"Beneath a Southern Sky" by Deborah Raney (2001) - REVIEW

Goodday and welcome to
"The B.B. Weekly Review"
Review: "Beneath a Southern Sky"(2001) by Deborah Raney really captured my attention and wrenched my heart. I couldn't rest until I knew what would happen and that everything would be alright. I literally cried through about 1/3 of this book. Sometimes in agonizing sorrow, sometimes in sheer happiness.
I thought about it all day while I was at work, read through my lunch hour and hunched over it late at night until I was finished.  This is a story of disobedience, redemption, heartache and true love.
After Missionary Daria Camfield's husband is reported dead, she returns to the United States as a widow with their unborn child. Several years later, after having remarried and begun her life anew, she receives the news that her first husband has been found alive in the wilds of Colombia. If you truly love your spouse, you will agonize with Daria as she has to make the hardest decision there is.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys being emotionally involved in their reading. You won't be able to remain detached from this story!  
My Rating: 4/5
