Kerry Evelyn has a light-hearted style that entertains the reader in this new adventure.
There are some amusing character exchanges as the heroine arrives in the early eighteenth century from 2020 and is wearing only a bikini!
Words from the twenty first century create amusing confusion too.

Who Brought The Dog To Church? by Tracy Smoak is a delightful contemporary Christian novel about community, care and friendship.
The cast of characters are realistically drawn. They are an eclectic bunch whom you could meet in any small town. The women have one thing in common – compassion – where they see a need, it is met. There are some huge hearts.
There is the difficult topic of domestic violence which is sensitively portrayed by Tracy Smoak. Her style of writing enables the reader to easily picture the victim and the abuser, as we get inside their heads.
There is also the theme of loss as women struggle with grief after losing their husbands. “Only her hope in eternity kept her from going mad with grief.” Because of Jesus we can have the hope of heaven. We witness a character who thinks she is alone in her grief, without realising that others have trodden the same path. Our experiences help us to come alongside others and help them on their journeys.
Within the tale the church functions as Jesus intended. “She needed a friend who understood her sorrows and offered hope.” Women support others. The prayer chain rallies to petition God. Although a miscommunication brings some humorous results.
A lovely Yorkshire Terrier called Sweetie becomes a character in her own right. We witness the loyal bond between a dog and her owner as well as a desire to protect.
