally being able to reunite with her sisters. Vivian is coming from Maine to Colorado with some weight on her shoulders. Vivian tries to take care of herself, she doesn't want to be a burden to her sisters. It is very hard for to find a job. Vivian has no plans to be married after her broken courtship in Maine. Then she meet Carter Alwyn the sheriff of the town, and they try to resist liking each other but their plans are not God's plan. As a last resort Vivian becomes a hostess at a saloon with some big problems ahead for her. I really enjoyed this book while I read it. I liked that it portrayed that while we want to control our lives sometimes it is just better for us to take a step back and let God have control and let Him take care of us. When we let go and give God the reins in our life then we will be able to let others in our life.

 I received this book for free for review from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing.
