Lisa’s latest offering, Sky Beneath My Feet is the story of Beth and Rick. Rick is the Men’s Pastor at their church and Beth is a stay-at-home mom to their two boys, 18-year old Jed and 16-year old Eli. Not Jedidah and Elijah, just Jed and Eli.
Their church has determined that Rick really needs a vacation, so they have given him the month of October off. A friend gives them the keys to their house in Florida and Beth plans to spend the month, or at least part of it there with Rick.
At the last moment Rick decides he isn’t going. In fact not only is he not going, he’s moving out of their house and into the shed for the month. They aren’t having martial issues before but no one really knows that.
Beth and her friend Holly do take a few days in
the Florida sun, only there isn’t much sun. The start of hurricane and the hurricane that rid the stores of all things food, and beaches empty is down-graded to a tropical storm. While there though Beth hears from God. She knows what her purpose is.
But will Rick agree? What about the offer of the lead pastorship at a church in Richmond? Will he take it? Will he ever move back into the house from the shed? What will happen when Jed is reintroduced to Marlene? And Eli….will he ever forgive his father for leaving?
If you want to know the answers to these questions, you’re going to have to read the book.
Lisa Samson weaves not only a story that makes you feel everything the characters feel, she weaves a story that makes you think and ponder what you really believe. This story in particular had to it the feel of a Yada Yada Prayer Group story. I know I will be coming back to this book time and again.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of review.
