Great book like the story and the author. I would recommend this story to others
WOW!! If youre lookin for a fun and quirky read that packs a one-two spiritual punch, then Lookin Back, Texas is the book for you. And NOBODY delivers down-home, Texas-size fun better than the Queen of Quirk, Leanna Ellis. With flawless prose, easy-does-it dialogue and heart-and-soul characters that become like family (quirks and all!), Ms. Ellis weaves a truly memorable and wacky yarn that will have you chuckling on one page and tearing up on the next. Delightful and deep at the same time, Lookin Back, Texas is one of those truly unique novels whose unforgettable charactersand the lessons they learnwill have you lookin back in fondness for a long time to come.
This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. Yes, it's a whacky story, but very believable - and very funny. It has a great message, too. I live in the Texas Hill Country so I felt a connection to the setting and characters. It's a must read!
Fun, Entertaining Read, but Deep in Sooo Many PlacesThis is the first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last. I won't rehash the story line, as it's been clearly covered in the first three reviews, Personally, I find the input from reviewers more helpful than hearing a summary of the story, so I'll cut to the chase.I chose to read this book on a very long flight home, knowing I wouldn't have time to finish it once I arrived. My busy schedule doesn't allow a lot of time for reading, and it often takes me a couple of weeks to finish. Not so with this one. The humor, unusual plot line, and realistic main characters kept me picking up the book and putting other work aside. I was captivated by the depth and strength of Susannah's introspection and emotions. The spiritual thread was believable and well done. I laughed, worried, found myself surprised at plot twists, and thrilled at the strength shown by Susannah's husband Mike.I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a clean, fun, thought provoking read. Leanna Ellis has written a winner!
