Review 1 for Illinois Weddings
Date:May 5, 2013
The one thing bad about this book is that it ended too soon. I wanted to continue with the lives of all the other wonderful ladies in the book. I had such fun reading this 3 in one book. I identified with each of them. But, like I said, it ended too quickly for me. So, I am now back online buying every book I can find written by Melby & Wienke. Great job ladies!. I specially liked that God's love was at the center of each of these stories, and the message of the Gospel was front and center! I thank God for your gift and because you chose to share it with the rest of us.

Review 2 for Illinois Weddings

This three-in-one collection is a joy to read. Following the lives of three generations of women, Becky Melby and Cathy Wienke create characters that are both believable and likable. The first story describes Angel, the youngest of the women. Facing tremendous real-life challenges, she is an inspiration to those trying to find a Christian moral “compass” in today’s society. Jeanie is highlighted in the second book, and her courage facing difficult past life choices is heartbreaking. The third book details Ruby’s story, the feisty matriarch of the family who is trying to find her place in a changing world. All three stories offer redemption and forgiveness, and highlight God’s ultimate grace in all situations. And, of course, there is plenty of tender romance peppered throughout the entire book!
