Through reading the back cover of this book, I was expecting a love story but Love, Charleston by Beth Webb Hart was much more than that. Love, Charleston deals with the relationships between three cousins and the struggles they are facing in their marriage, with their jobs, in their relationships, and with their mental health. I was pleasantly surprised by this book, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in reading a book about the realistic relationships.
The book is written from the viewpoint of three different characters. Roy Summerall is the single minister who moves to a new town and is looking for love and a mother for his daughter, Rose. Della Limehouse is questioning her relationship with her husband due to the financial constraints they are experiencing. Alisha Sutton is a doctor and the perfect mother who seems to have everything, but as she becomes ill her life drastically changes. Lastly, Anne Brumley is a main character within this book, although she does not voice any chapters in the way the other three do, but she is integral in the story. Anne is the sister of Alisha, and she is questioning what she thought was God’s plan for her life.
I really enjoyed this book, and although this was the first book I read by this particular author, I can’t wait to read other books by Beth Webb Hart.
