Home Another Way

Bethany House (October 1, 2008)


Christa Parrish


Christa Parrish graduated high school at 16, with every intention of becoming a surgeon. After college, however, her love of all things creative led her in another direction, and she worked in both theatre and journalism.

A winner of Associated Press awards for her reporting, Christa gave up her career after the birth of her son, Jacob. She continued to write from home, doing pro bono work for the New York Family Policy Council, where her articles appeared in Focus on the Family’s Citizen magazine. She was also a finalist in World magazine’s WORLDview short story contest, sponsored by WestBow press. She now teaches literature and writing to high school students, is a homeschool mom, and lives with her family in upstate New York, where she is at work on her second novel.


After her mother’s death and her father’s abandonment, tiny infant Sarah Graham was left to be raised by her emotionally distant grandmother. As a child she turned to music for solace and even gained entrance to Juilliard. But her potentially brilliant music career ended with an unplanned pregnancy and the stillborn birth of her child.

In an attempt to escape the past, Sarah, now twenty-seven, is living life hard and fast–and she is flat broke. When her estranged father dies, she travels to the tiny mountain hamlet of Jonah, New York to claim her inheritance. Once there, she learns her father’s will stipulates a six-month stay before she can recieve the money. Fueled by hate and desperation, Sarah settles in for the bitter mountain winter, and as the weeks pass, she finds her life intertwining with the lives of the simple, gracious townsfolk. Can these strangers teach Sarah how to forgive and find peace?

A story of grace, of God’s never-ceasing love and the sometimes flawed, faithful people He uses to bring His purpose to pass.

My thoughts:

I've started this story but haven't gotten very far into it yet. I only have an ARC and sometimes it takes me longer to read those that regular books. Don't ask me why cause I don't know. I think maybe it's the smaller typing?

I like how her father stipulates in his will, how she has to spend 6 months in the hamlet of Jonas! I would be interested in seeing the types of people she interacts with and how she accepts them or not. Please enter me in your book drawing. Many thanks.....Cindi

Oooh, this looks so good! Thanks for the review!

And hey, you found the "I heart your blog" award before I even had a chance to tell you, lol. I found the "rules" and added them to my post - we're supposed to pass it on to seven other people. :-)

God bless!
