Book Review: Legacy Lane by Robin Lee Hatcher

Angie Hunter left Hart's Crossing for college and never looked back. So when her widowed mother needs care following surgery, Angie is more than ready to hire a nurse rather than return to her antiquated hometown. But when she is passed over for a promotion at work, an angry Angie quits and heads home anyway.

Francine Hunter is both excited and nervous about having her daughter home for the next two months. She sees this as her chance to make a new connection with her estranged daughter. Will she be able to nudge Angie toward faith without overdoing it? Or will Angie pack up and leave for a new job as soon as Francine has recovered? (book description)

Legacy Lane is a book that reads as if it was real life. There are no great mysteries to solve, no great dramas to enact, just plain and simple real life...if you could call life plain and simple. And I like that about this book. It doesn't try to stand on crazy story lines, but simply shows the life of a girl who wanted nothing more to get out of the small town she grew up in and then later realizes that small town is exactly where she needed to be. It shows the real life struggle of how we sometimes find God.

All in all, I was really impressed with this book, except for the end. I wanted to wrap it up in a nice, neat bow and have Angie find God, marry her high school crush, and the world be right again. But that's not real life either is it? So, in all reality, the ending fell right where it needed to. And because this is book 1, I hope to see more of Angie in future books. 

I would recommend this book, it was a good read!
