Wish You Were Here is another of my favorite books. It isn’t set in the 1920’s or Amish life like many of my favorites. It is modern and very easy to follow.
Allison Denman is supposed to get married in five days, but everything is all wrong. The huge wedding. The frothy dress. And the groom. Still, kissing the groom’s brother in an unguarded moment is decidedly not the right thing to do. How could she have made such a mistake? It seems Allison’s life is nothing but mistakes at this point. And pulling a “Runaway Bride” complete with stealing, er, borrowing her best friend’s car doesn’t seem to solve her problems. Can Allison find her way out of this mess? Maybe she just needs to stop orchestrating everything. Allison prefers being the one in control, and giving it up is not going to be easy. But to find her way again, she will have to believe that God has a plan for her and find the strength to let Him lead.
I think the book is written really well. The author took the story in just enough different directions to keep me interested. She added faith and seeking God in a way that didn’t force it upon you or seem out of context. Everything flows really nicely and this is another book that I didn’t put down until I had finished the story!
