Family’s, Secrets And Love
That’s Amore by Marion Ueckermann is a delightful contemporary Christian romance. It is the first book in the A Tuscan Legacy series that is a multi-author nine book series that has started so full of promise.
With wonderful descriptive passages, the Tuscan countryside really comes to life in glorious 3D. I could ‘see’ the landscape and almost ‘feel’ the heat.
Once again Marion Ueckermann has drawn fully rounded and likable characters that weave their way into the readers hearts. A big fan of all Marion Ueckermann’s books, I was delighted to see some familiar faces. It felt like I was catching up with old friends.
The novel revolves around family. A family with a whole missing generation as grandchildren meet to celebrate their grandmother’s eightieth. The reader can ‘feel’ the love radiating out.
However there are family secrets. Secrets that continue to wield power. Secrets can burden people down. Confession is good for the soul.
There is the theme of forgiveness. If we do not dispense forgiveness, we can easily become bitter. If we feel it is too hard to forgive, we must ask God for help but we must forgive.
Fear can hold us back. We may fear repeating the sins of the fathers but we are all unique and not destined to tread the same path.
There is a mystery to be solved. The reader wonders at the outcome. That’s Amore is wrapped up with satisfaction for the reader with a feel-good ending to leave you smiling.
A wonderful read.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
