Happy Friday, Diverse Reader Friends!

About the Book
The Blurb: “Dani Richardson is living the dream. A corporate lawyer pursuing the case that could make her whole career, married to the man of her dreams with a beautiful child to boot, Dani knows this is the life she’s always wanted. What she can’t quite figure out is why she is so desperately, quietly miserable.
When Dani and her husband Eric decide to buy and renovate the old Attabury house in Ridgemount, North Carolina, Dani has no idea that God might have other plans when it comes to her life and her marriage. Will Dani be able to hold it all together long enough to get the impossible project done, or has she finally met her match?
Eric Richardson has built a life for himself and his family to be proud of. Coming up from a family drenched in grief and turmoil, he has painstakingly engineered their way into the good life. But when his wife Dani decides to buy and renovate an old, broken-down house that might as well be demolished and used for kindling, Eric is plunged into a way of life he never knew existed. Now as Dani battles ghosts and shadows old and new, Eric must decide if staying with her is even worth the gut-wrenching ride, or if it’s time to call it quits and admit the life he thought he was building is doomed to failure.
Can God’s love really save a broken, desperate marriage? Find out in “Raising Attabury.””
Raising Attabury is book five in the Grace series. When I purchased this to read, I didn’t realize it. But it quickly became apparent this book was part of a series. The first few chapters left me confused as I struggled to figure out what was going on and what had been going on. Once I figured it was book five, I chalked the rest of my confusion to that. So I would caution you to read the other books first.
The message of Raising Attabury is a good one. It looks at marriages and I love that. Rarely do you get an already married couple in a romance book. The struggles Dani and Eric go through are real. We get to see what their life is like without God as their center and what happens when they began to change that.
There are a lot of good lessons and quotes in this book. I highlighted a lot but Kindle showed me how much everyone else also highlighted. It was stunning.
All in all, another good read by Ms. Stallings.
