Daisy Chain: A Review


I am currently reading this book but I decided to go ahead and post my review of it because I want to spread the word now that it's been released. Daisy Chain is a great story and very well written-- but I would expect nothing less from my friend Mary DeMuth. I have long respected her both as a writer and a person. So I knew I had to get my hands on this book just as soon as it came out! If you are looking for a story that is part mystery, part gripping examination of characters and their motivations, this is well worth picking up. The relationship of Jed with his friend Daisy, his father, his mother, his sister and even Daisy's mother is at times troubling and at times sweet. The characters are so well developed and come off the pages as you read.

I am so excited about what I see happening in Christian fiction! It's encouraging to know there are authors out there who are talented and have inspirational stories to share with the rest of us. I love reading great writing more than anything... including chocolate. So knowing that I can pick up a Christian fiction book with the confidence that it's going to contain a great story that is well written (like Daisy Chain) just thrills me to pieces!

I am reading Daisy Chain right now...into chapter 14...and I hate having to put it down to go to bed or work!!
It is very riveting.
I like the fact too that it's book one of a trilogy, so there's more to come.

Thank you for the review, I too have enjoyed Mrs. Demuth writings. Her "Ordinary Mom, Extraordinary God" was such a blessing to me at a difficult time. I will definitley check this one out too.
