Keira and Kirsten struggle with their fractured pasts and jumbled present Will truth and honesty be the catalysts that allow the entire family to find peaceInspired by events in Lauraine Snelling's own life REUNION is the author's finest novel to date I struggled to get through this book It was so boring and bugged me so much I actually hate to say that about a book because I know the author put a lot into this book but I also can't help the way I feelSometimes I find religious fiction overworked with the faith and religious details because it feels overworked to mewe get it they're a people of great faith This is funny because I'm religious but usually it just feels overplayed I felt a little that way with this book but not too bad I actually saw a lot of and I think this is somewhat what the author was going for religious imperfection with pious people This did feel natural and full of real life We do seem to be too judgmental of others easy to see flaws in others before we go ahead and pull out that beam in our own eyes I really struggled with the over unnecessary super detail of the mundane that made no difference whatsoever to the story the character of the peopleor anything that had to do with anything It was so distracting and frustrating that I actually felt myself tensing up and getting uite moody whilst reading this book I seriously could not care less if someone turned the stove on to med high before stirring blah blah blah on the stove It was than that it was taking the dinner out of the freezer from the cooking binge that had been done a couple of weeks ago I meanREALLY It was brought up several times that the preacher's mom had died at such young agebut she had only passed like 3 years before sohow young could she really have been she had adult grandchildren for crying out loud There was just way overkill on the step by step play of the mundane I'm guessing to make it relatable that had absolutely no importance to the book which is too bad because it really distracted me from appreciating anything the book was really aboutI did give it one star because I get the judge not and forgive morals in the story I need to do some of that myself right now evidently

Reunion Author Lauraine SnelliKeira Johnston a year old mother of two grown sons believes she lives a good Christian life without secrets until she discovers a life jarring fact her late mother kept hidden all her life Kiera was born out of wedlock and the man she had always known Gosh this one was really bad So bad I can't even fathom passing it along to my sister to read who I pass along all my books once I'm done It usually takes me a week to read a book This one took me 2 days and it wasn't because I couldn't put it down It was like because I skipped paragraphs and basically then skimmed over the rest Why complete a book if I don't like it Because I need to finish a book I start always The name of the book is Reunion but it's not really about the family reunion Actually very little is about the family reunion party There was lots of writing leading up to the party like locating photographs from the deceased mother's home to be made into books for everyone and all the food preparation for the party The actual party was a couple of pages of nothing too exciting except for two little spoiled boys thinking it was a birthday party and whining because there wasn't a cake with candles to blow out And wouldn't you know it turns out someone ended up bringing a cake so the boys were rewarded in the end BarfThe story was about shocking sarcasm of finding out a family secret that would had been buried along with their mother had Keira and her husband not decided to go on a trip to Norway and who then needed her birth certificate to apply for a passport Who at 50 hasn't had a need for their birth certificate before now or even thought to say Hey Mom can I have it Pretty lame if I do say so myself to base a story on SPOILER ALERTNot to be outdone with Keira's troubles of who her father is because that's why her passport was never given to her oh the shame of their mother You know how he that would be Keira's brother Pastor Marcus idolizes our mother She conceived a baby out of wedlock What kind of woman does that make her I loved the come back Most likely a very unhappy and terrified woman Pastor Marcus' 17 year old daughter ends up being in a predicament the same predicament her grandmother was in 50 years ago What wasn't so acceptable back then is really no shocker today because yes these things still happen and even happen to Pastor's children especially when they aren't given the talk yes you can get pregnant when you don't have protected sex even if it's your first time and only time Do kids still believe that nonsense today in this day and age of easy access to finding everything there is on the internet And then when Kristen's brother and wife can't conceive it was pretty obvious what was going to happen Gag I felt like I was reading about a family in the 1950's with the women folk cooking their three meals a day and in great detail too of what they would be eating And of course being a 1950's story even though it's 2012 book was written they always had a homemade dessert after dinnerI just rolled my eyes when Kristen was annoyed that no one was even here to set the table Did she have to take care of everything asshe turned the chicken and forked the potatoes to see if they were done Seems pretty ridiculous to me when she was moaning about this considering her husband would just leave the table when they were done eating without even clearing his own dirty dishesThis story was one big disaster
