    Decent historical fiction

    Following the stories of Lizzie and Mattie, two residents of the Berachah Home in the early 20th century, and Cate a woman in her late 30s in modern times who becomes obsessed with the stories of the women at the Berachah Home. I love historical fiction and I enjoyed reading the stories of Lizzie and Mattie, how they came to the home, the friendship they shared that sustained them through the rest of their lives. Though each took a different course, they were proof that you can turn your life around and start fresh. Less compelling was the story of Cate. Cate has isolated herself in the world as a result of her own traumatic past and finds a connection in the stories she discovers of the Berachah women. For much of the book, it felt like I was reading two separate books when the narration shifted. Though the link is revealed in the end, it felt weak and almost as an after-thought. I would have enjoyed the story more if it had focused solely on Lizze, Mattie and the other Berachah women and dispensed entirely with Cate.

    emotional

    This is about a real place and the main characters are based on women who lived, loved and lost so much but throughout it all the endured and survived against terrible odds. I found it very emotional at times, it is a story that shows the real courage and resilience that we have when we think we have lost everything and there is no hope, this home and the people there gave women and children care, love and hope. Be prepared for a few hours of sitting and reading as this is a story that I certainly didn’t want to put down and leave till I had finished the book.

    Historical Fiction

    Home for Erring and Outcast Girls by Julie Kibler tells a heart wrenching story in Split Time from 1900 to 2017. It is a story of a sin sick world and the effect of sin in each character‘s life. It is based on the history of a Christian Mission home for women and children in Texas. While not traditional Christian fiction, this book does offer a message of Christian compassion and grace. I found this book slow and difficult to get interested in especially Cate’s story which did not seem to fit well and thought some of the characters‘ stories were incomplete in that timeline. I enjoyed reading the historical story with all the details of the Berachah Home. I received a complimentary copy of this book from First to Read. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. I appreciate the opportunity and thank the author and publisher for allowing me to read, enjoy and review this book.
