Eyes Like Mine By Julie Wright

Eyes Like Mine Eyes Like Mine by Julie Wright

My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is a very heart felt book. The two main characters, the great,great, great,Grandmother and the great, great, great granddaughter (I think I am off a few of the greats!) are very different. Depending upon your own personality you will like the one and be irritated by the other. It also has LDS messages of pioneers and their sacrifices, praying and having faith. This doesn't mean that you still won't enjoy this book if you are not LDS. If you are Christian and believe in God, you will like this novel.

Liz, the granddaughter, is forced into a harsh situation as her parents are divorced and she is forced to be Mother, Father and sister to her younger siblings. I have to say, Julie Wright does an excellent job of portraying a family adjusting to life after a divorce. I have been divorced for a year and felt myself totally relating to the thoughts and feelings of the Mom and the children. I praise Julie, for bringing this hard situation to life. Those who have never experienced divorce in their lives can see the devastating consequences of divorce. Hopefully, the readers will also see how they can be of help, to those families in this situation, and offer much love and support.

This book does have time travel involved without the fantasy aspect. I still really liked how it was all portrayed. It is a book that shows how to love and show gratitude for your ancestors. It also is a book that teaches how wading through trials and hardships requires sacrifices on our part.

I enjoyed reading "Eyes Like Mine". Julie Wright is a very great author that knows how to tell a good story. View all my reviews >>
