Beneath the Night Tree: A Review
She is a good writer.
No, she is a great writer.
Her writing is uncommon for this type of novel. You know . . . the kind of book I call “vacation reading.”
Nicole Baart is descriptive but not syrupy. Detailed but not boring. Artful but not dripping in believability.
Beneath the Night Tree is a book that is hard to put down. It is like continually opening up a present as the narration follows a single mom’s journey to discovering where she belongs,
I had whispered to him the words we long to hear above all else, even if we don’t always realize it: I want you. Of course, there are a million different ways to say it. I love you. Will you marry me? You are mine. But it all comes down to the same thing: belonging. i think that’s why when God invites us into HIs family with arms wide open, we aren’t just honorary children. We’re adopted. We belong.
I really don’t want to tell you much about this book . . . just read it. It captures the trials of a single mom, redemption, life, disappointment, wanting to be accepted – loved – belonging.
Thanks to Tyndale for sending me a copy of Beneath the Night Tree to read and review. I was not paid for this review nor do I have to return the book.
