Love Lifted Me: A Songbird Novel, by Sara Evans with Rachel Hauck, is the third novel written by Sara Evans. Since I am a fan of Sara Evan’s music, I have read all of her books, and I was excited to have the opportunity to read the newest addition to her series. This book again looks at the life of Jade and Max and their marriage which has some difficulties. After Max’s drug problems and his time spent in rehab, he decides to leave his law practice and moves to Colby, Texas for the opportunity to coach a High School football team.
I liked the relationship between Jade and Max, and that Jade was willing to forgive her husband’s mistakes and even become closer due to the circumstances they went through. Also, they learn to grow with one another as they are attempting to find their place in a new city. They have to learn to move on from the past, both their past mistakes and their past home. I think this is something everyone struggles with at some point in their life, and I liked how this aspect of moving on was addressed. Overall, I enjoyed this book, but I would most likely only recommend it to an older-aged audience.
