Over the past several weeks I have been reading back and forth between Missional: Joining God in the Neighborhood, by Alan J. Roxburgh, Holy Currencies: 6 Blessings for Sustainable Missional Ministries, by Eric Law, and Jesus Feminist: An Invitation to Revisit the Bible’s View of Women, by Sarah Bessey. Each of them is intriguing reading in itself, and in combination they have an interesting synergy.
But yesterday all this “serious” reading took a back seat as I discovered the latest paperback title from Danielle Steel: The Wedding. I happily read half-way through the night, and as soon as I got home from work (and took a little nap) I was back at it again. I love Danielle Steel and have been reading her novels since the 1970s. I especially enjoy having one with me when I am flying somewhere. And this one did not disappoint. As usual, she wove a complex cast of characters into a charming story that developed easily, with an ending that made sense and pleased me.
I cannot even fathom the vastness of “over 600 million copies of her novels sold!” as is trumpeted on the back cover of the book. All I know is that when I find one of her novels that I haven’t already read, I clear the decks and read (including staying up reading all night, more than once).
If you like Danielle Steel, you will enjoy The Wedding. If you haven’t tried her yet, now is the time. Enjoy!
