Book Review ~ Love Comes Calling



Book: Love Comes Calling
Author: Siri Mitchell
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers
Publishing Date: March 4, 2014


I received this book free through www.netgalley.com from the publisher for an honest review.

My interest in this book: I last read Siri Mitchell's The Messenger a year ago and jumped at the opportunity to read another...especially one set in the 1920's. 

Ideas expressed / message / plot: Prohibition, Silent Movies/Hollywood, 1920's, God's laws & how He gives us a choice to follow--or not.

Favorite characters, quotes / lines: "If I wanted to see your elbows at the table, I would have set a place for them."

There are some other fantastic quotes that I'll probably tweet later but for now...I don't want to give too much away. All-in-all, there are some fantastic "lessons" in this beautiful story.

When I finished this book, I felt: It's like at Christmas time when you are saving that one present from that one person for last because you know they never fail to get you something meaningful and of great value to you. Her stories are treasures. I love picking up Siri Mitchell's books for a time when I want a really great read with purpose and history, love and Truth. 

I love learning; I love history and I love experiences. When I pick up a historical fiction that can deliver both then I have found something special and bookshelf worthy. I want to feel and get to know the people of the time. I want to understand the history and how it relates to today. Siri Mitchell has a truly incredible gift. I enjoy reading her Author's Notes nearly as much as the story itself; I always learn so  much--both spiritual and in knowledge. Reading her books is like talking with a friend. What great concepts and topics she approaches!

Thank you Siri, for an excellent experience and mind-stirring dialogue.  A truly fun read.

5 star and Totally bookshelf worthy.
