BETTER ALL THE TIME by Carre Armstrong Gardner is a good look at overcoming our own expectations and perceptions. It does look like I have come upon another series and author I am hooked on.
This series follows the Darling family, a family of four sisters and one brother. The oldest sister Laura has relocated to Phoenix and is distancing herself from the family. Ivy and her husband Nick are the focus of book one. Sephy or Seraphina, is getting her RN degree and battles a weight problem. Amy is the youngest becomes the new director of the cities art center. Enter Mitch, the boy the family took in during high school, he has been hired to do the renovations.
This is a look at a family that is close but also has sibling dynamics and tensions. Like all families each person has their own personality with its insecurities and masks. We can sometimes be the harshest critics of our own family. However, love and loyalty is the champion when we allow God's grace to prompt us.
I enjoyed the book and have added Carre to my must follow author's. I would recommend this with no qualms.
I received this book free from Tyndale for an honest review.
